Pumpkin Bars Recipe
Oct 042015
 

I love pumpkin this time of year: pumpkin-flavored coffees, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin crafts, pumpkin decor, pumpkin printables, etc. You name it: if it’s pumpkin, I’m pretty much on board! That’s why I’m so excited to share with you all this easy recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Bars. It is not too sweet so it’s totally acceptable to have this for breakfast. I may or may not have had Spiced Pumpkin Bars for breakfast a few days this week! :)

Here’s a peek at these delicious little pumpkin squares. Of course, you could cut these into smaller squares and call them “pumpkin bites” and they would also be portable! Or you can leave them at a big size and devour them along with a hot cup of coffee in the morning! Yum!
