I made these, and instead of using 2 9x13" pans, I used a cookie sheet with sides. It makes more of a bar shape, and they were great.

Pumpkin BARS? They should be called "Pumpkin Cake." I followed this recipe exactly - except I used pumpkin pie spice rather than cinnamon, and I chose to bake this in a jellyroll pan (because it said "pumpkin BARS"). Don't do that - if you choose to make this, use a regular cake pan.

Wonderfull! I used 2 cups whole wheat flour instead of white. I only put in 3 eggs and used apple sauce instead of oil. And only used 1 1/2 cups sugar. Turned out great. I also baked it in a cookie sheet with sides.

These pumpkin bars are very light and tasty! since I don't eat sugar, I used 1/2 tsp. Stevia, a rice extract found at Health Food Stores in place of sugar. Also substituted oat flour for white flour and added 1/2 c. raisins. Bars are delicious frosted or un-frosted. I couldn't find my old recipe and was delighted to find this website! Thanks so much for taking the time to submit it!! Adele Williams

Amazingly simple and delicious! Make sure that you have one after it cools and right after you frost it. Great with the Pumpkin Bar Icing from this site. 10 stars!

I LOVED this recipe. I did use a cookie sheet and replaced the cinnamon with pumpkin pie spice. I did not have any cream cheese frosting so I just used a glaze and the kids ate them right up.

Yummy!! Split this recipe in half and substituted cinnamon applesauce for the oil and added 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon...yum, yum!! Used the Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site to ice. Delicious.

I have been experimenting with different pumpkin recipes and this one is it. I just took it out of the oven and smeared a warm piece with salted butter to test it - then another and another, I had three pieces! Perfect treat for a cool autumn day with a nice cup of tea.
