These bars are just so good! Nothing beats pumpkin in my book! They are sweet and salty, crunchy and gooey, all at the same time. These are a great source of protein, travel well, and stay fresh for a week (when properly stored). I know you will love them!
1/4 cup whole almonds
1/2 cup salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds with no shell)
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave syrup
1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave syrup for top
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in wet ingredients. Firmly press mixture onto a heavily greased baking sheet into a square shape.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon of maple syrup on top of the bars. Cool completely and cut into bars. This mix makes approximately six 1″ x 5″ bars, that are about 3/4″ thick.
