Ever since I made these bars a couple of months ago, my sister has been asking me to make a pumpkin version.  I’m sorry it took so long but glad I squeezed this recipe in before Thanksgiving.  These are so easy to make and as a welcome change to the other holiday desserts, these aren’t actually all that bad for you!
