These chewy, pumpkin spiced oatmeal cookie bars will be your new favourite fall snack! They’re amazingly easy to make and taste so delicious.



  • 11/2 cups oats
  • 1¼ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup vegan margarine or butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips


  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add pumpkin puree and vanilla and stir to combine.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt until combined.

  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir to form a dough. Add 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and stir to combine.

  5. Press into a square baking pan. Bake 22-24 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow to almost completely cool before topping with the chocolate.

  6. Meanwhile, in a small pot on the stove melt the remaining chocolate chips with 1 tsp coconut oil. Once the bars are mostly cool, drizzle the chocolate overtop. Sprinkle on some sea salt and the almonds, if using. Slice and serve!


I specified to wait until the bars were mostly cool before drizzling on the chocolate. However, if you wish to eat them hot out of the oven with melted chocolate running all over the place, be my guest. I may or may not have done that myself once or twice 😉
