Pumpkin Power Bars

Pumpkin Power Bars

It’s officially fall and we love all things pumpkin! Pumpkin is a type of winter squash, which is one of the October Foods of the Month. Cooking with pumpkin can be tricky if you’re a newbie to this food. Remember to always choose canned or boxed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix for optimal nutrition. Plain pumpkin has a mild, nutty taste that is delicious in both baked goods and savory dishes like risotto. Pumpkin is naturally high in vitamin A and low in sugar, fat and calories.

This recipe for Pumpkin Power Bars is a great idea for a quick breakfast. These bars are incredibly filling thanks to the whole wheat flour, oatmeal, and pumpkin. The chocolate chips give them a tasty surprise that everyone will love. This recipe for Pumpkin Power Bars is the perfect fall treat!
