Alkaline Diet Recipe: Sweet Pumpkin Breakfast Bars




These breakfast bars are so much tastier than store-bought granola bars! And they are so much better for you too!

It doesn’t take much effort to combine these nutrient-dense, low-acid ingredients. And they’ll last up to a few days, but good luck keeping them around that long if your house is anything like mine.

They make a quick on-the-go alkaline breakfast, kids will love these in their school lunches, and you can enjoy them as an afternoon snack.

Give them a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.

Sweet Pumpkin Breakfast Bars

Serves 4


2 cups gluten-free oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill) dates
1 cup organic canned pumpkin puree or fresh pumpkin
1 tsp. vanilla (I prefer 4 drops of Medicine Flower Vanilla)
3 pitted dates, finely diced
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. hemp seeds
1/4 cup raw almonds, chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
1 tsp. coconut oil


Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease an 8×8 pan with the coconut oil. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Press mixture into the pan and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the top is golden and firm to the touch. Let cool. Slice into bars and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


After following directions above to combine ingredients, form into bars. Place bars on dehydrator tray at 115° F for 24 hours. Flip halfway.

Bonus tip: For variety, you can substitute in grated green apples for the canned pumpkin.

Serve and enjoy!

    Have you thought about posting the nutritional values along with your recipes? I would love to try this recipe but I am watching my carbs and calories so it would be helpful to know where I can fit these bars in with my nutrients.

    Hi Sanrina, Such an interesting question. When making desserts I love using in recipes vs anything else. All recipes have a healthy fat too...which helps! I'd rather have my children have the chia pudding recipes from Alkamind than sorbet (sugar cane dates etc)
