In a medium mixing bowl, add the melted coconut oil, almond butter,coconut sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and creamer t and stir until well-combined.
Next, Add the pumpkin puree and stir well.

Pour mixture into the 8×8 pan and place in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until you can stick a toothpick in the middle.

While the bars are cooling, prepare the frosting.
In a medium bowl, beat the grass-fed butter until smooth and cream.
