Pumpkin Pecan Bars

I just HAD to make these after seeing them on Heavenly Homemakers I made some modifications. Mainly made them dairy free, and didn’t use oats (since my youngest seems to have an aversion!).

A delightful autumn dessert!

Dairy Free Pumpkin Pecan Bars

Yield – 12 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 35-40 minutes



  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter (use dairy free)


  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream (Use soy milk for dairy free option!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice


  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In large mixing bowl, combine flours, brown sugar and cut in the butter using a pastry blender.
  • Once crumbly, add the crust mixture to a greased 9×13-inch baking dish. Press into the bottom with a measuring cup. (Will appear loose and that’s OK!)
  • In same mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, milk, eggs and pumpkin pie spice. Pour over the crust and spread out over the crust.
  • Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in small mixing bowl, toss together the chopped pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon. After 20 minutes, remove the baking dish and top with the pecan mixture. Continue baking at 350 for another 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean in the center.
  • Let cool on cooling rack and cut into 2 inch x 2 inch squares.
  • Top each Pumpkin Pecan Bar with dollop of whipped cream.
