Spiced Pumpkin Bars

I didn't expect these bars to be that great since they contain no butter or oil but they were light and delicious!

  1. Forgive my dumb question -- are these soft or chewy (cake like)? I am looking for something to make as a snack bar for my daughter that I can wrap in individual slices.

      That is a great question. These bars are soft, moist, and cake-like. So they would not be the greatest as a wrapped bar.
      Hope that helps.

  4. I wanted you to see my cloth napkins I made that you gave me the idea for. I couldn't find your post from yesterday about you making cloth napkins and didn't know how to find it.
