Spooky Pumpkin Slices (Gluten Free)

Happy Halloweeeeeeen.

It wouldn’t be a proper Halloween without another pumpkin recipe right?

I struggled to come up with a name for this so I’m going with Spooky Pumpkin Slices, creativity is rife tonight.

Ingredients (makes 10)

For the Crust:

  • 160g walnuts
  • 160g dessicated coconut
  • 160g soft dates
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp date nectar ( I used Beloved Date Nectar)

For the Pumpkin Filling:


To make the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Combine all crust ingredients in a food processor and process until all ingredients are incorporated and you get a thick paste consistency.
  2. Press the mixture evenly into a baking tray and push up the sides about 1/2 inch so you have a hollow centre. It should be sticky enough to stay but not so sticky that you cant press it down. No need to pre-bake. Set aside

To make the filling:

  1.  Add pumpkin with the other filling ingredients to a blender, or smooth consistency.
  2.  Pour the filling into the crust and smooth out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until the filling is set – it can move a little but it shoudn’t be watery
  3. Once the filling is set, remove from oven and let cool to room temperature before storing, covered, in the refrigerator.

Nom nom nom…

Have a very spooky Halloween!
