Pumpkin Coconut Squares

Yeah!  Pumpkin Season is Here!

Yes, it’s that time of the year again.  Leaves are changing and there is a cool crisp breeze in the air up here on the mountain top.

More importantly…it’s Pumpkin season. The best season of the year.   And if you take a peek on Pinterest you can tell that it is in full swing.

My step-daughter and I love pumpkin.  Heck, I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to all things pumpkin.  My husband doesn’t understand our obsession, but hey…we can’t all be perfect.  We love him just the way he is!  He seems to be more obsessed with football and baseball right now.

This time of the year I start experimenting to see what we can create with pumpkin puree.

This year I developed a simple recipe for yummy Pumpkin Coconut Squares.

A Quick and Easy Recipe

This recipe is really easy to make and takes me less than 10 minutes to put together.

The ingredients are:

  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Sweetened Flake Coconut
  • Quick Cooking Oats
  • White Chocolate Chips (okay, okay…so I use them in almost all my recipes)
  • Raisins
  • Sweetened Condensed MIlk
  • Egg

The pumpkin and the coconut taste delicious together in a dessert square.

Okay, okay…so I realize I use white chocolate chips a lot, but I love them.  Heck, I would put them in a roast if I could.  Hmm, I might have to think about that.  Just kidding!  Kind of…

And a few easy steps…

The most difficult part of this quick recipe will probably be not eating the white chocolate chips before you bake the squares!

Make sure you use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.  The puree is good enough for what we are going to do.

  1. First, you will combine the dry ingredients.

2.  Second, you will mix the wet ingredients.
