Gluten-Free | Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Squares

No gluten, no oil, and no butter- you heard it right the first time. I've created the perfect gilt free holiday treat, Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Squares. I ditched the gluten for gluten-free flour and almond flour and subbed out oil and butter for applesauce for extra moisture and natural sweetness, so there is less sugar added too. Now you don't have to feel bad about making a lap around the dessert table, get your hands on these!

Preheat oven to 350°F degrees. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

Ingredients are as follows.

In a bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, eggs, applesauce, and vanilla, until fully incorporated.

Fold in flour mixture and combine until the batter is smooth. Pour into prepared baking pan.

Melt or microwave Nutella, for about 20 seconds. Add roughly 9 dollops of Nutella over the pumpkin batter. Using a wooden stick or small fork, swirl the Nutella into the pumpkin batter, creating a swirl pattern.

Bake in preheated 350°F degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until or until toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool in pan. Remove from pan and allow to completely cool on top of a wire rack. Cut into squares and enjoy.
