Pumpkin-Almond Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I love pumpkin and I love granola bars. So last week, I made my Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars and I started thinking about other flavors I can incorporate in a granola bar. And since it’s fall, I wanted to make something with pumpkin again.

So this past weekend,  I came up with this new recipe: Pumpkin-Almond Chocolate Chip Granola Bars incorporating my family’s favorite morning cereal.

Fall is here! Make these easy and delicious Pumpkin-Almond Chocolate Chip Granola Bars! I was amazed at how these granola bars  turned out! There’s sweetness from the honey, chewiness from the almond and walnuts, a hint of chocolate and cinnamon, and a bit of crunch.  The pumpkin puree makes these granola bars perfectly moist too!

These delicious, chewy and moist granola bars will leave your taste buds singing! My husband and kids love these too, and that, my friends, is a huge bonus! So if you’re looking for a delicious, easy pumpkin snack or pumpkin breakfast recipe, I highly nominate this one!

Tip: If you need to make these granola bars nut-free, simply remove the walnuts and substitute the almond cereal with a nut-free, honey-flavored one. Don’t remove the chocolate chips, though.  Now, I’m sure you and I can agree on that one. ๐Ÿ™‚

So what do you think about these Fall-Inspired granola bars?  Would you try and make these? What other pumpkin breakfast or snack recipes do you like making for yourself and/or for your family?  Please share with me in the comments!
