IntroductionFrom the Half Baked Baker From the Half Baked Baker
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup applesauce cup
1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1 1/2 oz walnuts, chopped
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
In a medium bowl, whisk brown sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, and maple syrup until smooth.
Pour over oats and stir well, until all of the oats are moist. Stir in chocolate, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts.
Evenly press oat mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. The pumpkin and applesauce add a lot of moisture to the bars so bake them until they are golden and set or they will be too soft.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Using a sharp knife, cut into bars. Remove from pan and cool completely.
The pumpkin keeps the bars very moist for several days if kept sealed in an airtight container and refrigerated.
