for the bars:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 2 very ripe bananas mashed*
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce*
  • 1 ½ cups sugar

for the topping:

  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 tbsp. Unsalted butter cold and cut into small pieces

for the glaze:

  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tbsp. Almond milk


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2. Combine the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt together in a bowl. Set aside. In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine canned pumpkin, mashed bananas, applesauce and sugar. Mix on medium speed with the paddle attachment until combined.
  • 3. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, mixing until combined.
  • 4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  • 5. Prepare the streusel topping by adding the flour, sugar, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice to a medium bowl. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • 6. Pour the streusel mixture on top of the pumpkin batter. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • 7. Prepare the glaze by adding the butter and powdered sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and beating on medium speed until combined. Slowly add in the almond milk until it reaches a consistency where it can be drizzled.
  • 8. Drizzle the glaze over the slightly cooled pumpkin bars. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.


I substituted 4 eggs with 2 medium bananas and 1 cup vegetable oil with 1 cup applesauce.
