These Gluten & Sugar Free, Keto Fathead Pumpkin Pie Bars are Made with a Delicious Low Carb Fathead Dough.
For the Pumpkin Filling:
1½ Cup Canned Pumpkin
3 Tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tbsp Sweetener
(I used this one)
1 Tsp Cinnamon
For The Dough:
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
3 Tbsp Cream Cheese
½ Cup Almond Flour
¼ Cup Coconut Flour
2 Tbsp Sweetener (divided)
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Baking Powder
½ Tsp Xanthan Gum (optional)
1 Tsp Butter (to grease the pan)
Pre Heat oven to 375 F. Melt the shredded mozzarella and the cream cheese in a frying pan over medium heat. (This step can also be done in a microwave) Remove from the heat, then stir the melted cheeses until they’re well combined. Using a mixing bowl, add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, sweetener and eggs to the cheese mixture. Mix until well combined.
Melt the butter then use it to grease the sides and bottom of a square baking pan. Press ⅔ of the dough into the bottom and slightly up the sides of your pan. (only an inch or two up) Using a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap on top, makes it easier to press it out.
In a small bowl mix the pumpkin with whipping cream, sweetener and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Then spread the pumpkin mixture evenly over the dough. Break the remaining fathead dough into small bits and sprinkle it over the pumpkin mixture. Mix ½ Tsp of cinnamon with 1 Tbsp of sweetener. Then sprinkle it on top of the bars. Bake 20 -25 minutes.
Note: Make sure to use Pure Pumpkin Puree. Canned Pumpkin Pie Filling has Wheat Flour in it!
