These were delicious. However, I tasted the batter before cooking and was worried that it might be a little bland so I added more cinnamon, nutmeg, and some allspice. It was great. Also wanted to save some calories so rather than layer on the icing, I used an icing bag to make some pretty designs so you got the flavor without all the calories. Yummy

I just made this for the 3rd time since Thanksgiving 2014.....It is the best "cake" ever! I say cake because I add and extra egg and I replace the veg oil with coconut oil. I also agree with another post and use 1 teaspoon of allspice along with the 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. The frosting is heavenly and creamy. Not supposed to be like a hard cake frosting....it just glides over the cake and is creamy heaven! a can't miss recipe indeed. And is so forgiving to your own tweeks and flavors. Next time I think I will add dried cranberries or raisins!

I ate this dessert at my friend's house for the first time and LOVED it. In fact, my husband said "I am not going to eat any dessert and he asked for seconds. Like my friend, when I made it myself, I used 1/2 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of apple sauce to save some calories.

yummy! These pumpkin bars are so good. I subbed 3/4 cup of Applesauce and 1/4 cup of oil for the cup of veggie oil and it turned out great. Very moist and delicious. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
