Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars



A few weeks ago, I shared my new favorite granola bar recipe here. Since then, I've been experimenting with different stir-ins and substitutions, and today's recipes is one of my favorites so far.

I know pumpkin spice tends to be a love-it-or-hate-it flavor, but if you love it (and I do!), these granola bars are for you.

The recipe is very similar to the original, but I've reduced the amount of millet, omitted the brown sugar completely, and added raw pumpkin seeds and some pumpkin pie spice. That's it!
