Gluten free pumpkin bars bursting with pumpkin spice goodness. Easy to customize pumpkin oatmeal bars that are vegan.
Is it finally getting brisk where you live? Are the leaves turning different shades of red, orange and brown? Have you just dusted off your favorite fall boots and unearthed the cute and chunky knit-scarf your mom made you last year?
If you have, then fall is finally here (and so are the pumpkin oatmeal bars)! There’s just something so cozy, warm and comforting about fall. It’s like a nice big bear hug from your favorite person… but in the form of thick sweaters and warm apple crisps.
When I was a kid, my favorite part of fall (besides all the maple pecan granola and pumpkin coffee cake, of course) was knowing that breakfasts were gonna start becoming really tasty. If us kids were good, my mom would make sure we had an extra special treat for breakfast. Sometimes that extra special treat was pumpkin bread, sometimes it was our favorite maple pecan pumpkin muffins, and sometimes it was going out for breakfast.
So this year, I’m sharing something kinda cozy, kinda yummy, and definitely extra special to help you usher in the fall vibes: gluten free pumpkin oatmeal bars! Are you ready to get your bake on? Let’s do it!
How to Make Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars
Learn how to make pumpkin oatmeal bars the easy way: with just a few steps and the simplest vegan gluten free ingredients.
Before you start making the pumpkin oatmeal bars, make sure to preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
Whisk the Wet Ingredients
Add all of your wet ingredients into a large mixing bowl and whisk together until well incorporated.
Whisk the Dry Ingredients
Then, add all of the dry ingredients to the same mixing bowl. Yep, this is a 1-bowl recipe! Whisk until the wet and dry are combined, then fold in your favorite add-ins.
Now transfer your pumpkin bar batter into the pan you prepared earlier. Smooth it all out and add a few add-ins on top to make it pretty.
Bake, Cool & Enjoy!
Bake for about 25 minutes. Then, cool, slice and enjoy the best gluten free pumpkin bars ever!
Delicious pumpkin oatmeal bars that are easy to make and wonderfully vegan + gluten free.
Storing and Freezing these Gluten Free Pumpkin Bars
After cooling your vegan pumpkin oatmeal bars completely, store pumpkin bars in an airtight container at room temperature for about 1 week. I like the bars best on the first 2 days.
To freeze your pumpkin bars, simply place them in a freezer-friendly container and tuck ‘em in the freezer for about 1 month. Make sure to keep your pumpkin bars away from any savory foods that might taint the aroma of your delicious bars.
