Pumpkin Bars

My daughter’s Christmas party is later this coming week. I’ve been thinking about what to make to send in and have come up with these yummy pumpkin bars. They’re tasty, festive and not all that bad for you. Plus it’s easy to cut them into smaller or larger squares depending on how many people you’re serving.
