    I thought that these were very good, but I thought that the orange flavor was a little too strong. I would use half the orange zest next time. I also added pumpkin pie spice which was great!

    I made the pumpkin harvest Bars for a dinner at our church and every one liked it. Thay didn’t know that it was diet recipe. I would rate this recipe a 10.

    After baking the bars I brought them to golf play that day and I have had request’s for the recipe. I didn’t have raisins so I added a small quantity of nuts and I am going to make these again because I loved them!

    I was a little disappointed in this recipe. I felt the bars were a too dry even after putting cream cheese frosting on top. I brought them to a Halloween potluck and they didnt go over as well as I would have hoped.

    These are delicious. I’ve made them several times for company and they are always a hit. I add nuts and increase the pumpkin to 3/4 cup. That makes them extra moist. They also freeze well.

    I tried these tonight using Splenda instead of sugar, cashews instead of raisins, pumpkin pie spice instead of ginger/nutmeg, and used 3/4 cup of pumpkin. They are pretty tasty. A little dry, but I put some fat free reddiwhip on them and they were amazing. Per nutritiondata.com, they were 125 calories per serving.

    Any idea how to convert this recipe into something less cakey? I was hoping for something a little more dense (like brownies) with even more pumpkin and spice flavor. They’re tasty, but again, pumpkin brownies. Mmmm.

    Try adding 1-2 T. applesauce to the recipe. Also, increase the spices by 1/4 t.
