Vegan Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Pumpkin everywhere! In the spirit of the season I am trying to get into pumpkin more. I saw this and thought it would be fun and easy to make. And it has peanut butter; one of my all-time faves.  Like if I was a contestant on Survivor, I would bring chunky peanut butter as my one personal item. Another bonus, these bars do not need eggs or butter so no need to bring anything to room temperature – these can be made on the fly. 

It was so simple and only requires one bowl. Double bonus! Or are we at triple now? I lost count.
