Healthier Pumpkin Bar




These pumpkin bars are so good. My daughter and I ate them so quickly. I love them with my morning coffee. These are the perfect dessert to welcome fall.


I originally was trying to make pumpkin cookies from a recipe I found on Pinterest. I realize halfway through that I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. I had already begun mixing ingredients. So I mixed up a few different things and created these bars. It was a delicious mistake. I often make mistakes while cooking. Sometimes it works out well for me, sometimes it doesn't.


I say these pumpkin bars are healthier but that doesn't mean they are a beneficial healthy snack. It just means I have used a healthier alternative. It's still a dessert and should be eaten as if its a dessert

  • Vanilla- Just a dash of vanilla probably about two teaspoons. Click here.

  • Butter- Margarine, it's better for your heart compared to butter.

  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips- Anything I bake, cookies, chocolate chip pecan pie, chocolate chip brownies, est. I always use milk-chocolate chocolate chips. Click here.
