1 1/2 cups
quick cooking oats
packed dark brown sugar
pumpkin pie spice
large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups
These had good flavor but they are much more of a baked oatmeal than a pumpkin bar. The texture is chewy and not cakey at all because there is no flour. Don't expect a nice light cakey bar from this recipe. For what it is...a baked oatmeal type bar, it is quite good and a nice healthy option for a snack or quick on the go breakfast.
Ok as a healthy snack, but didn't love the consistency or flavour of these. Had to re-read the recipe several times to ensure I didn't miss anything as mine didn't turn out like others said. were flat and not 'chewy'. I switched half and half to soy milk and added a little oil to compensate. The grated orange zest I added boosted the flavour, otherwise I think they would have been quite bland for my tastes.
I made these pumpkin bars today. They are a very good snack and much healthier than other recipes. I substituted milk for half and half and added 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. They turned out great.
I made these today because I wanted a healthier version that I could make with the ingredients I had on hand. I followed the recipe, except sub'd almond milk for half & half. I frosted them with a neufchatel cheese frosting (like cream cheese) and sprinkled some chopped ginger on top. They turned out sooo good. Very moist, and not too sweet, just how I like my desserts!
