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!
