they’re not too sweet and only have good, healthy ingredients. there’s no white flour, white sugar, butter, oil or eggs.

pure, tasty energy.

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 teaspoons egg replacer and 3 tablespoons water (or one egg, if you want)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup molasses
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 and 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries

mix together the pumpkin, the egg replacer, vanilla and molasses in one bowl, and the rest of the ingredients in another.

stir together to combine.

press mixture evenly but gently into an 8×8 glass baking dish lined with parchment paper. leave some parchment hanging over the edges so you can use it to pull the squares out.

bake at 350 until they start looking a little dry on top and feeling a little firm in the center – about 20 minutes. don’t overcook.

let cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pan and cut into squares.
