Ingredients
  • 1½ C whole wheat or white whole wheat flour
  • ¾ C quick oats
  • ¼ C flaxseed**
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ C milk of your choice
  • ½ C pumpkin puree
  • ¼ C honey
  • ¼ C maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ C dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oats, flour, flaxseed, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, honey, maple syrup, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Spread batter into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips, if desired. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If you want a drier texture to the bars, you may want to bake for another 5 minutes.

  6. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Notes
**You can use an additional ¼ cup whole wheat flour in place of the ground flaxseed.
