Dairy and Gluten Free Pumpkin Bars

*Quick Tip – While making these pumpkin bars you may come across all kinds of different gluten-free cake mixes. I find that some of them are sweeter than others.

When using the Betty Crocker brand yellow cake mix I always add an extra 1/4 cup of sugar into the crust mixture when preparing. This is a matter of taste. We typically like sweeter things at our house. I did not add this to the recipe below but feel free to add if you like things on the sweeter side as well.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bars


  • 1 package gluten-free yellow or white cake mix

  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2/3 cup almond milk or other dairy free milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup sugar + additional 1/4 cup sugar

2. In a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup melted dairy-free butter, remaining cake mix, and 1 egg until blended. Press the prepared mixture into the bottom of the prepared 9x13in pan.

3. In a separate bowl whip together 2 eggs, the can of pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, almond milk, and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth.

4. Pour the pumpkin mixture over top of the prepared crust in the pan.

5. In a separate bowl mix together the cup of set aside cake mix, 1/4 cup remaining sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter until streusel-like. Sprinkle mixture all over the top of the prepared pumpkin bars.
