World, meet Pumpkin Spice Crumb Bars.

Pumpkin Spice Crumb Bars are easy and delicious perfect fall dessert Pumpkin Spice Crumb Bars Recipe

Inspired by Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, based on my original Crumb Bars recipe (which by the way is so so so easily adaptable) and lightened up with Greek yogurt. Absolutely delicious, perfectly balanced in flavor and texture. The crust is sturdy enough to hold the other two layers, yet it melts in your mouth. The pumpkin yogurt filling is so creamy and tastes like light pumpkin pie. The crumb topping bakes into crunchy mounds of cinnamon and brown sugar goodness. You can of course use sour cream in place of the yogurt.

Let me just say that my Hubby loved these bars! And he is not at all a fan of pumpkin pie. I had to stop him from eating a second bar or I would have nothing for the photo shoot. icon smile Pumpkin Spice Crumb Bars Recipe The kiddos – loved them, of course!

The dripping sauce you see in the photo is a maple caramel sauce (recipe coming soon!). You can use any caramel sauce or skip it.

If you want to make these for a get-together or a potluck, double the ingredients and bake it all in 9″x13″ pan. They are sure to please the crowd!

    I made these for my in laws and they loved it. I tried some myself and they were soooo tasty. The crust is very good and the pumpkin gooeyness in the middle has great flavor! Tonight I’m making a second batch per request of my family members. Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Sam! That’s fantastic! Thank you so much for trying the recipe and for letting me know!

    These are so yummy, I couldn’t even wait them to cool before digging in! I ran out of all-purpose flour, so I finished up with whole wheat and and just did 1/2 c. sugar to lessen my guilt of eating half the pan. I can’t wait to make these for my family at Thanksgiving dinner!

    I made these bars last night for a mini gathering. I realized too late that I only had a 1/2 cup of yogurt, so I made up the difference with extra pumpkin. They were a hit. So tasty and perfect for Fall. Thank you!

    This is just the recipe I’ve been looking for now that it’s fall, Anna. I love the pumpkin spice latte and can just imagine how delicious it is in crumb bar form.

    So yum! I am fully on board the pumpkin train this season already so these sound perfect. Plus, dessert, hello. :)

    I cannot get over how PERFECT these bars look! So gorgeous Anna! Those caramel drips are killing me… I’m not a big pumpkin pie person, but these may have to make an appearance on my thanksgiving table. I can definitely get into that buttery crust & crumbly streusel!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      Thank you so much, Allie! I think you are right! These would be great for Thanksgiving! I hope you get a chance to try the brown sugar crust – it’s my very favorite!

  8. Mercedes says

    Wow these bars look incredibly delicious! I would love the contrast of textures in these bars as well!

    Pure genius, Anna! Love that you made the pumpkin filling with Greek yogurt and that made them lighter. I can’t wait to share my pumpkin bars, too. No wonder you put off another recipe! Your bars look divine. :)
