Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Ingredients
  

  • 3 1/4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 by 8 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk oats, spices, and salt together. Set aside.
  • 3. In a medium bowl, whisk brown sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, honey, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour over oats and stir well, until all of the oats are moist. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • 4. Evenly press oat mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. The pumpkin keeps the bars moist, so make sure they are golden and set-you don't want them to be under baked. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  • 5. Using a sharp knife, cut into bars. Remove from pan and let cool completely.
