Recipe For Pumpkin Oatmeal Coconut Bars

Get Psyched For Autumn With These Pumpkin Coconut Oatmeal Bars

Be warned! This is the kind of recipe that people will be begging you for — these bars are so good, it takes major willpower to stop at just one. But because they're made with healthy ingredients like whole-wheat flour, applesauce, oats, and walnuts, you can go ahead and grab another.

This bar is subtly sweet and has a wonderfully soft, cake-like consistency. For 160 calories per bar, you can feel good devouring two squares for breakfast, since you'll walk away with five grams of fiber and almost eight grams of protein. That can of pureed pumpkin has been waiting for this recipe to come along, so what are you waiting for? Get baking!
