• 2 cups puréed pumpkin or butternut squash

  • 1 cup chestnut flour + another ½ cup

  • 3 cups rolled oats dry toasted

  • ¼ cup maple syrup or ½ cup rice syrup

  • ¼ tsp nutmeg

  • ½ tsp clove

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • Parchment paper

  • a square cooking pan


Mix the pumpkin(squash) with clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

Separately, mix the toasted oats with 1 cup of chestnut flour.

Add ½ of the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients, mix well.

Put parchment paper into a pan and then pour ½ of the oats mixture into the pan. With wet hands press down the mixture so it is equally flat and the thickness is ½ inch or little more.

Add the remaining puréed pumpkin or squash on top, making it so that it is equally distributed. Sprinkle some chestnut flour on the mashed pumpkin.

Add the remaining oats on top and pack down with wet hands.

Cook in a warm oven at 350°F for 25/30 minutes.

The squares should still be moist, not to dry.

Cool down and cut into squares or triangles.


“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
