A Healthy Fall Snack

It’s finally that time of year when we get to add pumpkin spice to all the things! I know that technically you can eat pumpkin all year round, thanks to the magic of canned foods, but pumpkin just screams fall to me. When it’s cold outside and the leaves are falling, I just want to stuff my face with every pumpkin and apple treat I can find! 🙂

These delicious and healthy pumpkin granola bars are the perfect way to indulge my sweet tooth without throwing nutrition out the window completely.

They’re so tasty, and good for you too!

How to Make Pumpkin Granola Bars

The granola bars take just a few minutes to mix together, and they’re so easy that the kids can help too!

Mix Dry Ingredients – In a medium bowl, mix together oats, pumpkin pie spice, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, brown sugar, and salt.

Stir Wet Ingredients & Combine – In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.

Bake – Spread the mixture into a 9×9 baking dish lined with parchment paper, and pat into an even layer. Bake for about 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Cool & Serve – Once the pumpkin granola bars have cook, allow them to cool completely.  Once cooled, cut them into bars and serve.
