Secret Recipe Club: Pineapple Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars

Sorry for the initial confusion with this post!


This is month #2 participating in The Secret Recipe Club. I was excited to get my assignment email from Amanda (who puts in SO MUCH HARD WORK organizing this each month!!) This month I was assigned The Wednesday Baker. :waves: Hi Andi!!! She has so many super fabulous recipes on her blog that it was hard to decide what to make. Her Tuna Melt Sliders were high up on the list but I ended up making the Pineapple Oatmeal Bars. Here is the recipe with my adjustments:


Preheat oven to 375 and spray a pan (would be best in an 11x7, but all I had was 13x9) with pan spray

Ingredients: Crust:
1/4 cup light brown sugar (26g)
1 1/4 cup rolled oats (100 g)
1/4 cup all purpose flour (30g)
17g oats, processed in processor to make oat flour
28g softened butter ( I used land o lakes soft buttery spread)
77 g pumpkin puree
3 packets splenda with fiber

Mix the dry ingredients together and combine well.  Reserve 1/4 cup of this to sprinkle over the top before baking. then stir in pumpkin and soften butter til well incorporated. Spread evenly in bottom of pan (this took a little bit of time, as my pan was bigger and i had to work REALLY HARD =) to get it spread over the bottom!)

20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup 1% milk
1 egg yolk
61 g pumpkin puree
1/4 cup white sugar
3 packets splenda with fiber

Combine these ingredients and heat in sauce pan until it starts to thicken. Pour over crust in pan, and sprinkle with the reserved oat topping. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean and edges are browning.

Makes 12 servings at 3 Points+ Each.




These were yummy, definitely different than anything else that I have ever made! I will make these again for sure!
