Pumpkin Oat Squares

Pumpkin Oat Squares

Last week, a friend of mine shared with me that she recently made these delicious banana oatmeal chocolate chip squares and loved them.  I agree; they are a great snack and just sweet enough to be dessert. 

I wanted to make them, but needed to make them more fit for fall.  So, I subbed the banana out and replaced it with pumpkin.  Everything is better with pumpkin! These are my new favorite.  I hope they will be yours!
