Pumpkin Spice Granola Bar Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars
These bars are perfect for breakfast or for a snack! They are healthy & delicious. This recipe makes chewy granola bars.
  • 2 cups Oats
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Wheat Germ
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup Canola Oil
  • 1 Egg (beaten)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Next, mix in all of the wet ingredients. Make sure all of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

Spread the mixture in a greased 9x9 pan. I prefer using stoneware for this recipe. Pat with a spatula until the mixture is evenly distributed and flat. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the edges start to brown.

After you remove from the oven, allow them to cool for 5 minutes then turn the pan upside down and remove in one big piece. This is when the stoneware pan really makes a difference, mine come out so easy! Cut into bars and allow to cool completely. Store in an air tight container. The granola bars should keep for about a week or they can be frozen for up to 6 months.

  1. Can't wait to try this recipe! Hey, we have the same stove :) Thanks for sharing.

  2. I would like to try these but I don't have Wheat germ and honestly I really don't know what that is. Will this recipe work without it or is that a must??? Sorry if this question seems silly...;)

  3. That is not a silly question. You can make these without the wheat germ. Just add an extra 1/4 cup flour & 1/4 cup oats.
