With autumn just around the corner, I am finding myself unearthing every excuse in the book for baking with pumpkin. One of my favorite flavors and tacked tightly to the long list of reasons why autumn is my favorite season.
These pumpkin bars are just the ticket for an ideal fall snack or dessert. Gluten free, easy to make (I threw the “batter” together in roughly 5 minutes, then popped it in the oven and viola, done), low in calories and much healthier than a usual pumpkin bar dessert item.
Lightly sweet, filling, oaty, with just a bit of chocolate thrown in (optional of course, as if you aren’t a chocolate lover, they would be just as great without chocolate chips)
