I love trying new things, especially if that 'thing' is food.
I'm going to get funny looks or this, but I have never tried pumpkin before. I know, I know! No pumpkin pie, no pumpkin oatmeal, nada pumpkin.
Regardless, I somehow built up a collection of pumpkin recipes. When I see pumpkin foods, I am drawn to them (like pretty much everything Ashlae has posted this month) even though I had no idea before if I liked it or not.
Well, now it is safe to say I like pumpkin! I am joining the pumpkin lovers bandwagon.
So yes, these granola bars are indeed pumpkin granola bars. The recipe is from Clean Eating Chelsey, and it is very yummy. The only things I did differently were: replaced have the agave with apple cider (no idea why I did this but it worked anyway), used walnuts instead of almonds, and carob chips instead of cacao nibs.
Can I just say, carob and pumpkin are really good together. Really good. You should try it out.
