Happy October! Pumpkin Granola Bars

Happy October! I just love this time of year with the cool mornings and beautiful afternoons! In honor of the month, I made some pumpkin granola bars this afternoon. Here's the recipe as closely as I can figure out to what I did. I have a bad habit of just throwing in a handful of this or that when I cook. I'll test this exactly next time and then make any necessary edits.

This is my own recipe loosely based on a couple of other granola bar recipes I found. Hope you enjoy them!

Pumpkin Granola Bars
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup oat bran
3/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar
1 t salt
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 cup raisins
1 egg
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 T molasses
2t vanilla extract

Mix first 9 ingredients in a large bowl and make a well in the center. mix wet ingredients together and then add to the dry ingredients. Mix well. Pat into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool for 8 minutes and then cut into bars.
