These pumpkin chocolate chip oat bars have chunks of chocolate and warm spices! The perfect fall time treat which is free of gluten, dairy, eggs, and refined sugar!
I’m one of those people who eat pumpkin year round. Pumpkin pie in March? Yes, please. Pumpkin pancakes in June? Don’t mind if I do. I don’t need a calendar to tell me it’s okay to enjoy certain flavors. Pshhh, I’ll eat what I want, when I want, thank you very much. Can you tell I have a bit of a rebellious spirit?? 😜
Well, since I just love pumpkin so much, you’d better believe we’re indulging even more now that pumpkin is in abundance…and on sale too!
I like just about any pumpkin treat, whether it be in the form of pie, cake, cookies, bars, or ice cream. My favorite pumpkin flavor combo has always been pumpkin and cream cheese, but lately I’ve been enjoying pumpkin with chocolate! I mean, what’s not to love? It’s two amazing flavors combined into one!
If you like chocolate chip cookies, you’re going to LOVE these bars! They taste very similar, but get extra flavor and moisture from the pumpkin puree and a subtle kick from the warm spices. Oh, and they’re dairy, egg, gluten, and refined sugar free, plus they’re just made with oats so they’re, like, technically a breakfast food. You’re welcome. 😉
