Yield: 12 bars

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp fine ground sea salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup low-fat milk

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a small baking dish or loaf pan (about 9 x 6 inches) with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the pumpkin and brown sugar. Stir in the egg until fully incorporated. Add in the vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, and sea salt.
  3. Pour in the cocoa powder and stir well, until no clumps remain. Stir in the flour and then fold in the milk.
  4. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the bars are firm. They will have a tender, fudgy center that resembles a firm pumpkin pie.
  5. Let cool for 15 minutes before cutting to serve.
