After a weekend full of Halloween festivities we were ready for a lazy Sunday.

Pizza, Patriots, Red Sox, a fire burning and these….

Warm out of the oven they were gooey and delicious!

This recipe calls for homemade oat flour.  It was so simple to make, I will never buy oat flour again! Three cups of oats in the vitamix and voila, perfect oat flour!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. (I use a coconut oil cooking spray)
  • To make oat flour: add oatmeal to a food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes or until a fluffy flour is formed.
  • Comine oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices in a medium bowl, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar, vanilla, oil and applesauce. Slowly add oat flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips reserving a few tablespoons for the top. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
  • (I would check around 20 minutes. My oven must be off because I let mine cook for every minute of 30 minutes and they were still pretty doughy…not complaining though because they tasted wonderful!)
  • Let cool, cut into squares and enjoy 🙂
