Skinny Pumpkin Pie Bars - your favorite pie turned into a bar, and it's gluten free!
So what's everyone's plans for Thanksgiving this year? I actually have to work that day and will be helping out at a Thanksgiving buffet. The only thing I like during Thanksgiving is the desserts and my family makes pies. Grandma will usually make a pumpkin or apple pie. Usually I think of Thanksgiving as eating a ton of food and taking a nap after that. I'm not really a big fan of turkey because it normally ends up dry or my family is pretty famous for not getting a turkey cooked on time. The only way to make turkey better is with a ton of gravy and the sides are just blah to me. That is why I hardly have any Thanksgiving recipes on this site.
These pumpkin pie bars are low calorie and taste just like pumpkin pie. Plus they are gluten free! The crust is made of honey nut cheerios instead of graham cracker crumbs.Print
Skinny Pumpkin Pie Bars
- Yield: 12 1x
- 2 ½ c. Gluten Free Honey Nut Cheerios cereal
- 3 tbsp. sugar or firmly packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons of light butter, melted butter
- 2 eggs
- ½ c. brown sugar
- 1 15- oz. can Pumpkin puree
- 1 12- oz. can fat free evaporated milk
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. ginger

- Make crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9”-x-9” square baking pan.
- Add the cheerios, sugar, and butter into a food processor. Pulse the cereal into fine crumbs. If you don't have a food processor, add all the ingredients to a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin or meat mallet.
- Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the greased baking pan. Bake until crust turns golden, about 7-8 minutes. Let cool while you make filling. Turn the oven temperature up to 425 degrees.
- Make filling. Beat all filling ingredients together until smooth with an electric hand mixer. Pour filling into crust and bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake about 35 minutes longer or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool to room temperature then refrigerate until chilled.
- Sift powdered sugar over sliced squares before serving.

These are yummy! I like not having the thick pie crust. I used cinnamon toast squares cereal. I topped the cooked bars with chocolate pudding. Really good for a chocolate lover.
I haven't experimented with that before so it's hard to say. Glad you liked them!
The serving size is 1 bar makes. Makes 12.
Thank you! for updating the recipe! I made these today and they were soooooo delicious!!!! I made them with coconut sugar though. The only thing is that the color was too dark. My pumpkin pure was colorful but when I mixed everything the final color was a little dark. What would you recommend so my bars are a little more yellowish/orange color? Thank youuuu they are so so so GREAT!
I just made these and they're good! They have a pumpkin spice Cheerios that I bet would be great, as well for those who are nut free. What is the serving size? Thank you!
I updated the recipe so it makes more sense. 🙂
Hi! I definitely want to make these. I have a question. The last 4 ingredients listos are for the crust, right? And all the ingredients above for the filling? Cant waiiiiit to try these!! :p
