After my Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies became a hit, I decided to try making these Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Bars.  I am so glad I tried it, because these are even better than the original cookie!  They are incredibly moist and make an amazing breakfast.  Ok, so it’s still technically a cookie and probably shouldn’t be the only breakfast I eat.  But I won’t tell if you don’t!

These Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Bars are really easy to make.  They are made with raisins, but you can try adding apples, walnuts, or so much more!  I think I’ve made these three or four times, all coming out so delicious and only lasting a day or two.  I really do need to pull back on eating these…  Did I mention that I eat them all myself.  Yeah, I have a problem.

What makes these bars even better is that these bars are gluten-free, dairy-free, and are low on sugar and fat.  There is zero butter!!  You could also reduce the sugar in half if you want a baked oatmeal breakfast that is a bit healthier than most.  I recommend the baked oatmeal with warm milk and maple syrup.  Did I also mention that this only takes 1 bowl?  The clean-up is super easy, just the way I like it.

Although the Pumpkin Spice season is coming to an end, these are well worth a try.  They could even become a Thanksgiving treat.  Move over Pumpkin Pie because the Pumpkin Spice is here!  Woot woot!
