Pumpkin Pie Crumble Bars

by megan on September 21, 2009


This is one of my new favorite pumpkin recipes. I predict that I will be making this several times this Fall! It is so crumbly and full of sweet, cinnamon, pumpkin flavor! Believe it or not, this recipe is vegan. I used cornstarch instead of eggs, and soy milk instead of milk. If you want to use eggs and milk, you certainly can. For every 2 tablespoons of cornstarch use one egg, and use equal amounts of milk as soy milk. I also used Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Cake mix, but using Duncan Hines Yellow Cake mix would make it vegan too.


This dessert tastes wonderful alone, but adding whipped cream or a little vanilla ice cream would definitely kick it up a notch. Adding Haggen-Dazs Brown Sugar ice cream would take this treat to an entirely different level of tastiness! I am thinking I also might try this recipe using a spice cake mix to see how that pairs with the pumpkin filling. I think it might be quite the flavor combination!
