Try to eat just one of these light and delicious bars! They seem to melt in your mouth. This is a quick recipe that uses less sugar than most and even less butter and cream cheese in the frosting. There’s only one ounce of cream cheese and one tablespoon of butter in the frosting.
I can never seem to get the top smooth but it doesn’t matter since they’re frosted anyway. Plus, you can always frost them upside down. My oil of choice for baking is avocado oil but they’re not all the same. Look for one that is light colored and flavorless. (see my brand under “Products I Use”). I line my pan with foil for easy cleanup and I frost these bars right in the pan.
Some days I crave pumpkin pie but don’t want to work that hard. These fragrant bars are the next best thing. (My husband calls them pumpkin brownies – sounds like a ploy for me to put in some chocolate chips ? – maybe next time.) Click here for the recipe – Jenny Jones

NAZ ADAPTED MY WHOLE WHEAT BREAD INTO OAT BRAN BREAD
“Hi Jenny, Just wanna say thank you for your amazing bread recipes, due to my diet I cannot eat white bread, however I use whole wheat flour, oat bran and vital wheat gluten. I just baked amazing loaf only with 1/2 cup oat bran , 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup viral wheat gluten. Of course I halved rest of the ingredients too. This is one of the best oat bread that I have ever tried. Thank you for being such an inspiration. With love , Naz.”
