Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, sharing my final fall recipe of the season. These Pumpkin Granola Bars are super easy, which is a necessity for any baking recipe that I make!

Have you eaten a lot of delicious pumpkin treats yet this fall? Pumpkin has a few more weeks to shine before it is time for peppermint to take over! I love pumpkin in all forms, but I usually stick to the typical desserts. I don’t know why I never thought to make a bar like this before! It makes it acceptable to eat pumpkin at all times of the day!

Pumpkin Filling

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
