Make It Monday: Pumpkin Bars Recipe

I can't believe I haven't already shared this pumpkin recipe with you. Be sure to check out all my other pumpkin recipes. I love to cook with pumpkin. It is chock full of nutrients and fiber!  This recipe originally came from a church cookbook, but I have since modified it to be a little healthier (not by much, just made a couple changes.) These bars are always quick to be devoured!



Pumpkin Bars Recipe

2 C pureed pumpkin
2 C whole wheat flour
1 C raw sugar
1/2 C canola oil
1/2 C natural apple sauce
4 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp almond extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 jelly roll pans (about 11x16) with non-stick spray.
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until well blended.
Divide equally between the two pans.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Cool. Dust with powdered or top with cream cheese frosting (if desired.)
Enjoy!
