Pumpkin Pie Bars
old fashioned oats
dates, packed (about 22 dates)
mini chocolate chips
Add oats to blender. Blend on medium low until a flour is formed, about 30-60 seconds. You may have to tap the sides to get the oats down into the blades. Dump the oat flour out into a bowl.
Heat the milk until steaming. Add dates and hot milk to blender. Blend on medium until the dates are blended in with the milk.
Add pumpkin and eggs to blender. Blend on high until incorporated.
Add oat flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder to blender. Blend until incorporated.
Pour batter into a greased 8x8 pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips across the top. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
These are delicious warm or chilled, but they are definitely easier to cut cold.
