Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars - No Sugar

Sometimes you want something sweet, but lets face it, added sugar or things made with flour (whole wheat or not) are simply little bombs of diet destruction.

So, this recipe, from Runner's Plate, fits the bill for something reasonably healthy, moderately sweet, and, assuming you only eat one or two, a good fit for proper nutrition

I will substitute 1/4 cup no sugar homemade apple sauce for the egg (perhaps), or one very ripe banana, mashed, but as is, looks solid.  I will be making this today, probably without the raisins or dried cranberries, but with pepitos (dried, roasted pumpkin seeds)

This is a fairly savory bar - not sweet, even if you add raisins, etc.  I suggest cutting at least two chopped apples into this recipe to get the sweetness up, or cut the pumkin some and instead add a very ripe mashed banana.  Canned pumpkin is not sweet
