Pumpkin Spice Bars Recipe – Perfect Sweet Treat

This Pumpkin Spice Bars recipe can be used in a variety of ways. You can absolutely eat these treats as a dessert. They are sweet and delicious and just perfect for the Fall. On a special occasion, I would even argue that your family could indulge on these bars as a breakfast option as well. With a side of fruit, of course! LOL! Have a party coming up? Then considering making a pan and bringing these Pumpkin Spice Bars along as the perfect hostess gift. What about your child’s teacher? A simple thank you goes a long way these days and I think this recipe is the perfect way to show a little gratitude.

The texture of these Pumpkin Spice Bars are firm – not gooey. They are dense and easy to eat with your fingers which makes them great options to take along with you on the road.  Think of these bars as a cross between a cookie and brownie. A crownie? I’m just making things up now. And if I had to put the two on a scale, I would say…  maybe a little more cookie than brownie because they certainly don’t have the fudgy chocolate consistency that you’d expect from a brownie. Either way, they are delicious and easy to make. Easy to eat, too. 🙂
