I love these. The flavor of the bars without the frosting is awesome, too. Not too sweet, nice texture.

These are awesome! Really nice flavor without being too "pumpkiny". I tested these out on the people at work and they all raved. I have to make refreshments for my church's womens group (and they are all wonderful cooks) and I am adding these to the list. The only change I made was to use maple syrup in the frosting since I didn't have any maple extract. It still turned out great. Try this one, you won't be sorry.
