Paleo Nutella Swirled Pumpkin Pie Bars

Paleo pumpkin pie bars with homemade Nutella swirled through a layer of pumpkin pie filling on a gluten free, dairy free, and paleo shortbread crust!

Beginning paleo baking is equivalent to starting from scratch. I feel like I should ignore all I know and approach it as if it were a whole new universe.

At this moment, I consider myself a newbie with some rookie luck who has a lot to learn from the professionals. It’s an odd position to be after a few years of operating this site, but it’s also kind of enjoyable.

One thing I’ve learned is that producing frosting that doesn’t need to be refrigerated is very difficult, and that I should probably give up for a time since I could go insane trying.

How to make paleo Nutella

Instead of cramming things with chocolate chips, I’ve started drizzling them with honey and, as of this recipe, swirling the tops with homemade paleo Nutella.

I discovered this recipe and, to be honest, it was a lot simpler than I expected. That gets me irritated that I didn’t do it sooner! Make some, put it in a jar, and use it as you see fit.

But first, make these pumpkin pie bars.

Ingredients for Nutella pumpkin pie bars

You don’t need anything weird to build them. You don’t have to worry about preparing a pie crust and worrying that it may break.

Just take some:

  • genuine maple syrup
  • shredded coconut
  • coconut nectar
  • eggs
  • a can of pureed pumpkin
  • a few spices
  • as well as lots of coconut oil

Coconut oil is essential

Coconut oil has become a staple in my paleo baking. It works well as a fat substitute and may be utilized in either liquid or solid form to provide diverse textures in your completed product.

I’ve been purchasing a lot of it, but I can only locate it in little containers, and I go through them quickly. I probably seem insane with a cart full of coconut oil all the time. I’m sure the folks at the supermarket call me coconut lady or something.

You’re going to use the coconut oil twice

Once in the shortbread crust and once again in the homemade Nutella.

You may just keep your jar in a cupboard at room temperature, unless you live in Antarctica and room temperature is 40 degrees, in which case it will be too chilly.

This crust offers a good basis for the pumpkin pie filling, and gives for a gorgeous layered look when you plunge your fork in for a taste.

I wasn’t even aiming for that when I built it, so it was a great surprise!

That swirl, on the other hand. Have a look at it.

You may top it with whipped cream, as is customary. Instead, you may be a rebel and eat it without any toppings at all.

I’ve sprinkled sea salt on top previously and really suggest it. That adds a particular something to it.

Do you know who else enjoys it? This cat is insane. This crazy cat that never leaves me alone in the kitchen.

This crazy cat who says, “No, get off the table!” truly means “Come climb up here and assist yourself.”


A word of advice: Indulge in as many as you can before your wild cat attempts to steal them.

Tis the season for all the (paleo) pumpkin things!
