This are wonderful pumpkin bars! They are moist and flavorful. I even decreased the oil to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup applesauce in it's place and it turned out great. My teen age daughters love all kinds of sweets and whenever I can lower the fat content of something yet still have a good product that they will eat, I am all for it!! Thank you for a wonderful recipe. We will use it often. KCShell

Very moist and delicious. I will not even try the regular version. I used babyfood applesauce so I could buy the amount only needed for this recipe. I doubled the cinnamon and used 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp cloves for the pumpkin pie spice. I also used a 9x13 pyrex. I made a cream cheese frosting for the top. At least the cake's healthier.
