This is one of my favorite quick and easy pumpkin treats. Now is the season to pumpkinize everything. Did you like that word? 🙂 I try and use pumpkin in as many things I can. Pumpkin is a nutrition powerhouse. Did you know that in one cup of pumpkin you can get 245% of Vitamin A? In addition pumpkin is also rich in Vitamin A. I hope you like this super easy and yummy bar I created last night. It is 21 Day Fix Approved as well 🙂 but watch the portion size.
