* two tomatoes, chopped (optional)

I made these bars on a whim while craving a pumpkin-y granola bar that would keep me full (with lots of fiber and protein). Feel free to play with the spices and cut down on the sugar as you see fit! The soy nuts could easily be exchanged for any nut (something like pecans would probably taste a bit more fall-like).
Also feel free to cut them up into smaller servings! I wanted mine to serve as breakfast or a mini-meal so I made them slightly bigger.
I had trouble getting the crust to stay together when I added the bar mixture. Any suggestions on how to alter the recipe to fix this are more than welcome! Enjoy!
