To make these pumpkin and cranberry granola bars, you'll add oats, buckwheat groats, dried cranberries, raisins, pepitas, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and pumpkin pie spice to a large mixing bowl. Then, you'll whisk together almond butter, brown rice syrup, pumpkin purée, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract over the stove, and pour that sweet, buttery deliciousness over the dry ingredients. After a few easy, breezy stirs, you'll turn the mixture out onto a pan and press it into one large granola bar. The bar sets in the freezer for a bit, and then you'll slice it into squares or rectangles—your choice—before enjoying.
These granola bars are best enjoyed straight from the freezer before coming to room temperature.
