Pumpkin Pie Crumb Bars (Gluten & Dairy Free!)

We made it through Halloween, and next up is Thanksgiving! The one tasty thing they have in common is pumpkins, and I’m definitely in a fall baking mode! Again… LOL, and my waistline can attest to that! This recipe is simply fabulous! It combines the classic pumpkin pie taste with chewy oatmeal cookies and becomes a cake/pie hybrid in texture! Can we say YUM!? That’s putting it mildly…give this one a try and it’ll be your go to dessert for this Autumn baking & holiday season! Enjoy 🙂
