Pumpkin Quinoa Oat Bars

Hi, dear friends! I'm Kelly and I blog over at Eyes On The Source on all things Home, Health and Kids! I am so pleased to meet and be with you today, thank you Danielle for allowing me to share with you all! I recently moved from Illinois to Florida and it does not feel like fall here even a little bit...but pumpkins are starting to show up in the stores so it must be time for some tasty pumpkin treats! And if we can make them healthy ones, well that's even better! 

Pumpkin Quinoa Oat Bars

Pumpkin Quinoa Oat Bars  

1 1/2 Cup Oatmeal  
1 Cup Quinoa  
1 cup Walnuts 
 Apple Pie Spice (Cinnamon, All-Spice, Nutmeg) to-taste  
1 large Egg  
3/4 Cup Pure Pumpkin (canned)  
1/3 Cup Honey  
1 tsp Vanilla extract  
1/2 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease and 8x8 pan with coconut oil. Pour Oatmeal, Quinoa, Walnuts and spices into a blender or food processor and pulse until well blended and chopped.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until bars begin to brown. Let cool a bit before cutting.

 I think they taste best served warm, mmmm! The chocolate chips are for my hubby! However, if you prefer an even healthier version with no chocolate chips, add other nuts, seeds or some dried fruit instead. And if you prefer egg free recipes, add a little more pumpkin or 1/4 cup of applesauce instead of the egg. What is YOUR favorite Fall food?
