Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

If you guys couldn’t tell, I have hopped on the pumpkin train and i do not know if I will ever come off of it. I had some extra pumpkin leftover and I have been absolutely loving the fall staple, so i thought why not combine it with my other staple flavor, peanut butter and chocolate. And that is the story of how these super easy & super tasty treats were born!

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

I love these bars because of the obvious reason of being filled with peanut buttery, chocolatey, pumpkiny goodness … but also for the fact that they are made with such great ingredients. Don’t get me wrong I love a decadent dessert, but a lot of the times and with a lot of my recipes I go for sweet treats that i know will fuel me properly throughout my days. And these do just that! The only sweetener in here is a little bit of maple syrup, the rest comes from the pumpkin and the chocolate chips. Which I think makes these an excellent choice for an on the go breakfast, a delicious addition to a yogurt bowl, or a perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

Another reason why I love these bars is because they are so dang easy. Literally a 30 minute process from start to finish. I actually had time to whip up a batch in between classes the other day, so they would be perfect if you didn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen! Or would be a great addition to a weekly meal prep.

  • For this recipe, I wasn’t going for a very prominent pumpkin spice flavor so I didn’t use much pumpkin spice.  If that is what your looking for, simply add more pumpkin spice to taste.
