Yvonne here from Tried and Tasty, bringing you another delicious recipe! It’s officially fall and I’m ready to welcome pumpkin season with open arms. Are you? These Whole Wheat Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars are the perfect way to kickoff the change of season. What I look for in a pumpkin bar is soft, fluffy, moist, and flavorful. These bars have it all. Make these for your family, coworkers, neighbors or holiday party. I can just about guarantee the pan of these will be gobbled up in no time no matter where you take them! The best part? The wonderfully delicious cream cheese frosting. I could hardly get it on the bars fast enough without wanting to eat the bowl up beforehand. So what’s on your menu for fall? Caramel apples? Stew? If nothing else, add these pumpkin bars. You can thank me later!
