Pumpkin Slices – Gluten Free

Pumpkin slices

Some of you may find this weird but this was my first time cooking with pumpkin!! Its not an ingredient you would see much of here in Ireland apart from Halloween, you wouldn’t see that many recipes or dishes in restaurants with it but I am now a LOVER of pumpkin! I saw this recipe on Madison’s blog Eating4Balance and she called them pumpkin pie bars 🙂 I have to say they were truly scrumptious! I then proceeded to make  pumpkin soup, pumpkin curry and pumpkin calzone (another one of Madisons recipes) along with a second batch of these gorgeous slices with the rest of the pumpkin. I amended the recipe a little as I couldn’t get my hands on some of the ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup / 100g of Almond Flour
  • 1 Banana Mashed
  • 1 Cup of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 Cup / 125 ml Organic Honey
  • 2 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 Free Range Egg
  • 3/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • Spray Oil

Pre-heat Oven to 180c / 350f

Line your baking dish (a square one preferably) with baking parchment / greaseproof paper and spray with oil

Mix the banana, egg, pumpkin, honey and water together in a bowl

Mix the almond flour, sea salt and cinnamon together in a separate bowl

Put the pumpkin mixture in to the flour mixture and mix well

Pour the mixture in to the lined dish

Bake for an hour and check, it could take a little longer.  It should be golden and a crust should be visible on top.

The first time mine took one hour and 10 minutes but was ready in 55 minutes the second time so just keep an eye on it

Remove from the oven and let cool in the dish for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack.  Cut in to 9 pieces and munch up ! Delish
