No Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Bars

These No Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Bars are filled with delicious ingredients like peanut butter, pumpkin, rolled oats, and puffed rice cereal all topped with a layer of dark chocolate and festive sprinkles for the perfect sweet treat!

Yield: 16 bars 1x




  1. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, puffed rice cereal, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice and salt.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, pumpkin, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.  Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix well using a spatula until combined.
  2. Transfer the oat mixture to an 8×8 baking pan lined with parchment paper (this makes it easier to remove the bars once they are set).  Firmly press down the oat mixture into the pan using a spatula in an even layer.
  3. Add dark chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 15 to 30 second intervals, mixing each time, until melted.  Spread the melted chocolate in an even layer over top of the pumpkin layer using a spatula and top with sprinkles, if desired.
  4. Cover and place the bars in the fridge (or freezer) for at least 2-3 hours until the chocolate has hardened and bars are set.  When ready to serve, let the bars sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before slicing to avoid cracking the chocolate.
