Oatmeal Pumpkin Crumb Bars

Oatmeal Pumpkin Crumb Bars
The thing about an Oatmeal Pumpkin Crumb Bar is that you can justify it for breakfast too 🙂 .
A little oatmeal, a little pumpkin, and lots of cinnamon-y flavors in every single bite.
Whether you need a dessert or something to go with your coffee, these will not disappoint!
Shopping List
2 boxes spice cake mix
1½ cups butter, melted
3½ cups quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin (I used Libby’s)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a mixing bowl combine cake mixes, butter, and oats tossing until crumbly.  Spread half of oats mixture across the bottom of a lightly greased 13×9 inch baking dish.  Pat oats mixture down to form a “crust” layer.  Spread your pumpkin over the crust mixture with a spoon.  Crumble the remaining half of your oats mixture over the top of the pumpkin and lightly press it down.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the center is set.
When the bars are finished baking, allow them to cool on the counter about 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
‘Tis the season for pumpkin!

    I love pumpkin (in fall) and oatmeal (all year round!) so this is the best possible recipe for me right now! The crumb bars sound decadent! 🙂

    Due to the pumpkin being a vegetable, I assumed it was as healthy as eating some sort of green bean crumble so I had a big ole square on Sunday. ;). It was GOOD!!

    Do you use Libby’s pumpkin pie filling or just the plain pumpkin? These sound delicious!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 4, 2018 at 5:54 am

      Just the plain filling…not the pumpkin pie filling.

    You know the deep regret when you don’t take three more bars?….I had that on Sunday! Ha! These are so yummy!!! They melt in your mouth!

    YUM!! Ok, this may be a crazy question (‘cuz I love me some butter!), but is it 1 1/2 CUPS of butter (that would be 3 sticks!) or is it 1 1/2 STICKS of butter? I am definitely going to try these this weekend!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 4, 2018 at 12:58 pm

      Yeah…it’s a lot of butter. That’s what makes it so good 🙂 .

    Quick Q: Do you think its important to use quick cooking oats vs. old fashion? This looks delish! Thank you for all your yummy recipes, I’m a big fan 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama October 4, 2018 at 12:56 pm

      I really think you can use either in this recipe, I just always have quick cooking on hand.

    What size cake mix did you use?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 5, 2018 at 5:24 am

      A 15 oz box.

        Do you prepare the cake mix as directed or just add the butter? Looking forward to trying this recipe!

        • Mix and Match Mama October 25, 2018 at 1:32 pm

          You do not prepare it, just sprinkle it on top!

    I am making these for a Halloween pot luck party! When taking bars to a party do you cut and serve them on a platter or keep them in your bar pan?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 30, 2018 at 7:24 am

      I do both! I don’t think you can go wrong either way!
