Meredith had mentioned a while ago that she thinks you could replace the banana with pumpkin in the 5(ish)-ingredient oat-banana bars. So, I used that as the basis for the recipe. I really just kind of made it up as I went. I added the pumpkin then I added oatmeal until it was the right consistency. Actually, I had to stop when I did since I ran out of oatmeal but I think it was actually the right amount. I then just threw things in from around the kitchen. I also had some nuts in the freezer so they went in too. Finally, I decided to really do it differently and add cayenne!

Comments before trying them: (ie, while they are baking). I could probably have used a bit more oatmeal next time. We'll see how they come out. The dried fruit really ratcheted up the points. I could cut that next time. Also, these have a lot of fiber. I made them for breakfast before a bike ride, but I may want to reconsider that much fiber before a long ride.

Comments on the thing itself: As I expected, it could probably have used more oatmeal. It was a bit mushy. Alternatively, maybe it needed longer than the 35 minutes I gave it. The flavor was very good. You could really taste the toasted nuts and the seasonings. Actually, the cayenne only gave it a spicy(ish) after-taste and not too much right on the tongue.

_Future Change: _More oatmeal (maybe 2 cups). Longer cook time. A bit of baking powder. Different fruits. More (or less) cayenne depending on what I want. More pumpkin pie spice

Note: This is how I did it today. See above for comments:

Preheat oven to 350°F

Chop and toast the almonds in a dry pan until they are fragrant. Careful not to burn. Chop fruit into small pieces. Combine everything and mix well. A mixer with a beater attachment makes this very easy and gives a good, homogenous mix.

Spread into a pan and bake for 30-35 minutes

Makes 2-4 servings
