Pumpkin Butter Bars with Pecans

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose or einkorn flour
1/2 cup brown sugar or sucanat
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 cups pumpkin butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 375º F. Line a 9″ square baking pan with parchment.

In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cardamom, and the salt. Add in the butter and combine using a pastry blender or a long-tine fork until crumbly.

Place 2/3 of the crumbled mixture into the parchment-lined pan and press to create a bottom crust. Spoon the pumpkin butter over the top to cover, spreading lightly when necessary so as not to disturb the bottom layer.

Mix the pecans with the remaining crumbled mixture and spoon over the top of the pumpkin butter.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until top is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Cut into bars and serve.

Makes 16 bars.
