• Jamie Eason’s Pumpkin Bars

    It’s PUMPKIN season, y’all! Living in Korea can suck sometimes when it comes to getting things at the commissary. I swear people hoard when they find things in stock and then you never know when it will be back again. Thankfully I have a person on the inside that let me know when the canned pumpkin was coming back. Timmy and I headed out and stocked up on a few cans (and coconut oil while it was there again!) Don’t worry, I didn’t go nuts and clear the shelves. Isn’t that rule #1 of extreme couponing? Dont be a shelf clearer? Not that I have any coupons for pumpkin but you know what I mean.

    Anyway, back to the title. I have plans for some overnight crock pot pumpkin oatmeal but wanted to make something now! I went for the Jamie Eason protein bars. Seemed like a better snacky option than a lot of other recipes I found on Pinterest.
