Pumkin Bars

Yes! Tis the season for pumpkin. I have the usual pumpkin pie of course but I always love to enjoy pumpkin in every other way I can. As I channeled surf, I came across a little pumpkin trivia watching that for a time I found out some interesting things, like did you know that pumpkins originated from Central America about 7500 years ago? I didn’t, but I do know they are good for you because they are high in antioxidants and vit A plus the pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium but of course today’s recipe cancels out the benefits of pumpkin.

I’m sure I could come up with a healthier version of these bars and maybe I will look into it but for now I hope you enjoy indulging your sweet tooth.

Pumpkin Bars:

Dry Ingredents

1 1/2 Cup Flour

2/3 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 Salt

(1/2 Cup Butter)

Wet Ingredients:

1 egg

1 15 ounce can of Pumpkin puree

1/2 tsp Vanilla

In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients mix them well add cubes of butter. With a fork break the butter into the dry ingredients so it becomes a nice crumble. Pour 1/2 of crumble mixture into the bottom of a 11×9 ungreased pan.

In a small bowl add pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla mix well. Pour pumpkin mixture over crumble then top with remaining crumble.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.
