Note:  This is a slightly modified, gluten-free version of my Almond Butter Strawberry Energy Bar recipe.  The cinnamon really makes the difference!

You can find me eating one of these this weekend at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort 🙂

Nut Butter Energy Bars (GF) - IMG_1372

“Wet” Ingredients:

1 box (12.3 oz) Firm Silken Tofu (Mori Nu)
1/2 C vegan brown sugar or 1/3 C fruit jam
1/2 C non-dairy milk
1 t vanilla extract
2/3 C Once Again sunflower seed butter

Dry Ingredients:

1/4 C EACH:  quinoa flour, millet flour, brown rice flour, garbanzo bean flour & rolled oats (GF)
1/3 C oat flour (GF)
3 T ground flax
2 T fine shred unsweetened coconut
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt

In a food processor, puree the “wet” ingredients.  Add to the dry ingredients.  Spread the mixture in a greased square glass pan.  (I like to use coconut oil to grease pans.)  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Cool completely before cutting.  A pastry cutter works well.  Store in the freezer with a little space between each bar.

I decided to morph a pumpkin cake recipe with a pumpkin pie recipe to make these healthier, pie-like muffins.  I also made them gluten-free.  These are just a touch sweet and spongy moist.


15 oz canned pumpkin
12-14 oz package drained tofu
1/3 C maple syrup
1/3 C non dairy milk
2 t vanilla extract
*Optional- up to 1/2 C vegan brown sugar or 1/2 C evaporated cane juice + 2 T molasses


1/2 C EACH:  quinoa flour, millet flour, garbanzo bean flour, and brown rice flour
1/3 C oat flour or rolled oats (use gluten free (GF) oats, if needed)
1/3 C ground flax
1 T baking powder
3 t cinnamon
3/4 t nutmeg
3/4 t ground ginger
1/2 t salt
1/4 t allspice
1/4 t ground clove


Process the wet ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.  Stir the wet and dry ingredients together.  Portion in muffin liners and bake at 350 degrees for 23 minutes.  Makes 18.

(*Depends on how sweet you want these. I like to keep sugar to the bare minimum.)
