This oat bar is so quick and easy to prepare, you simply mix all ingredients in a microwave safe plate, spread out and cook for 2-3 minutes in your microwave!
Quick Pumpkin Oat Bars
3/4 cup quick oats
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
I like to sprinkle a teaspoon or two of turbinado sugar on top before microwaving.
Quick Pumpkin Oat Bars can easily be made dairy free and gluten free with a few substitutions.
Swap out the butter for coconut or vegetable oil, chocolate chips for dairy free ones and any gluten free flour (plus 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum) for the whole wheat flour.
