Great breakfast or snack: Pumpkin bars

You'll think I've lost my mind with this one, but ... I haven't. Trust me, your kids will like it! So will your spouse. These bars are high in fiber, low in fat and quite tasty. Great for the lunch box, too! You can use any kind of white bean.

1 15-oz. can great northern beans, drained and rinsed 1 Cup pureed pumpkin 1/2 Cup maple syrup 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon 1/4 tsp. salt 1 1/2 Cups oats (rolled, old-fashioned or quick) 1 Cup flour ( used white wheat. You can use regular whole wheat) 1/2 Cup raisin bran cereal or muesli 1/2 Cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°. In a food processor, combine the beans, pumpkin, syrup, spice, and salt and blend until very smooth. Add the flour and pulse to combine. Add the oats and pulse to combine. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the cereal and chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Grease a 9x13 pan. Spread the mixture in the pan. This is easiest using the back of your spatula. Make it nice and smooth because this won't spread or get any bigger. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes. Let cool and then cut into 1-2-inch squares. Remove from the pan, wrap individually in plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator or in the freezer.
