One of my favorite dessert to make around October. They are really just divine! They are a Cake-like pumpkin brownies made more interesting and flavorful with swirls of cream cheese batter.

These came out very tasty and moist. I used this recipe as an experiment for my diabetic husband and it came out great. I used butternut squash (that I roasted and cooled) and substituted various types of Splenda for the sugars and they worked well.

A must try recipe. I doubled the recipe and baked in a 10x15x1 jelly roll type pan. They are quite like pumpkin bars in texture and density. The swirled in cream cheese is divine and the bars are nice and moist. A definite keeper and new family favorite. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)
