Pumpkin bars are a delightful relative to pumpkin pie or pumpkin pie bars. Mine are easy to make with a simple gluten-free crust.





  • 16 ounces grass-fed cream cheese
  • 8 ounces grass-fed mascarpone cheese
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Prepare crust and bake in a 9×13 or 8×8 baking dish for 15 minutes. (Note: Crust will be thicker in an 8×8 dish.)
  3. In a food processor, add in cream cheese, mascarpone, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.
  4. Process ingredients until completely smooth.
  5. Remove crust from oven and fill with cream cheese mixture.
  6. Place the bars back in the oven and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Top with whipped coconut cream, if desired.
