Recipe: Oatmeal Pumpkin Breakfast Bar

Oatmeal pumpkin breakfast bars – these are easy to make and then you’ve got breakfast for the week! They are healthy, full of substance, and taste great.

Just to note – these are a healthy oatmeal pumpkin breakfast bar, no sugar, so they’re not sweet at all. More hearty and healthy.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of quick oats
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of nutmeg and all spice
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 500g of greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup of sliced almonds

Get ready to bake up some deliciousness. First, gather your ingredients. The greek yogurt and pumpkin are so good in this recipe. If you’re looking for something a bit sweeter, you could use sweetened almond milk, yogurt with sugar or even coconut that’s sweet. On this recipe, I stayed away from all of that – you can see the greek yogurt has only 3g of sugar per 3/4 of a cup.

In a second bowl, mix the next 4 ingredients (the milk, egg, greek yogurt, and the pumpkin) and combine well. Then, pour in the first bowl of dry ingredients. Mix. Gently stir in the coconut and the almonds. Pour into a 9×13 pan that has been lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Take out and stir. Bake another 20.

    Hi Leah,

    I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy them. They are a healthy breakfast bar and the recipe is accurate, so no sugar. If you wanted, you could use sweetened almond milk, or coconut. I did update the recipe so it’s clear they’re not sweet, yet a healthy and balanced option for breakfast.

    Take care!

    Is there supposed to be sugar or another sweetener in this? I followed the recipe as posted and it tastes pretty bad.
