Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and my love of all things pumpkin is hardly waning. From yogurt to muffins, I relish this tasty flavor of Fall. If you're looking for a pumpkin pie alternative, these pumpkin-carrot bars are delish. The bit of cream cheese frosting adds a deceptive element of decadence.
Low in calories while remaining full of flavor, these pumpkin bars make a great dessert — perfect for potlucks (much easier to share with large groups than pies) and they're relatively guilt-free. They're high in vitamin A — and trust me you cannot even taste the shredded carrot — and a bar only contains 70 calories and less than two grams of fat. With nutritional stats like that, it's OK to go back for seconds.
