Chocolate Holiday Oat LoafSince I have about 6 hours between breakfast and lunch, a dietitian recommended that I have a Kind bar to tide me over. They are expensive and have a lot of calories and carbs. When I saw this recipe in the Penzey's catalog, I showed it to her, and she said it was good. It tastes great, and has 130 calories per slice instead of 200 per bar. The carbs are 19 grams compared to 22 or more per bar. They also cost a lot less than commercially prepared bars. If pumpkin is hard to find, you can substitute canned yams. Of course, this can be made for its original purpose, dessert!


Total Time: 35-40 minutes to bake, 10 minutes to prepare

Yield: 12 slices
