These baked oat bars are perfect for the fall season and make a hearty, healthy breakfast or treat!
I absolutely adore oats! They’re incredibly versatile and need very little ingredients added to them in order to make a hearty and healthy breakfast or snack. Baked oat bars are one of my favorite things to make because usually, I throw together a variable of 4-6 ingredients that I have laying around my kitchen and bake them up for 20 minutes for a nutrish and satisfying treat!
For the fall season, I changed things up a bit and made pumpkin the star ingredient!
The great thing about these bars (and most of my recipes) is that you can add ingredients or change them up. Feel free to use different nuts or add pepitas or dates — whatever floats your boat!
Also, I will warn you, I don’t overly sweeten my recipes so you may want to add more maple syrup or perhaps brown or coconut sugar. A little vanilla or maple extract might also sweeten the deal without adding sugar.
Makes 4 bars or 8 squares (if using mini loaf pans)
