simple and easy instructions:

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl this includes oats, coconut flout, and spices (I added a touch more cinnamon, but that’s because I LOVE cinnamon).

2. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl, starting with the banana first (so you can mash into a sweet gooey consistency without the pumpkin getting in the way).

Don’t forget the pumpkin and the vanilla!

3. Combine the wet and dry. Then and add chocolate chips, I will leave the amount of chocolate chips to your discretion.

4. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until edges start pulling away from the pan.

Enjoy these lusciously moist and super healthy pumpkin bars! I will give a fair warning, these are more like baked oatmeal then a dessertish bar, so don’t have the wrong expectation when you make these. But they do make a great portable breakfast or lighter but still satisfying dessert.
