Yummy Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Bars; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Printer Friendly Version

Low-FODMAP pumpkin bars are an amazing low-FODMAP autumn snack.  I make these low-FODMAP pumpkin bars without any add-ins for a classic flavor, but you can style this low-FODMAP recipe with seeds, walnuts or pecans!

I love a low-FODMAP spicy pumpkin treat in the fall, or anytime of the year. Packed with antioxidants, fiber and so much flavor, low-FODMAP pumpkin bars are like the colors of autumn.  A gorgeous palette of low-FODMAP taste, texture and nutrition.

Enjoy these low-FODMAP pumpkin bars with low-FODMAP cream cheese frosting, my low-FODMAP vegan ‘butter’cream, or low-FODMAP Opera Cream/Ermine frosting.

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
