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.

  1. 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. :)

  2. 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!

    • 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!

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

  4. 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.
