Pumpkin Bars

These Pumpkin Bars are so easy and deliciously moist pumpkin bar recipe, full of flavor, yet easily altered to a healthy option. Pumpkin Bars are a cross between a quick bread and a cake,loaded with pumpkin, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with a delicate cream cheese frosting.
I found this recipe on Hoosier Homemade. And while they’re delicious fresh, Pumpkin Bars get better after a day in the fridge.
