Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars made with gluten-free and simple ingredients! 

YOU GUYS! These healthy pumpkin oatmeal bars are EVERYTHING!

I had zero intention of adding this recipe to the blog. But then I get all crazy and started swooning over these Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Oatmeal Bars and had to share this recipe.

I wanted to use up leftover pumpkin I was using for my Paleo Pecan Crumble Pumpkin Loaf and remember those insanely good Vegan Chocolate PB Oatmeal Bars I made awhile back. This recipe is so easy to modify and next think you know, these pumpkin bars are born!

So I am pretty much a sucker for anything pumpkin and chocolatey and to be honest, there is nothing more comforting than a cozy oatmeal bar when I am freezing my tush off and want a warm chocolatey snack of sorts.

What I absolutely love about these bars is that there is very little added sugar. I use just 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to sweeten the bars. But if you want to make them a little sweeter, just add an extra couple of tablespoons of maple syrup and use sweetened chocolate chips.

These bars are so dreamy served warmed up and with a little yogurt on the side. Or they are even delicious as is. I have a feeling these will be a hit for Thanksgiving morning for breakfast, which is why I wanted to share with you ASAP!

I cannot wait to hear what you think. Don’t forget to tag me on instagram so I can see them too 🙂
