Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars Hip2Save

If you’re looking for a great portable snack this Fall, try adding pumpkin and chocolate chips to a batch of homemade granola bars. They are so yummy, very easy to make, and most importantly – kid approved (great for lunch boxes and for after school snacks). I even added some ground flaxseed for additional fiber.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars


4 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup ground Flaxseed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate chips

How to make pumpkin granola bars Hip2Save
Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together oats and flaxseed and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix honey, pumpkin, coconut oil, brown sugar, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Add wet ingredients to the oatmeal and stir. Add in chocolate chips.  Press the mixture into the pan and flatten it really well with a spatula. Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and press down with a spatula again. Bake for another 20-25 minutes until brown. Let cool for at least 2 hours before cutting. Makes about 18-20 bars. I like to cut them and store in a Tupperware container with parchment paper to keep the bars separated.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
