Pumpkin Perfect Bars 

Pumpkin Perfect Bars 

The best fall snack — Pumpkin Perfect Bars. This recipe is a fall twist on my classic Homemade Perfect Bars. A touch of pumpkin and fall spices take this treat to the next level. 

I love prepping a batch of these on Sunday to keep in the fridge for easy grab-and-go snacks. The almond butter + protein powder give these bars staying power (aka they keep you fuller, longer).

I can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on this pumpkin recipe!
