Great bars! I made these and frosted them with JamesDean'sGirl's Coffee-Cream Cheese Icing, which was a great combination. I added a cup of Hershey's cinnamon chips to the batter, too. Very moist and pumpkin-y, they definitely would have been fine without frosting (I'm just partial to frosted anything). I upped the spices (cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg) just a bit, because I like pumpkin stuff very spiced. I really liked that there was no oil in this recipe, too; I really struggle with adding oil by the cupful to recipes (mental thing, y'know). Very good overall, I'll be making this again!

These were pretty good. The texture was a little odd - not cakey but more like a baked thick pudding. But the taste was a nice blend of flavors. Very pumpkiny but still mild.

These were really easy to make and I enjoyed them! I found them to be like pumpkin bread but in a square! I will definitely make them again!!

I made this for Freezer Tag 2008. I used fresh pureed pumpkin and whole made applesauce. They were moist and flavorful. I didn't frost them, but did sprinkle with powdered sugar (although I don't think they added much once to the frozen product). I'll make these again. For freezing, I waited until they were cool and cut into bars. I wrapped them individually in plastic wrap and put them in a plastic ziploc bag. I've defrosted them in the microwave and by just leaving them at room temperature. They work really well to pack in a lunch or as a snack--they're defrosted by the time you're ready to eat!
