Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 1 c pumpkin puree (i.e. Libby’s in a can and if you don’t have pumpkin puree in your market, use sweet potato puree either canned or sweet potatoes that you boil/puree yourself)
  • 2 c oats (whole rolled, not quick cook; use certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 c light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (reduce/increase to taste)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (reduce/increase to taste)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: Add raisins, nuts, chocolate/white/peanut butter chips to the mixture. I’d suggest starting with 1/3 to 1/2 c and going from there based on taste preference.
  • Optional frosting ideas (they really don’t need frosting, but I love frosting and wish I would have added some but was too in a hurry to just eat them):


Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir by hand. Spread batter (it will be pretty moist) into a foil-lined and spayed 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan. Bake at 350F for 22-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. The bars may still look underdone, but that’s ok because they will continue to set up as they cool. Allow to cool very well before slicing. Store extras on the countertop, refrigerator, or in the freezer for long term storage.
