It’s that time of year when you’re seeing pumpkin things and flavors everywhere.
How do you feel about a new pumpkin bars recipe? I hope excited because today I’m sharing these fun healthy pumpkin bars with you.
I know I know…there’s no shortage of pumpkin recipes out there but you’ll want these vegan pumpkin blondies on your “must make” list.
These vegan gluten free pumpkin blondies are a twist on my popular vegan protein bars. Just make sure to use certified gluten free oats if you need these to be gluten free.
The absolute best part about these vegan pumpkin bars is you can lick the spoons and eat the batter as you go. That was my favorite thing to do when I was little.
My mom would always offer up the chocolate chip cookie dough batter when she was making her beloved homemade chocolate chip cookies. No joke – her cookies would bring ALL of our friends over. She’d make them before and after sporting events.
Even today, my friends flock to the opportunity to come over for “Nance’s chocolate chip cookies.”
Back then, I had no idea raw eggs weren’t safe, and fortunately, had no bad experiences with that.
But with these healthy pumpkin oatmeal bars recipe, you don’t even have to worry. Safe for pregnancy, safe for kids, safe for anyone because no raw eggs!
These healthy pumpkin bars make for great snacks for breastfeeding hunger.
Just a few ingredients you probably already have on hand, honestly! We’re staying low maintenance with these vegan pumpkin bars.
If you’ve never put chickpeas in bars before, they are the perfect vehicle for an ooey gooey, chewy bar. Plus, a great way to add extra fiber and protein to the batter, so why not?
The oats add a little structure, as well as protein and complex carbohydrates, which I appreciate for sustenance and satisfaction.
I love these after a run with another layer of peanut butter, or mixed in a yogurt bowl.
I also think they go great mixed in with ice cream or sprinkled on top of oatmeal. Or, I like them as a chewy side to my favorite homemade trail mix.
Pumpkin bars are also a great meal prep snack recipe. We like to whip up a bunch in the beginning of the week, though I recommend doubling the recipe because these won’t last long.
Usually when I can’t decide between pumpkin bars and healthy peanut butter banana brownies, I have one of each.
I like just transferring from ninja to baking pan, skip the process of needing to clean a bowl!
Add the chocolate chips last (you can, of course, lave them off if you’d like though I don’t know why you’d want to).
Absolutely! One great thing about these pumpkin recipes for toddlers is that they have 8 grams of protein each. Plus, fiber and antioxidants from the pumpkin. Bars are a great way to serve pumpkin for babies and toddlers.
If you are looking for toddler pumpkin recipes, I would just leave out most of the maple syrup and chocolate chips to reduce the sugar content.
Also, if you do have a baby under one, stay clear of the honey.
