    Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars from The Lemon Bowl

    I love snacks, pumpkin, and chocolate so it is no surprise I found a way to combine them all into one delicious bite. After a recent trip to a big box store looking for snacks, I made the mistake of reading the ingredient labels and couldn’t find a single one without corn syrup, modified food starch or a million other bizarre words I couldn’t pronounce. :)

    Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars 3 - The Lemon Bowl

    My husband packs a lunch for work every day and my two year old is hungry around the clock so I love having a healthy, homemade sweet treat around the house that is ready to go when they need it. The little creature growing inside of me is also hungry all the time so I like stashing these in my car or diaper bag so that I don’t have to rely on over priced store bought snacks or the $3.00 Luna Bar I recently purchased at my gym after a post-workout dizzy spell. (Whoops!)

    1. I plan to make your quinoa chocolate chip granola bars or the pumpkin chocolate chip bars for my retreat 13-15 May. I wan5 to do ahead if possible. So could I freeze them after I make them??? In Saran Wrap ?

      1. Hi Krissy – They are pretty shelf stable since they don’t contain eggs or dairy but they will certainly stay fresher, longer in the fridge. You should be fine for a few days wrapped in plastic though!

    2. I just found your website and I am so excited. I have a son that is allergic to Dairy, Soy and Eggs so I am constantly seeking new recipes that I can make without those ingredients that resemble food that everyone eats!

      1. Hi Reji – Sorry for the confusion. My friend’s website crashed today (and yes, all while she’s in the hospital!) so I ended up posting the recipe on my website instead. It’s now live – sorry for the delay!
