I also knew the days would be fast paced and leave little wiggle room once the school year started. I’ve been on a bar kick and wanted to create a fall bar that didn’t take long to make and was good for me. It’s basically a fall party in your mouth. I’m slightly obsessed with them and you will be too after the first bite. 🙂

And if you need to dress up your kitchen, I have that covered too with this. 😉


  • 1/2 cup unsalted pecans
  • 1 cup unsalted almonds
  • 1 cup chopped and pitted dates
  • 3 Tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

What to do:

Pour the pecans and almonds into the food processor and pulse on a few times until they are semi-chopped. Add all the remaining ingredients into the food processor. Pulse on high and then on low or until it starts forming together into a sticky mixture. Line an 8 x 8 pan (or really any pan) with wax paper. I used a spatula to flatten the mixture into an even consistency in the pan. Smooth out the top and edges. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Cut to desired width. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator or counter.
