These are the tastes of autumn for me, pumpkin, maple syrup and raisins. A delicious snack or dessert.
Happily gobbled up at a Halloween pot-luck party. NOTE: The recipe doesn't list salt as an ingredient and uses oil instead of "salted" butter. I think the flavor is enhanced with an 1/8 to a 1/4 tsp. of salt. - 29 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. The reviews commented that it was more airy than your standard bar and had light pumpkin flavor; I like a lot of pumpkin so I used a whole can of pumpkin (about double what the recipe calls for) and compensated with an extra 1/4 c of flour and only half the amount of oil. The result: very dense and pumpkiny, very delicious. I also added 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/2 c of walnuts as recommended. - 01 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These bars were very moist and very good. I used half wheat flour and half applesauce and canola oil in place of the vegi. oil. It worked out fine and makes it a bit healthier. I will use another teaspoon of pumpkin spice next time. - 17 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
