these were sooo good and moist! i actually made them into bran muffins by just putting wheat flour, bran, and oats for the flour and putting them in muffin tins. i also threw in some walnuts. it makes about 11 muffins. i had to make them twice in three days b/c they went so fast! the pumkin/ginger combo is fantastic. and it was so fast to throw together! i love this recipe and will keep it and make it often. thank you.

It was a little too dense for my liking. Good flavor, but the pumpkin was a tad overpowering. I think the recipe is a good start though and I think I could work with it to get the bars I envisioned!
