    These are very easy bars to make and especially delicious when topped with cream cheese icing, my favourite!

    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.  -  10 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  22 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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  -  07 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
