Coconut Flour Protein Rich Pumpkin Bars

I love everything pumpkin.  I feel like I'm hoarding pumpkin - but I use a lot of it.  Can't get enough.  Here's a pumpkin 'bread' recipe I found online using coconut flour.... It's another from WellnessMama, but again, I tweaked for my own purposes, and it turned out yummy!!
You'll need:
1 cup canned pumpkin
3 large eggs
4 tbsp liquid egg whites
3/8 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted/liquid)
1 tsp baking soda
dash stevia
1tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup no sugar added/unsweetened applesauce
2.5 scoops vanilla protein powder
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp unsweetened coconut milk

Preheat oven to 400.
Grease 8x8 baking dish w/coconut oil (separate from 2tbsp in recipe)
Combine all ingredients in bowl - mix with hand mixer.
Pour batter into baking dish.
Bake 25-30 minutes.
Makes 8 servings.
