Chewy Pumpkin Oatmeal Treats

chewy pumpkin oatmeal treats

 

This is one of my great kitchen flops. I was supposed to be making granola bars. But instead of them turning out like the granola bars we’re used to, they turned into these chewy, fall apart treats. But they are delicious, so I’m sharing them with you anyways!

Ingredients
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¾ cup pumpkin
  • ½ brown sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 4 cups quick cook oats
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • dash of salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix honey, pumpkin, sugar, butter, vanilla together.
  3. Pour in oats and rice cereal and mix well.
  4. Pour mixture into a buttered pan and press down so that it's even.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Even thought it's soft and will crumble apart a little, I waited for it to cool and then cut it into bars to make it easier to serve. I stored it in an air tight container. Delicious with a glass of cold milk!

    Sounds really good and has to be better for the little ones. My granddaughter loves the fruity snacks from Welches. I just bet she would love this too. I will have to give it a try next time she is coming or when she is here so she can help. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

    i’m always terrified of recipe flops b/c i’m poor and don’t have money to waste on food if i mess it up… so i make the same stuff over and over and if i dare to try new things, it has to have plenty of rave reviews and i follow the recipe to the tee…
    looks like your flop fared pretty well! sounds delicious – my little guy loves pumpkin stuff (which is surprising because he hates fruit) – will add this into my recipe list to try when i’m feeling daring 🙂
    thanks for sharing!
