Been having a craving for some pumpkin, random time of year, but after being disappointed by the pumpkin spice Clif Bar energy bars (lacking pumpkin flavor) I've been trying to search out a easy to make pumpkin energy bar recipe - using preferably low amounts of butter and more influence from oats. My teammate and I have come up with an awesome energy bar recipe which is basically:
3 cups rolled oats
1 can sweetened condenced milk,
1 cup chopped nuts/chocolate/dried fruits
1 cup coconut
we press it into a baking pan and voila wicked energy bars. Basically I'm hoping someone can help me adapt this into a pumpkin recipe using pumpkin puree, instead of the coconut....
I was thinking about swapping the milk and coconut for pumpkin puree and eggs, but think it will be way to wet. Any suggestions?
