Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper so that you're able to easily remove the bars after. In a large bowl, combine oat flour, oats, baking soda, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Stir in melted coconut oil until the mixture is crumbly and toss in pecans. Measure out a cup of the mixture and set aside in a small bowl. Press the remaining mixture into the prepared pan; you'll need to press hard to ensure that all of the mixture will stick together well. Bake for 10 minutes. While the crust is baking, prepare filling by combining cream cheese, pumpkin, brown sugar, vanilla, egg and spices. Pour over crust then evenly sprinkle remaining topping over the top. Bake for 30 minutes or until top is set and toothpick inserted into middle comes out fairly clean. Makes 16 bars.
