Coconut Pumpkin Breakfast Bars {Paleo, Vegan + GF}

November 18, 2015

Need a healthy grab n’ go breakfast? Make these delicious Paleo Coconut Pumpkin Breakfast Bars for the perfect way to satisfy your early morning appetite!

One of the biggest pet peeves I have is when people say they don’t have time to make breakfast. 


It erks me the way it erks my dad when I tell him to exercise (he still doesn’t do it). Let me tell ya something, if you have time go to the drive thru and get your Starbucks or McDonald’s breakfast sandwich, you can quickly grab a healthy breakfast on the go.That why I always make breakfast for my dad, because if I didn’t, he’d be going to McDonalds every morning to get an egg mcmuffin and he’d probably be thirty pounds heavier (your welcome Dad).  Its as simple as making something the night before and then just grabbing it when you leave the door.


These Coconut Pumpkin Breakfast Bars are simple to make and are even easier to grab and go the next morning.  Plus they help keep you full by supplying you with a good source of protein, healthy fats and a tad bit of natural sweetener.  Next time some one complains that they don’t have time to make breakfast, show them this recipe and tell them to stop talking.


And is pumpkin still a thing? Because I dunno about you, but it will always be a year’ round thing for moi! Pumpkin isn’t just for fall, peeps!


Paleo Pumpkin Coconut Breakfast Bars



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place almonds and coconut on a cooking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes, or until slightly toasted.
  3. Add almonds and coconut to a food processor and process until it is a flour or meal-like texture. Add to a large bowl.
  4. In a small bowl combine pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon. Add to almond-coconut mixture and mix well.
  5. Add in dark chocolate chips and use your hands to mix all ingredients together well.
  6. Spray cooking spray (or use parchment paper) in a large loaf pan and transfer the mixture to pan and use a spatula to smooth out. Sprinkle on shredded coconut.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Let cool and slice into about 8 bars.

    Pumpkin is a year thing for me too! I love this. And I love you calling out the non-breakfast people. There’s always, always a way.

    Pinned. Not only is this a fabulous sounding recipe, but I totally agree with you.

    Too many people make the excuse that they don’t have time to make breakfast, if only they spent a little more time and effort in preparing things like this, beforehand, instead of spending time watching TV or idling about! recently posted…Simple Spiced Carrot SoupMy Profile

    Don’t have time for breakfast!?!? Crazy people! My problem is choosing, because there are so many breakfast foods I love! That’s why I often have breakfast foods for dinner too 🙂 These healthy lovely little bars look like they could double as dessert in my opinion. I love the chunky, chewy, chocolate-filled texture! And I’m with ya on pumpkin year round, I totally made a pie in the middle of July last summer 😀
