IMG_5049-web-square

Ingredients

  • 2.5c oat flour (to create your own, take Steele cut oats, pop them into a nutri bullet or food processor and milk until it becomes flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Dash of ground cinnamon (I like to really bring out the Fall flavors)
  • 1/4 c dark chocolate chips
  • 1 c canned pumpkin purée
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 c coconut sugar
  • 1 tbs coconut oil (melted)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 (I like to use convection so the bars bake throughout). Prep glass baking dish or baking pan with a little coconut oil cooking spray).
  2. In a large bowl, Mix all dry ingredients. (Oat flour —> pumpkin pie spice).
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients, stir until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir until evenly combined. Then fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour everything into glass baking dish, use a spatula to even out.
  6. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. (18 was perfect for my oven).
  7. Let cool then cut into squares! I love to pair these with a cup of coffee or ice cold unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
