I made a few changes, but liked basic recipe. I added 2 large scoops of vanilla protein powder. I also omitted the brown sugar and replaced it with 1/8 cup of honey. I replaced the half & half with 2% milk. Very good protein bar for breakfast or a snack! I cut them into 16 bars.

Ok as a healthy snack, but didn't love the consistency or flavour of these. Had to re-read the recipe several times to ensure I didn't miss anything as mine didn't turn out like others said. were flat and not 'chewy'. I switched half and half to soy milk and added a little oil to compensate. The grated orange zest I added boosted the flavour, otherwise I think they would have been quite bland for my tastes.

I made these today because I wanted a healthier version that I could make with the ingredients I had on hand. I followed the recipe, except sub'd almond milk for half & half. I frosted them with a neufchatel cheese frosting (like cream cheese) and sprinkled some chopped ginger on top. They turned out sooo good. Very moist, and not too sweet, just how I like my desserts!

These had good flavor but they are much more of a baked oatmeal than a pumpkin bar. The texture is chewy and not cakey at all because there is no flour. Don't expect a nice light cakey bar from this recipe. For what it is...a baked oatmeal type bar, it is quite good and a nice healthy option for a snack or quick on the go breakfast.

Good but not great-- added chia and protein powder so I could turn these into a serious grab-and-go breakfast, and they're definitely good for that. Surprisingly moist, so even though they're not an explosion of flavour it feels more like a decadent baked good than a usual dense (and disappointing) breakfast bar. Next time I'll probably add nuts, dried fruit... and probably chocolate.

This recipe was good. It was enough of a sweet treat to keep me away from really really bad treats. However I found the bars a little too spicy all I could taste was nutmeg. If I try it again I might reduce the amount of spice added and add some walnuts to balance the mushiness.

Soft and tasty. Not too unhealthy either. I used regular milk instead of half and half.

I made these pumpkin bars today. They are a very good snack and much healthier than other recipes. I substituted milk for half and half and added 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. They turned out great.
