Ingredients

Units Scale

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp allspice

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup smooth almond butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Add-Ins


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  3. Measure 1/2 cup solid coconut oil. Add the oil to a bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds or until completely melted. Set aside to cool. 
  4. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Whisk together. 
  5. In a separate large bowl, combine all wet ingredients. Whisk together until thoroughly mixed.
  6. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix just until a cookie dough consistency is formed. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. 
  7. Spread the batter into the pan.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes. 
  9. Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing and serving. 

Notes

  • Be delicate with these bars. They are extra gooey and will break apart if you do not let them cool completely before serving. 
  • You can substitute 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice to replace the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice.
