Yield 4 - 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • scant 1/2 tsp salt
  • scant 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice OR additional cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp uncut stevia OR 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/3 cup pureed pumpkin (320g)
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice (scale back to 1/3 cup if using maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter, or 2 tbsp oil or milk of choice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional 1/2 cup chocolate chips, plus more for the top if desired

Instructions

  • Grease an 8x8 square pan. Set aside. Preheat oven to 380F. In a large mixing bowl, stir together all dry ingredients, then add all remaining ingredients. Smooth evenly into the prepared pan, sprinkle chips on top if desired, and press down with a spoon. Bake 24 minutes, then let sit in a closed oven 20 minutes with the heat turned off. Top with syrup, or coconut butter, or the healthy cream cheese frosting linked earlier in the post. Or you can eat it plain. I topped mine with almond butter, and they’re REALLY good this way! You could also use 1/4 cup almond butter in place of the oil, as mentioned in the ingredients, which adds delicious depth of flavor.
