Pumpkin Spice Granola Fiber Bars homemade in my food dehydrator

These pumpkin flax oatmeal bars are rich in protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A.

This recipe was inspired by the recipe from tasty-yummies blog.
1 cup golden flax seed, freshly ground
1-2 cups pumpkin puree (or garnet yam, sweet potato, etc.)
1/2 cup oatmeal (or sunflower seeds)
1 tbs pumpkin pie spice mix (contains cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice)
1 tbs vanilla extract
water as needed to make a spreadable batter

The batter was spread on a solid dehydrator tray and was dried in the food dehydrator for a few hours. Then it was moved to a screen tray, enabling the drying to continue on both sides. When drying was complete the homemade granola bars were cut, sealed in plastic storage bags and kept in the refrigerator. These bars can also be oven baked as described in tasty-yummies blog. These healthy homemade granola bars are raw, wheat-free, gluten-free, and provide a lot of protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseed nutrition facts) and vitamin A (pumpkin nutrition facts). Pumpkin spice granola bars are a great healthy snack to eat while hiking. They are also good warmed up in the toaster for breakfast.
