What I Ate Wednesday: Easy as Pie!

So here we are, another What I Ate Wednesday!

And we have a delicious snack for you…

Pumpkin Pie-Chocolate Granola Bars!

To us, Fall = pumpkin, and Halloween = Chocolate.

Need we say more?

For this recipe, we basically took our favourite lentil granola bar recipe and substituted pumpkin puree for the lentils, added a bunch of spices and bad-boom bada-bing we have a winner!

Easy as [pumpkin] pie!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, everybody!

Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Granola Bars

Prep time: 5 min
Bake time: 30 min
Makes: 8 bars

Ingredients:

1 c. pumpkin puree
1.5 cups rolled oats
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 c. ground flax seed
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. honey
1 tbsp coconut oil (or other oil)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. walnut pieces

1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 tbsp coconut oil

Directions:

In a medium-sized bowl, mix all dry ingredients.  Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the chocolate and 1/2 tbsp coconut oil) and stir well.

Spoon batter into a lined 8×8 inch pan and bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

To make the chocolate drizzle, place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for about 40-50 seconds, stirring every 20 seconds, or until melted.

Once the granola bars have cooled, drizzle the chocolate mixture over the top and allow to cool.

Cut into eight bars and place in the refrigerator if not being used right away.

      • Haha but for what I ate Wednesday we usually show more of a food diary versus just a recipe. I have some info and examples here [http://www.peasandcrayons.com/p/what-i-ate-wednesday.html] — Hope that helps a little!

        I need to stop coming back to this recipe though b/c im going to totally drool all over my keyboard — it looks great!

      • Thanks! 🙂 And yes, we know that’s the norm, but we didn’t have much to show in the way of pictures, but wanted to join the party anyways 🙂
