Pumpkin Pie Bars

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup of brown sugar

1 stick of butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 can of organic pumpkin

1/2 cup of applesauce


Preheat oven to 350.  Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Beat butter, sugar, vanilla until creamy.  Add eggs one at a time, then add pumpkin and applesauce.  Gradually add dry ingredients to wet and pour into greased baking pan like a 9 x 11.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.

note:  If you want to omit butter, add 1 cup of applesauce instead of 1 stick of butter.

If you like your bars heavier on the spice, double the spices.
