Pumpkin Pie Bars recipe – 193 calories

Ingredients:
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
1 1/3 cups flour
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1 cup old fashioned oats or quick-cooking oat, uncooked

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice


Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Line a 13×9-inch baking pan with foil (overlapping the sides of the pan with foil so you can easily remove the bars later). Grease the foil lining.
3. Mix 1/4 cup of the sugar, the brown sugar and flour.
4. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
5. Stir in the pecans and oats, reserving 1 cup of the oat mixture.
6. Press the remaining mixture onto the bottom of the pan and bake for about 15 minute.
7. Beat the eggs, cream cheese, pumpkin, remaining 1/2 cup sugar and pumpkin pie spice until well blended.
8. Pour over the crust and sprinkle with the reserved crumb mixture.
9. Bake for about 25 minute
10. Lift from the pan using foil handles; allow to cool completely.
