- 2 tbsp. Pumpkin Puree

Place all the base ingredients into a food processor & run constantly until a ball forms and cleans the sides of the bowl.
Slightly moisten your hands and transfer the dough to the parchment/waxed paper. Do your best to shape into a 4 x 7 inch rectangle.
Sprinkle a light dusting of cinnamon on top of the dough and then cover with the 2 tablespoons of oats. Slightly press the oats into place.
Wrap in parchment or waxed paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Once firm, cut into 15 even squares & store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Yum yum yum! I really want to make these soon. Next weekend before I go home?
