|Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Squares|
It's pumpkin post day for a me and a few of my awesome buddies from the Vegan Cooking and Cookbooks group on Goodreads! We are all posting pumpkin recipes and I have chosen these easy, moist and delicious squares that I wish I could take the credit for but actually found at another blog here. I've altered the recipe somewhat, reducing the sugar by a third and adding my own mix of spices. I've never purchased premixed pumpkin pie spice so I just Googled what was in it and added the amounts I wanted. This recipe was really fast to put together and I was excited to try the peanut butter-pumpkin combination.

1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon dried ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8x8 or 9x9 square cake pan with foil and spray with oil.
In a medium sized bowl, stir together all ingredients until well mixed. Pat down into pan and bake for 25 minutes. Let them cool in the pan before you attempt to remove and slice.
