How to make Pumpkin Banana Breakfast Bars
To make these delicious breakfast bars, simply whisk together the mashed bananas, pumpkin puree, honey, vanilla, and spices. Fold in the oats and chocolate chips.
Transfer the mixture to an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper or foil, spread out and smooth out the top. Sprinkle with extra chocolate chips if desired.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until firm and golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool completely in the pan on wire rack before cutting into bars.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
