Mix it Up: Pumpkin Bars

Holidays are approaching quickly and that means tons of new recipes to start testing before all the fun festivities. And what better way to start, then with PUMPKIN SWEETS!

This isn't just any pumpkin recipe by the way, it's a creative (healthier) alternative to pumpkin pie! Hey Taryn! Each bar clocks in at approximately 50 calories, so you have the second one guilt-free my dear! *wink-wink*

I love pumpkin pie, so I'm really looking forward to trying this one out!
