No Bake Oatmeal Bars

Something that is a challenge with the low FODMAP diet is finding tasty quick bars to eat for a snack. The ones that I have found, aren’t typically very filling or are so expensive! So I like to try new recipes to make bars for healthier yet filling treats. These bars are super yummy and easy to make. You can easily replace the pumpkin for some protein powder or extra peanut butter and banana too. There are plenty of ways to rearrange this recipe for other flavored bars. But these pumpkin ones sure are my favorite!

Low FODMAP No Bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars:

  • 3 cups oats

  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed meal

  • 1 cup natural pumpkin puree

  • 1/2 cup organic maple syrup

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 cup of organic peanut butter

  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Spread onto a 9x13 pan (I foil my pan first). Slice into desired bar size. We cut ours 5 times horizontally and 4 vertically. Freeze or refrigerate (we freeze because they are a little more solid that way). Enjoy and let me know how you like them!
