Pumpkin Cake Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Cake Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

I love trying that first bite of a new recipe to see if it’s a keeper or not. Well, this recipe my friends, is definitely a keeper. In fact I would say it’s life-changing. You can change lives with this. Well, maybe just waistlines.

In order to not eat the whole pan, I brought the batch to work to surprise my coworkers. From the cubicles I heard, “Oh my gawwwwd,” “Yep, this is amazing,” “So good,” and many more. You get the idea.

Not to mention these pumpkin bars are not only tasty, but low in fat. Which in my mind means you can eat as many as you want.
