Vegan Pumpkin Bars

Submitted by: SPARK728

Introduction

This recipe is better than the original and it's without the eggs and oil. The flaxseed paste gives the needed body, and imparts a nice mild nutty flavor that compliments the pumpkin.

    I made this but instead of Splenda (which I don't like in the least) I used molasses and it seemed to work well. They were moist and had lots of flavour. - 3/13/08

    Very moist and tasty! However, the amount figured for Nutritional Info per serving on carbs is too high. It should be 18g/serving. If it was 78g, the calorie count would be 312 just for carbs alone! 78g x 4 cal/g of carbs.It makes a great difference if you are watching carbs. - 6/13/07

  • oooh this sounds yummy and I want to try it with Stevia (or Molasses like has already been suggested!). I definitely won't use Splenda - it's against my "healthy foods religion"! hahahah - 9/15/10

  • I used raw sugar instead of Splenda, used non stick spray on the pan and baked for 45 minutes instead of 25. They were incredible! I'll be making these again! - 10/2/09

  • Saturday the G-kids & I went pickin' pumpkins. Sunday we made this recipe. The kids loved it. The making part, the messing part & the eating part.

    I did make a grownup batch with 1 cup all pourpose flour & 1 whole wheat flour. Great for old folk - gritty for kids. - 9/29/09

  • Not greasing the pan made for some sticky clean-up. I like the nutritional value of these quick snacks, but the taste was pretty bland. - 6/21/08

  • This did come out very pasty on the bottom, despite inserted toothpick coming out clean. This recipe needs some work, but is salvageable. - 3/30/08

  • Followed the recipe other than the Splenda (used reg sugar) and ended up with cake that looked good on the outside and was a gooey mess on the inside. I even baked it an extra 10 minutes with no improvement. - 1/11/08
