  • 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tbsp dairy free butter we like Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks
  • 6 tsp coconut milk Or any non dairy milk. Add extra tsp as needed until desired consistency.
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.

  2. In a blender or food processor, add oats. Blend until oats turn into flour. Add pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix together well.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, add oat flour, applesauce, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until batter is well combined.

  4. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until middle is set.

  5. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.


  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk confectioner's sugar, dairy free butter, pumpkin pie spice and coconut milk together until smooth. Add more coconut milk until desired consistency. The glaze should stream down off a fork for drizzling across the bars. Use less milk for a frosting like consistency.

  2. Drizzle glaze over cooled bars and serve.
