Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Oat Bars with Pumpkin
I think we all get sick of Pumpkin in the fall. Wait, what am I saying? Of course we don’t! PUMPKIN YEAR ROUND!
But these low carb chocolate chip oat bars are not just pumpkin. They are pumpkin AND chocolate. Could there be a better combination than those two?
The great thing about these bars is that they are amazing for a dessert, snack OR breakfast. Can you imagine waking up and getting to eat one of these lovely bars for breakfast?
Kitchen Essentials for Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Oat Bars
Nothing too fancy is needed for this recipe! If you don’t have an 8×11 baking dish, you can get one here on Amazon. You can adjust the baking pan size but you will have to adjust the baking times, so just be aware.
Other than that, you will need the standard mixing bowls and spatula!
What is Oat Flour?
Oat flour is simply the product of grounding whole oats. That’s it.
I generally try to stay away from the all-purpose gluten free flours and try to mix up my own blends. These gluten free oat bars have a base of oat flour and almond flour which work terrific together, by the way.
On a side note – oat flour should not be confused with (or substituted with) Oat Fiber! Totally different things!
Is Oat Flour Gluten Free?
You bet it is! Oat flour is most definitely gluten free. Having said that, oats do have a bad history with cross-contamination, so…….
ALWAYS check your labels and know your brands!
