Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Bars

by Rhianon Condello 11 months ago in recipe

Delightfully cakey, sweet, cinnamon filled, never dry pumpkin bars!

If this is your first visit to my recipes, welcome! If you are a returner, thank you!

I am a true believer that the world of food should be open to a person and moderation in all things is a great way to live life, that’s why I specialize in creating macro-friendly recipes that are much easier to “fit” in moderation.

As you get to know me, you will find that all my recipes use a moderate to few amount of ingredients because I also believe that cooking should be stress free and not break the budget. I encourage that for all of my recipes you look into buying frozen rather than fresh to promote longevity of each food item if you do not use it again right away.

I would also love to hear your personal spin on any of my recipes! Have fun and please enjoy

In this recipe you will find cakey, delightfully moist, sweet and flavorful bars. I know what you’re thinking, if it’s got protein powder in it, it’s going to taste funky, but this one seriously takes the cake! (See what I did there?) In this recipe you will find all the delightfully fluffy, cinnamon, surgery, goodness you love from pumpkin bars without all those calories! This recipe is great for a rainy day or when there is a little chill in the air this Fall, I personally couldn’t wait that long! No food is off limits in my book! Feel free to top these with a little fat free whip cream!

Note: This recipe is incredibly versatile, I made it into bars but it could easily be topped with whip cream and be made into a delightful pumpkin cake (similar to a pumpkin log at Thanksgiving!)

This recipe is suitable for bariatric patients, vegetarians, body builders, anyone who is practicing moderation or just someone looking for a delicious macro friendly dessert! I hope this treat graces your table at breakfast soon!
