Extra Helpful Tips For This Recipe

  • To avoid a common mistake in pumpkin recipes, make sure you are using pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling. 
  • Oat flour – you can either make it or purchase it. Making it is luckily very simple. Add old-fashion rolled oats to a high-powered blender or food processor, then chop/blend until consistency is very fine like flour. Use gluten-free oats if needed. 
  • For chocolate you can either use mini chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips, or chocolate chunks. I used a mixture of all three. 
  • How to store pumpkin bars: to keep bars fresh, store in a glass/plastic sealed container at room temperature or in refrigerator for 3 to 7 days.
