Fall Baking Extravaganza--Part I

I don't even feel bad for already eating four pieces of these delectable Healthy Pumpkin Bars.

Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (I used 1/2 a cup instead...I was unable to see that much sugar potentially entering my body)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin
I mixed the wet ingredients together in a bowl, and the dry ingredients together in another bowl.

I had to transfer this into another bowl. I had no idea how much this would make!

Then I slowly added the dry ingredients to the wet, and transferred it into a (non-stick sprayed) large baking dish.

That went into the oven (350 degrees) for 25-30 minutes.

I didn't even wait for it to cool. I cut myself a slice and drizzled a small amount of honey on top.

Then I proceeded to eat three more. It's okay, it's Halloween weekend--better than eating sat fat-loaded Milky Ways/Twix/Reese's! (Sorry if I disappointed anyone with that not so fun fact. I was pretty disappointed myself).

Yum! SO going to Namaste-ize these pumpkin bars-- thinking of cutting out the sugar fully (just some stevia drops), adding oat or coconut flour and adding coconut milk instead of applesauce. Ready, set, GO :)

That sounds like such a good idea!! I'll be looking for your post on the Namaste-ized pumpkin bars :)
