  1. I made these a few days ago on the same night that I made delicious pumpkin chicken chili . . . perfect combination! They were a big hit with my hubby and our friends, too! I linked to your recipe! 🙂 Next time I’m going to try making them with oat flour or some other gluten free flour sub. Thanks for the recipes!! 🙂 xoxo

  2. These look amazing. However, I can’t eat gluten, do you think they would taste as good with almond flour?

  3. Nut bar? It’s my first time to here a recipe like that since I am not really a cook. I’m just trying to be one. Lol. Maybe I just need to follow carefully the direction to make it perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Nuts are my favorites! Pumpkin and nut combination is new to me and I should really try this one when my hubby came home from his business trip. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe of yours.

  5. I am not a huge pumpkin fan. Do you think applesauce or mashed ripe bananas will work in equal measurements of the pumpkin?
