Chewy Pumpkin Spice Candy Recipe

These chewy pumpkin spice candies are delicious and addicting. I say that about pretty much any candy I make, because let’s face it. I don’t just have a sweet tooth, I have sweet teeth! Seeing that I don’t eat much in the way of sweets anymore, it is rare that I indulge and make candy or some other type of dessert or treat. However, fall rolled around and I realized I had a bunch of sunflower and pumpkin seeds in the freezer that needed to be used up, so it was the perfect time to make these tasty treats!

You really could use any nut or seed that you prefer. I have only made it with pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, but I imagine walnuts and/or pecans would be amazing! Depending on the thickness that you make the bars, they may end up being different textures. The thicker you make the bars, the more chewy they will be. If you spread the mixture out really thin, they end up being more like brittle, especially when chilled. I like to let these bars warm up to room temperature before serving. I think the flavors are much more pronounced, and you don’t have to worry about anyone breaking a tooth on a bar that is a tad too firm!

These bars would make great gifts, so if you’re making a goody basket for loved ones any time soon, this would be a great addition, as would my caramel glazed candied macadamia nuts.

  2. Hi, I love this recipe but like so many, I groan when I see maple syrup and/or honey because I can’t have any, ANY form of sugar except Xylitol and maybe some Stevia. Candida! Is there any way I can get the syrupy texture and sweetness of these liquid sweeteners with candida friendly alternatives?

    Thanks
    Sue

    • Hi Sue – The maple syrup and honey are what give it the caramel-y texture. I honestly don’t know much about candida friendly sweeteners, so I can’t advise as to what would work best. Two sites that I know are candida friendly are:

      You could check there for some ideas and maybe send one of them a message for suggestions? Sorry I can’t be of more help! Have a great evening! :)

  3. These look AMAZING! Thanks for sharing this recipe! One question–can I sub butter for ghee? I know ghee is awesome, but I don’t have any on-hand. Wondering if butter would work just the same? Thanks!

  4. Hi, Jessica–these look yummy! Do you know whether they would work with all coconut oil (no ghee) and all honey (no maple syrup)? Would love to try them!
