Pumpkin Granola Bars

October 26, 2010

I’ve been a bit obsessed with pumpkin flavors for the past few weeks and am continuously looking for pumpkin recipes. A days ago I whipped up some homemade pumpkin granola bars. Um, whoa. So good. They are a bit dense and chewy and totally perfect for breakfast or a snack.

I adapted the recipe a bit from one found here. I posted my version below as well.

6 1/4 cups quick oats
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of  salt
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 individual serving containers of vanilla pudding
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk oats, spices, and salt together. Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk brown sugar, pumpkin, pudding, honey, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour over oats and stir well. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Evenly press oat mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. The pumpkin keeps the bars moist, so make sure they are golden and set-you don’t want them to be under baked. Remove from oven and let cool.

    On the Food Network you would get an A+ for plating in your pic with the sun beams coming out of your granola bar!

    I just put mine in the oven! I’ll let you know how they turn out… based on the amount of dough I tried, I’m pretty confident in how they’ll taste…
