My Son’s Favorite Snack…Pumpkin Bars!

I can’t believe I haven’t shared these Pumpkin Bars with you guys already. I really thought I did. Anyway, I told my son I might try to make these for him today since it had been so long, and I got a “mom, pretty pretty please make the pumpkin bars!” I forgot just how much he LOVES these things! (OK, I love them, too)

These pumpkin bars are not only yummy but they are also full of protein, good fats and lots of fiber.  They make for a great snack!

We wanted to make these bars a little more portable so we cooked them in muffin tins. If you do the same, be sure to cook them for only 25-30 minutes. 

As he sat there eating the pumpkin bars, he actually said “Mmmmm, I’ve got 7 more to go”. While he didn’t eat them all, well in one sitting, this snack really is his ALL time favorite!!

 My friend and co-worker Stephanie Finn took this picture recently of her favorite pregnancy snack, even though she had the baby last spring. I think she still likes them….
