1 cup pitted dates
½ cup raw cashews
2 Tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds
2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
⅓ cup vanilla or pumpkin protein powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup pure pumpkin puree
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. You can leave the mixture a little chunky if you'd like as well!
In an 8x8 baking pan, place parchment paper on the bottom.
Add in the energy bar batter from the food processor - it will be quite sticky.
Press down the mixture into a pan and use the back of a wet spoon to smooth the top.
Garnish with coconut flakes and chopped pecans, press these firmly into the bar mixture.
Freeze for 2-3 hours or until solid, and cut into 8 bars.
Store in the fridge or freezer.
