Soft, creamy and delicious, these Pumpkin & Cheesecake Swirl Oat Bars are like a marriage between pumpkin cheesecake and oatmeal cookies. They are the perfect sweet bite for the season!
A few weeks back I published a recipe for Dulce de Leche & Pumpkin Butter with Bourbon. To tell you that I am obsessed with the flavors of that delicious recipe, would be an understatement!
Dulce de Leche & Pumpkin Butter with Bourbon is a very easy recipe made in the crock pot. The combination of flavors results in an amazing and smooth butter and the aromas that impregnate the house are amazing! Forget the smell of seasonal candles! This is the real deal and you get to eat it at the end. What could be better than that?
Of course after devouring the whole pot (don’t worry, I had lots of help from family members), I decided to search for a recipe where I could use this amazing concoction and somewhat transform it into another glorious and more decadent bite.
While waiting in line at the market trying to ignore my children’s many pleas for candy, gum and soda (who puts that stuff by the registers? Not a parent I’m sure), I saw a magazine with fall desserts and I instantly got inspired.
Pumpkin & Cheesecake Swirl Oat Bars
This recipe is adapted from a recipe by Paula Deen. It is the perfect vessel for my homemade Dulce de Leche & Pumpkin Butter with Bourbon however, you can make it with store bought pumpkin butter if you prefer.
This Pumpkin & Cheesecake Swirl Oat Bars recipe uses a large 13 x 9 inch baking pan so you will have plenty bars to share! You can refrigerate them for a few days or even freeze them individually wrapped. Properly sealed they can last for up to a month in the freezer.
- On the recipe, when I say “spoon the pumpkin butter onto the cream cheese mixture. Using a knife swirl them together”. There’s no need to swirl it like a tornado (as I did) a delicate swirl will do!
