No-Bake Pumpkin Protein Bars

Good morning! Happy Friday!

No-Bake Pumpkin Protein Bars

Apparently, I’m into no-bake recipes lately because here is another one! And since a lot of us are into pumpkin right now, I figured this recipe would likely be a winner this time of year. These bars remind me a lot of cheesecake, texture-wise, but without the “cheese” flavor. Instead, the flavor is a combo of pure pumpkin mixed with sweet vanilla. Guys, they’re so good.

  1. The sprinkles on top – so cute!

    I’m not really *that* into pumpkin flavored things (cue gasp!) but this recipe sounds really tasty. Pinning it to give it a try! I do adore no-bake treats 🙂

  2. These look yummy and super easy to make!
    Thanks for sharing! And would it be ok, if I made this & shared the recipe on my
    blog? (I would of course link back to your blog.)
