One of the reasons I love these pumpkin oatmeal breakfast bars is because they are basically  made of the same ingredients in my usual overnight oatmeal bowls.

Packed with Fall Flavors

Pumpkin Puree, Pumpkin Spice and Maple Syrup. What screams fall more? This is the ultimate fall recipe you need.

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. Because, a little chocolate never hurt anyone.

Why are these Pumpkin Breakfast Bars Healthy

Just like my go-to favorite overnight oats (Recipe Here), these pumpkin oatmeal breakfast bars are made wade with minimal ingredients, healthy and clean ingredients.

1. Gluten Free

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

2. Dairy free

Instead of regular milk, I used oat milk which is only made with gluten free oats. It is a great source of vitamin A & D and our daily fiber.

3. Nut Free

I am usually a huge fan of nuts, as you may already know. But recently I went to a natural Product Expo to check out all the new and hot products coming to market (You may have already seen my stories on Instagram), and realized that a lot of schools now have less tolerance for nuts due to common allergies. Therefore, oats are a great nutritious alternative!

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

4. Vegan friendly

 

How to Store Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars

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

Freezer: Yes, you can freeze them! They freeze really well too. Once they are cooled off completely. Slice the pumpkin bars into preferred size and wrap the slice in a plastic wrap. There you have it! The perfect ready-to-go breakfast or snack on the go.

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 healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are a the best gluten free breakfast or snack recipe that’s packed with fall flavors. They are easy, good for you, and delicious – the perfect fall recipe to prep up for the whole family!

  2. You can make your own oat flour by blending the rolled oats in a high speed blender.
  3. If you prefer sweeter, add 1 - 2 extra tablespoon of coconut sugar.

    For the pumpkin spice oatmeal bars – there looks to be a drizzling of sauce on the sauce although from what I see, nothing is mentioned in the recipe about this?

      Hi Sarah,

      It is just smooth nut butter. You can use peanut butter, almond butter or any kind you life if you are okay with consuming nuts. 🙂

    What is the topping you put on at the end of the video? It’s in the pictures too. It looks a little like a peanut butter drizzle but I’m thinking it’s probably not. 🙂

      It is! You can use any drizzly nut or seed butter 🙂 Easy and so delicious.

    Not a huge fan of coconut anything, so would I be able to just use regular old cane sugar instead?

      You can certainly do that!Use equal amount for replacement. Enjoy 🙂

    I only have a 8×8 pan. Should I skip that and just make them into muffins? I just want to make sure it cooks through. Thank you!

      Hi Erica,

      Yes you can make them into Muffins which will take a bit shorter to cook. But you can also use 8×8 pan. It won’t be as thick because 8×8 is bigger than 9×5.

    I am trying the pumpkin oatmeal bars today, and in the video you drizzle some kind of delicious looking sauce on top. Can you post what that is?

      Hi Katelyn,

      It’s nut butter. You can use any kind you like. I used peanut butter in this video. I also like to drizzle almond butter. 🙂

      Hi Nancy,

      Thank you for pointing it out. I just fixed it. It will be 2 cups oats. If you don’t have oat flour, you can replace it with more oats. Hope it helps to clarify 🙂
