Pumpkin Bars

We all know that season when everything in sight is Pumkin Spice flavored. There's no better way to get the true pumpkin spice experience than by making a home baked treat that has real pumpkin in it. Make it easy as a bonus and we'll get out of that long line for pumpkin spiced coffee (which is also easy to make yourself).

Pumpkin Bar Recipe


Pumpkin bars are the perfect spiced treat that can be served individually with no mess. Easy to make, they're fabulous with our lovely cream cheese icing for an extra bit of decadence. Pumpkin bars should be refrigerated to keep them fresh, but make sure you get one fresh out of the oven for the ultimate taste experience!

Ingredients:


Bars:

4 eggs
1 2/3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
15-ounce can pumpkin
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

2. Using an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy.

3. Stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth.
