Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars recipe
This Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars recipe is super tasty and easy to make! You'll love these bars for a snack or dessert.
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ⅓ cup honey, sub maple syrup if vegan
- ½ cup pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
- 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips, plus extra for top
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Leave enough on the sides to allow you to pull the bars from the pan once cooked.
In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, microwave the coconut oil and honey in 10-second increments until it becomes more like a liquid. Stir well.
Add the oatmeal, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix together well. Allow to cool.
Once the mixture is just cool enough to keep all the chocolate chips from melting carefully fold them in.
Press the mixture into the pan. Smooth the top. Sprinkle any extra chocolate chips on the top you'd like and carefully pat them into the surface.
Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Use the parchment paper to pull the entire sheet of bars out of the pan. Carefully cut into bars. Store in the fridge!
