These Pumpkin Bars Are Your New Addiction

Calling all the sweet tooths, but make it Fall.

Fall is here and Trader Joe’s has stocked its shelves with its seasonal fall food. So, let's make some yummy pumpkin bars to spice up the season. These pumpkin bars served warm will melt in your mouth. When drizzled with icing, it's perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. I've been making these pumpkin bars for years and it is by far my favorite sweet of the season.


When I was younger, my stepmom would make these bars in the morning and right when I started walking down the stairs, the sweet smell of the bars would fill the entire house. I would eat a bar for breakfast and pair it with some almond milk, which is the perfect mixture.


Plugin your fall lights, light your fall candles and let’s get baking.



Ingredients:


Bars:

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar

  • 1 cup of canola oil

  • 1 can of pumpkin

  • 2 cups of flour

  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda


Icing:

  • 6 ounces of cream cheese

  • 2 cups of confectioners sugar

  • 1/4 cup of butter

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon of milk (any kind)


Instructions:


Preheat oven to 350°


In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin. Beat until well blended.


In a separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.


Slowly add your dry ingredients into the wet pumpkin mixture until mixed completely.


Pour mixture into a 15x10 baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.

For the icing, combine cream cheese, confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and milk into a bowl. Once bars are cool, spread icing across the bars. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of the icing.


Once you take these bars out of the oven, the smell of pumpkin will fill your house and it mixes perfectly with the fall candle you already had lit.

These bars are sure to be the front runner for the best Halloween treat at your costume party, socially distanced of course!
