  • 120g pumpkin puree; I used canned
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) maple syrup
  • 60g Cassava flour; can be replaced with plain white rice flour if desired
  • 60g dark chocolate of choice roughly chopped
  • 60g smooth roast cashew butter; sunflower seed butter for a nut free option
  • 15g Pulsin Vanilla Whey Protein
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter



Mix together pumpkin puree, maple syrup and cashew butter in a large bowl.


Add the cassava flour, protein powder and sea salt. Stir well to combine.


Divide mixture into 6 even balls. Shape to form mini bars and place on a baking paper lined tray into the freezer for 30 minutes.


Melt chocolate in the microwave using 30 second increments. Stir in coconut oil or clarified butter.


One at a time, coat the pumpkin bar filling in the chocolate, submerging using a large spoon and lifting from the chocolate using a fork, tapping off the excess before returning to the baking paper lined tray to set.


Store in the fridge for up to five days.
