Yield: 16 Servings 1x


Cream Cheese Frosting:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup and pumpkin puree and stir until well-combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Pour pumpkin mixture into a prepared 9×9-inch baking dish and bake in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let the pumpkin bars sit for 5 minutes then remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. While the bars are cooling, add cream cheese, maple syrup and vanilla extract to the bowl of your stand mixer (or you can use a hand mixer) and whip on high until smooth. Add the milk a teaspoon at a time until you have your desired creaminess.
  8. Evenly spread cream cheese frosting over the bars once they have cooled completely, top with a little extra pumpkin pie spice and cut into 16 pieces. Enjoy!
