Autumn Pumpkin Bars Recipe Video

Annmarie found some pumpkins here and decided to make a raw food recipe for pumpkin bars that she got from our friend and raw food chef Frank Giglio’s book. The best news? (Besides the fact that they taste awesome) Is that they’re sweetened with dried apricots! I know you’ll like these, take a look…

First, grind pumpkin seeds in food processor to fine pieces. Remove and place in a large mixing bowl.

Second, chop squash/pumpkin in food processor in to fine pieces.

Third, grind remaining ingredients until a ball stats to form.

On a baking tray lined with parchment paper or on your dehydrator rack. Spread mixture into pan to desired thickness. You can dehydrate if you like I would suggest 118 for 6-8 hours. Or you can just refrigerate and eat as is!

You can also make them into balls!

Enjoy and share!!

Thanks for the simple and easy Raw Autumn Pumpkin Bars recipe. I’ve never eaten a raw pumpkin dish before but I’ll have to give it a shot now. By the way guys, what about the ingredient measurements. Help needed there!
