  • Gently mix oats, dates, hazelnuts, almonds, raisins, cranberries, pretzels, and chia seeds in a large bowl.

  • Mix water and flax seeds together in a small bowl. Let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix pumpkin puree, bananas, and honey together in a medium bowl. Gently mix into the oat mixture until soft and evenly combined. Spread onto the cookie sheet in an even 1/2-inch layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned but still slightly gooey, 25 to 33 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars.

Enjoyed these a lot. Used a 10x16 pan. Didn't have cranberries so used one cup of currants. Cooked for 33 minutes. Liked the pumpkin but will try it with buttercup squash next time as it is a little sweeter and is my favorite. To bring to a function I would add a little more honey or drizzle some icing as this recipe is not on sweet. I will definitely be making these again. Read More
