IS THIS PUMPKIN OATMEAL BAR GLUTEN FREE?

Yes, simply sub the normal rolled oats with gluten free oats.  and use a. gluten free oat flour ,and gluten free flaxseed.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE OAT FLOUR?

If you don’t have oat flour, you can replace the oat flour with 1/3 cup gluten-free oats. Bake an additional 5 – 10 minutes. It will be a little on the denser side. But still chewy and yummy!

Or you can make your own oat flour simply by adding your gluten free rolled oats to a blender and blending .

HOW TO EAT YOUR PUMPKIN OATMEAL BARS?

First of all these Pumpkin bars are perfect to make fro Thanksgiving breakfast, and also an amazing autumn snack you can make yourself at home using pumpkin puree which you can find available during the pumpkin season.

It is a perfect snack to satisfy your dessert cravings, yummy and yet healthy, gluten free and vegan.

Currently  I am making them in this period adding two scoop of  protein powder to it , which make them even healthier!

SOME TIPS FROM YASMIN

Remove the added sugar. You can omit the maple syrup if you prefer to have no added sugar. You can also swap it for an extra banana, few medjool dates for naturally sweetness!

Make it high protein! You can easily make this high protein by adding in some vegan protein powder. Add in two scoop of your favorite vegan protein powder along with a third cup of extra plant milk. The protein powder will absorb some of the liquid so it’s important to add in some extra!

Make a quinoa breakfast bars! You can switch this breakfast bake up and add in some quinoa as well! Try a mixture of half quinoa and half oatmeal.

Double the recipe! This bake makes about 9 small serves, but it you have a bigger appetite double the recipe! I can eat half of this easily! So if you’re like me and like having big breakfasts, I would double it!

Use canned puree  it is much quicker if you use canned puree if you don’t have pumpkin in season or not enough time to make the pumpkin puree yourself.

STORING YOUR PUMPKIN OATMEAL BREAKFAST BARS

You can store your pumpkin oatmeal breakfast bars   in the fridge for up to 5 days! Try transferring it into separate containers so your breakfast is pre-prepped for you! You can eat your bake cold, heat it up in the microwave or oven, or take it with you on the go!

👉Store these in the freezer for months so you always have yummy dessert on hand!!
