Chocolate layer:
1/2 cup coconut oil , melted
1/2 cup cocoa or cacao powder
2-3 T maple syrup

Directions:

  • In a food processor , combine the pecans, pumpkin and spices until you get a coarse ground consistency. Then add in the dates and blend a little more. You may need to add a tiny bit of water for the mixture to come together.
  • Line an 8×8 glass baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Press 1/2 the pumpkin/pecan mixture into the pan and place it in the freezer.
  • In a large bowl , mix all the ingredients for the chocolate.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the first pumpkin layer.
  • Then press the remaining pumpkin mixture on top and place the whole thing back in the freezer for 30-35 minutes.
  • Once chilled, cut into bars and serve.
