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 🙂

      1. Hi, I did sub almond flour for the oat flour and they came out great. I did bake them a bit longer thinking between the pumpkin and almond flour they wouldn’t be as bar like as I like them. Delicious and so easy to make.

  1. Is the peanut butter flavor in the bars very strong? Not a huge fan but don’t mind if it’s faint! If not, could I substitute it with another nut butter?

  2. Your no bake freezer cookies are currently in my freezer right now, but I’ll be making these next for dessert! Love all your desserts!! I’ve made many 🙂

  3. Do you cook the oatmeal and then combine it with the oat flour baking powder etc? Or is it just raw rolled oats that you add to the oat flour? Thanks!!!!
