After making Ina’s Granola Bars, I realized what a quick, easy and healthy snack they are to make. Instead of following a recipe this time, I decided to make up my own. To tell you the truth I am quite surprised how it turned out. Chewy and delicious. YUM!

- 2 Bags of Original Instant oatmeal
- 1/2 Cup of Pumpkin Puree
- 1/4 Cup of Honey

- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice
- 5 Large dates Chopped
- 1/2 chopped Almonds
- 1/4 Cup of Cranberries

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees. Spray a 8 x 8 inch pan and line it with parchment paper.
2.) Pour the oats, dried fruits and almonds into a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the Pumpkin puree, apple sauce, honey, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin spice and sugar.
