Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bars (THM XO)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Combine all dry ingredients.
- Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
- Spread mixture into a greased 8x8 pan.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
These must be refrigerated. The first time I made them I did not refrigerate them, and they went rancid pretty quickly.
As written, this recipe is an excellent Trim Healthy Mama Crossover (XO) meal. All ingredients are on plan, and XOs are excellent for those in maintenance mode, pregnant and nursing women, and growing children to consume on a regular basis.
Men tend to have higher metabolisms and can also eat more XOs on a regular basis without gaining weight.
XOs are not "cheat" meals. They are a healthy and nutritious part of the Trim Healthy Mama eating framework. However, for those in current weight loss mode, XOs are best eaten occasionally and not for every single meal or for every single day.
