Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars Recipe

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

yield: 15 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 45 MINUTES

total time: 55 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar (or more for sweeter bars)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9"x13" casserole baking pan with parchment paper.

2

In a large bowl, mix together oats and flaxseed, and set aside.

3

In a separate bowl, mix honey, pumpkin puree, coconut oil, brown sugar, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon.

4

Add wet ingredients to the oatmeal mixture and stir. Add in chocolate chips. Press the mixture into a thick layer in the casserole pan, firmly packing it down and flattening really well with a spatula. You'll want the bars about an inch thick so you won't fill the whole casserole dish with the granola mixture.

5

Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and press down with a spatula again. Bake for another 25 minutes until brown.

6

Let cool for about 2 hours then cut into bars. This recipe will make about 15-18 3-inch sized bars. I like to cut them and then store in a covered container with parchment paper to keep the bars separated, for about 5-7 days. Enjoy!

Looking for a homemade and portable snack this fall?

Try adding pumpkin puree and chocolate chips to a batch of homemade granola bars. It’s a brilliant combination of flavor! They are so yummy, very easy to make, and most importantly – your family will hopefully love them like mine did. In fact, these are definitely kid-approved and would be so great for lunch boxes or after school snacks!

Tips for baking perfect pumpkin chocolate chip granola bars:

  • Here’s the key to making sure these bars don’t fall apart! You have to make them pretty thick and also press them down firmly into a 9×13 casserole dish using a metal spatula. Make sure they are about 3/4 inch – 1 inch thick. Notice I did not use the full length of the pan, more like 3/4 of it. The flaxseed is also important as a binding agent and do help the bars stay together.
  • My kitchen is usually warm enough for my coconut oil to be melted already, but if yours is solid, melt it first.
  • Homemade granola bars can be stores in a covered container for up to 5-7 days.

My kids loved these pumpkin granola bars as a special fall snack!

I enjoyed mine with a warm cup of coffee and oh my gosh – YUMMO! I loved that these were easy to make and called for simple pantry ingredients I usually have on hand.

    Is anyone having trouble finding canned pumpkin at their grocery stores? I went to 3 different stores last weekend and they were all out of canned pumpkin.

    • Megan G

      Mary, yes, I came to say the same thing. Went to 6 stores looking for it and ended up empty handed.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Darn hopefully that changes soon!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Darn! I managed to grab a couple cans at my grocery store after a couple tries. You’re right though stick seems limited.
