These Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars are perfect to kick this fall season off! Yes, I know, it’s not even officially fall yet, but I am counting down the days! 

These breakfast bars are packed with fall flavors!

I mean pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup. Is there anything that screams fall more?

They are full of fall flavors, and great for breakfast.

Some of my other favorite healthy pumpkin breakfast recipes include these Pumpkin Pancakes, these Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Cashew Glaze, and these Vegan Pumpkin Muffins with chocolate chips

However, this is the ultimate fall recipe, and you need it!


Why I love these Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars

Well, to begin with, they are freaking delicious and packed with pumpkin spice, which obviously is the flavor of fall.

Another reason why I love these pumpkin oatmeal bars is that they are basically made of the same ingredients as my usual Healthy Breakfast Oatmeal bowl.

Although, these bars make an even more convenient breakfast compared to prepared overnight oats. Just grab a couple of oatmeal bars on your way out and eat them anywhere.

They are filling, delicious, and mess-free.

Why are these Pumpkin oatmeal Bars Healthy?

Just like my go-to favorite Overnight Oats, these oatmeal bars are made wade with real food ingredients. And therefore they are:

I used gluten-free rolled oats for this recipe. There is no wheat or other flour.

Instead of regular milk, I used oat milk which is only made with gluten-free oats.


So these nut-free pumpkin oatmeal bars are great snacks to pack for your kids’ lunch too!

No eggs, butter, or regular milk is needed in this recipe.

ingredients for pumpkin oatmeal bars

With only six main ingredients and a few optional add-ins, this healthy pumpkin breakfast bar recipe is incredibly easy to make.

All you need is:

  1. Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
  2. Pumpkin Puree (my Homemade Version)
  3. Pumpkin pie Spice (Make it yourself using this recipe)
  4. Maple Syrup
  5. Baking Powder

And a bowl and a spatula, no mixer required. 

If you are trying to be really fancy, and are not avoiding nuts, I also like to add a handful of pecans or walnuts.

Additionally, of course, chocolate chips would be a great addition. Because a little chocolate never hurt anyone.


How to Store these vegan pumpkin oatmeal Bars

Once the pumpkin oatmeal bars have completely cooled off, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can either slice them up or leave them as a whole.

Yes, you can freeze them!

They freeze really well too. Once they are cooled off completely, slice the pumpkin bars into the preferred size and wrap the individual slices in plastic wrap.

You can also place them in an airtight container without wrapping them in plastic. Leave a little room between each slice, so they won’t be hard to break apart when you are ready to enjoy them.

These oatmeal bars can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. 

There you have it! The perfect ready-to-go breakfast or snack that the whole family will enjoy. They are easy to make, good for you, and so delicious!
