Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

Ready for another pumpkin recipe?!

These pumpkin chocolate chip oat bars are not only a delicious way to satisfy your pumpkin spice sweet tooth, they’re healthy enough to be eaten for breakfast!

I whipped these babies up in less than 30 minutes, using ingredients that I always have in my pantry. They are sweet, chewy, and guilt free! Enjoy them for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even dessert. I calculated these to come in at less than 65 calories per bar, so you could even eat 2 without feeling like you needed to get in some extra miles on the treadmill. And the subtle pumpkin flavor is perfect for fall!

Any other time of the year, you could easily substitute mashed banana for the pumpkin puree and get equally as tasty results!
