These pumpkin bars are swirled with a cream cheese mixture to make a marbled effect and are so moist and delicious.

Our first day of fall weather. So while looking for something to bake, these sounded perfect. I happened to have everything I needed, with a few minor subtitutions. I substituted half of the sugar with stevia for baking, and I used Philly light for the cream cheese. DD couldn't wait, and tried them as soon as they came out of the oven, I have to admit, I snuck a bite too. So glad I did. They were wonderful! The hard part will be trying not to eat them all. I can hear them in the kitchen calling my name right now!
