Suzanne’s Mango-Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars


2 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup powdered (dry) skim milk
1 cup bottled mango sauce (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons buttermilk, milk or yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together. Pat into a non-stick 9×13″ baking pan (spray with Pam or line with foil if desired). Bake about 20 minutes, or until a little brown on top. Let cool slightly and cut into bars, then cool completely before removing from the pan.

Yield: about 16 bars
