Spiced Pumpkin Caramel Brownie Bites [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


For the Base:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons smooth almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons oats (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa/cacao powder
  • 2 teaspoons superfood powder (optional)

For the Caramel Layer:

  • 6-7 dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Spiced Pumpkin Layer:

  • 3.5 ounces cooked pumpkin or butternut squash
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 3-4 tablespoons almond milk 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

For the Chocolate Topping:

  • 1.8 ounces vegan dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. First make the base by gently melting the coconut oil, almond butter, and maple syrup. Then stir in the oats and cacao/cocoa powder and mix to form a flapjack mixture. Press into a lined tin or tupperware box in an even layer. Set aside.
  2. Next place the drained dates (and 3 tablespoons of the water), peanut butter, and vanilla in a food processor and whiz up either until still slightly chunky or smooth.
  3. Spread over the base in an even layer then pop in the freezer.
  4. For the pumpkin layer: place all of the ingredients in a food processor and whiz up until quite thick and smooth. Spread this over the caramel then return to the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
