I mean pumpkin spice AND chocolate all in one breakfast bar … what’s not to love?!

Are these Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars?

Everyone’s opinion on healthy is different and I am not a dietician or nutritionist, but in my opinion these pumpkin oat bars are definitely a healthy option.

They are made with delicious and nutritious ingredients like old fashioned oats, real pumpkin, coconut oil, and pure maple syrup. Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars are only lightly sweetened and are a much better-for-you option than most pumpkin baked goods! They’re dairy free, vegan, and refined sugar free too.

Ingredients needed for Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars call for simple, healthy, and wholesome ingredients! All vegan ones too.

  • Pumpkin: Can’t make pumpkin oatmeal bars without pumpkin! You will need 1 cup of real pumpkin puree.
  • Oats: These bars call for 1 cup of old fashioned oats!
  • Flour: A tiny bit of all purpose flour is also used in this recipe. 1/4 cup to be exact!
  • Coconut Oil: Refined coconut oil is needed here to keep things deliciously moist! Make sure to use refined coconut oil, as unrefined or virgin tastes like coconut. Add 1/3 cup melted!
  • Pure Maple Syrup: Pure maple syrup is the main source of sweetness in this recipe. It is a rich & delicious refined sugar free sweetener. You will need cup!
  • Coconut Sugar: This recipe also calls for a bit of coconut sugar, another refined sugar free sweetener. Add 2 tbsp!
  • Dairy Free Chocolate Chips: The use of dairy free chocolate chips in these pumpkin bars helps to keep things vegan! I love these mini semi sweet dairy free chips and use them in all my baking. You’ll need 1/4 cup plus a little extra!
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice & Cinnamon: Pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon are truly the stars of this show! They give these bars that warm fall flavor we all know and love. Add 1 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice.
  • Vanilla Extract: You will also need 1 tsp of vanilla extract in these oatmeal bars!
  • Baking Powder: A touch of baking powder helps bake this recipe to perfection. 1/2 tsp is just the right amount!
  • Salt: Lastly add a pinch, 1/4 tsp, of salt to enhance all the delicious flavors here.

How to best enjoy these oatmeal bars…

These bars are so versatile and can be enjoyed in many different ways! They make for a healthy breakfast, an easy snack, and a delicious dessert all in one.

My personal favorite way to enjoy these oatmeal bars has been cold, straight out of the fridge, in a yogurt bowl. I throw some blueberries, peanut butter, and honey in and it is the perfect morning meal! But these bars are also of course delicious warm … straight out of the oven or heated up in the microwave.

Any way you enjoy them, I know you’ll love!

Storing Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars…

You can store Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of days. However, since these are pretty soft & moist I recommend moving to the refrigerator if storing any longer than that.

I myself LOVE to store these in the fridge the whole time though. They get this deliciously chewy texture and are perfect for me to pop into my morning yogurt bowls.
