BREE WEE: Mom & Triathlete - Hawaii

BREE WEE: Mom & Triathlete - Hawaii:
Pumpkin Pie Bars

"15 oz can of pumpkin (no other ingredients, just pumpkin in there)
2 bananas
10oz of dates (no pits)
1 cup mac nuts (pecans or walnuts taste good in there too)
1/4 cup agave syrup (or maple syrup)
1 cup oats (Coaches Oats work best, whatever you have is ok)
coconut shreds or carob/chocolate chips optional

To do:
In a food processor combine the mac nuts, a few shakes of cinnamon, and the dates. Process about 2 minutes, until it gets really soft and forms sort of a dough ball. That is the crust. Simple. Spray a pie pan with cooking spray, evenly flatten the crust mixture onto the pie pan. (above photo, in the black pie pan is my crust laid out).

In a bowl combine 2 bananas mashed, the pumpkin, 2 shakes of cinamon, agave syrup, and the oats. Mix well then spread evenly over the crust.

Bake on 350* for 20-25 minutes. (check it as your oven might be faster or slower than mine). Let cool then enjoy with a scoop of yogurt on top, if you are Kainoa, (he puts yogurt on everything).

The optional ingredients: We sometimes add 1/2 cup of coconut shreds to our crust to make the mac nut and coconut Hawaiian crust flavor. The carob (or chocolate chips), 1/2 cup or so give the pumpkin pie a different twist for the holidays..."
