269. Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Squares [vegan]

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Squares | Vegan | Ann Ning Learning How

I love oatmeal but I haven’t eaten it in a Very Long Time.  I have found alternative hot cereals like Paleo Porridge, and I have tried bulking up some of my grain free treats with coconut, instead – e.g. I ❤ PT Almond Butter Blondie Pie.  But since I am a true oatmeal devotee, I can’t say that the effect is the same.  I enjoy my grain free alternatives in their own right, but sometimes I just need an oatmeal cookie.

This is one of those times.

And since it’s Autumn, I went all out with the leftover pumpkin puree and baked up a batch of these squares.  I then divided them up individually, wrapped them in wax paper, and froze them so I wouldn’t eat them all at once.  Mommy does this for me and my banana bread.  Since I’m off of toast presently I am always intent on supplying myself with suitable breakfast breads.  And yes, I consider these oatmeal bars to be okay for breakfast – I used  less maple syrup than the amount I’m recommending below so my batch isn’t very sweet.  But who am I kidding?  Even if they were I’d still eat them for breakfast…and throughout the day, actually.
