Easy Pumpkin Bar Recipe

Easy Pumpkin Bar Recipe [2]

Entering my mother in law’s kitchen and viewing a huge jelly roll pan of pumpkin bars gracing her counter top is the first memory I have of holidays in her home. Isn’t it amazing how smells, sights, and a great recipe can bring back a flood of memories to the forefront?

This easy pumpkin bar recipe has been in the family for a long time. In fact, the only recipe I have of it is just the ingredients scribbled on a piece of scratch paper  – no directions.

Since I wanted to provide some Healthy Holiday Recipes for you all, I had fun experimenting with this tried and true pumpkin bar recipe.

The results? A delightful product with less fat, lower sugar content, but still an amazingly moist and irresistible pumpkin bar.

If you want to dress your Pumpkin Bars up a bit, consider my easy Pumpkin Roll Recipe. [3]Honestly, I always thought it was so tedious, but it’s basically taking an extra minute and voila, you have a beautiful Pumpkin roll recipe that you can find here. [3]

Two words of caution as you make this recipe.

First, your children will be SO excited to devour them that they will NOT wait until the bars have cooled before they apply the frosting. This results in delicious tasting bars, but not award winning, photo worthy bars. 🙂

Second, the family will not be the only ones begging you for seconds. 🙂
