Great Bar recipe that is good with ice cream, or sold at a bazaar! Pureed squash can be used in place of the pumpkin.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until bars spring back when lightly touched. Cool before cutting into bars.

Very moist and flavorful. I substituted applesauce for the vegetable oil to lessen fat and calories. Read More

Good recipe. Easy to prepare. Moist. More of a cake than what you typically think of a bar. Next time I would use cool whip instead of serving with ice cream as recommended. Read More

Loved it! Made a few modifications: used fresh pumpkin cut the sugar in half and used whole wheat flour. Turned out more like cake than bars but great flavor and moist! Read More

This is a wonderful recipe to "whip up" at the last minute. They are very moist but not too crumbly and taste great served with whip cream! However they are best the first day after they are made so I don't recommend making them too far in advance. Also I added a dash (aprox 1/2 tsp) of Pumpkin Pie Spice to the batter for a little extra kick. Read More

11.13.03 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/20119/pumpkin-bars-iv/ ... To reduce oil, I subbed 3/4c oil & 1/4c water. To reduce sugar, 1 3/4c sugar & 1/4c applesauce. I also didn't add the ginger & reduced the nutmeg to 1/4tsp. I wanted pumpkin bars, not gingerbread-tasting pumpkin. It was very good, but takes longer to bake. I'll try a larger pan next time or maybe I'll skip the water. I added half cup raisins, too. It was a good idea. Read More

I loved this recipe. It was the perfect consistency not to light and not too heavy. I used 2 cups of real pumpkin (not canned) and I think that next time I will put 3 cups in. The pumpkin flavor was not strong enough. It is best eaten the day after. YUMMY! Read More

Sub: applesauce for oil 1/4c splenda brown sugar blend 1/4c white sugar vs 2c white sugar used 1/2 wheat flour vs all white and added 1/3c dried cranberries. very moist not too sweet bar. Was a hit and will be a keeper recipe! Read More

Because I added 1 c chocolate chips I used 3/4 c softened butter 1-1/2 c sugar and 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice (for the spices). It came out delicious! The texture is soft but handle-able and nice. I'd love to use a cream cheese frosting but half my family is anti-frosting anything. This is a definite keeper! (I think I could even reduce the sugar more. Next time I'll use 1-1/4 cup or even just 1 cup. The chocolate chips make it plenty sweet.) GLUTEN FREE version: I used 2/3 c (each) chickpea flour fine corn flour and tapioca flour. I also added 2 tsps Xantham gum. (Brown rice flour could be used for the fine corn.) Read More

My 3yr old daughter loves it & asked for it. to make it more nuturious add tofu pureed in with the pumpkin before adding the pumpkin (this gives the recipe protein ). Read More
