Pumkin Bars

Submitted by: LIVINGDEAD_GIRL

Introduction

A healthier take on pumpkin desserts for the fall.

Took this recipe from BH&G cookbook and adapted it somewhat. Replaced half of the flour with whole wheat flour, not sure how replacing all the flour with whole wheat flour will taste. The frosting I used at the end is also added into the nutrition information, so if you do not add the frosting, yours will be less in calories and fat.

I also added in nutmeg to the recipe since I love nutmeg, and used cinnamon applesauce and did not alter the amount of cinnamon in the recipe. Fell free to adjust the spices to you likings if need be.

Ingredients

    1 Cup All Purpose Flour
    1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
    1 1.2 Cup Splenda
    2 tsp Baking Powder
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/4 tsp Nutmeg
    1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
    4 Beaten Eggs
    1 15-oz can of Pumpkin or 1 1/4 Cup of pureed Pumpkin
    1/2 Cup Cooking Oil (I used vegetable oil)
    1/2 Cup AppleSauce (I used Cinnamon AppleSauce, but if you use unsweetened applesauce, again yours will be lighter in calories

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl stir together the first 9 ingrediants. Stir in the eggs, pumpkin, oil, and applesauce until combined. Spread in an ungreased 15X10X1 inch baking pan.

Bake in a 350 F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toopick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 2 hours.

If desired: Spread with cream cheese frosting

The original recipe says there were to be 48 servings, but I only got 25, so depending on how big or small you cut your bars.......if you get 48 servings each bar will be just about 70 calories a peice.

Number of Servings: 48
