Pumpkin Spice Cereal Squares

These pumpkin spice cereal squares are a fall spin on my original recipe for superfood cereal squares. They’re loaded with healthy ingredients and full of pumpkin spice flavor. Gluten-free and dairy-free!

Every year around this time I tend to go a little pumpkin crazy. This year the pumpkin bender started this weekend. I made pumpkin pie yogurt bowls, these pumpkin spice squares and two batches of pumpkin oatmeal cookies. I bought little white pumpkins at Trader Joe’s to decorate with and burned this pumpkin candle all weekend long. It officially feels (and smells) like fall is here!

So these little pumpkin spice cereal squares… they are a take on the superfood cereal squares I posted last month. In that post I mentioned that I wanted to try them with the new Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and it didn’t take long for that to happen.

I posted a photo of the pumpkin spice version on Instagram and asked if I should post the full recipe and everyone said yes so here it is!

The recipe is very similar to the original just with a deeper orange hue and that pumpkin spice flavor we all love. I’d say that if you already had plans to try the cereal squares, you should just grab a box of the Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and make these first. The original squares are awesome and lovely, but these squares are legit the perfect snack for this time of year.

Can’t you just see yourself taking a few with you for on your next fall hike or enjoying one as a snack after a fun day at the pumpkin patch?

I’m already considering making another batch because everyone I share these with absolutely loved them and they vanished way too fast.

      Could you bake these like granola for a crispier version?

      Your Instagram video is adorable! I made your superfood cereal bars and loved them (!), but we thought they were just a tad sweet. I thought adding them to a bowl of plain Greek yogurt made them perfect, though. 🙂 Do you think I could scale back the honey by a few tablespoons while not compromising their texture? I know it’s hard to say until I do so, but I wanted your expert opinion. Lovely fall recipe!

        Hi Kori. I’m so glad you liked the original superfood cereal bars! I definitely think you can scale back on the honey a bit. Maybe try 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup and see how they stick together. I’d love to hear your feedback if you try them. 🙂
