Next up, use the food processor to turn the wheat free oats into wheat free oat flour – just keep pulsing until it’s a find powder.

In one bowl mix all the dry (the first 7 ingredients) and in another mix all the wet (the next 4) and set the chocolate chips aside.

In the mixer, blend all the wet ingredients. Slowly add in the dry and mix well. Then, in a parchment paper lined 8×8 pan, press in the pumpkin protein batter. Press evenly into all the corners. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Once the pumpkin bars are done cooking, time to make the dark chocolate top.

In a microwaveable safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and melt them on 1/2 power in the microwave.
