Pumpkin Coconut Granola Bars

Not to mention chocolate and seeds! These are delicious, healthy, full of energy and antioxidants. I keep all of the below ingredients at all times, basically, I recommend doing the same! You could experiment with the seeds/mix ins, but this one is perfect in my opinion.

Blend/food process:
1/2 can pumpkin
1tsp vanilla
1tsp cinnamon
Handful of soaked dates (I used medjool, a large handful
1 banana (small, ripe)

Mix in a bowl with all of the following:
-1tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1.25 cup unsweet coconut (don’t want added sugar)
-1 cup gluten free whole oats
– 1/2 cup chia seeds
-1/4 cup hemp seeds
-1/2 cup ground flaxmeal
-1/4 cup sunflower seeds
-1/2 cup pumpkin seeds or pepitas
-1/3 85% dark chocolate bar, chopped

Turn it greased 9x11pan (mine is a little bigger I think)
Bake at 375 for 20-25 min until edges are crispy and brown. Let cool, chop into bars, store refrigerated, be energized!
