What ingredients do I need to make these One Point Sheet Pan Pumpkin Bars?

  • Whole Wheat flour, White All-Purpose Flour or Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Pancake Mix-if you are looking for a gluten free option, you can substitute the all purpose flour for gluten free flour.  If you are looking for a low carb option, you can substitute the all purpose flour for Almond flour.
  • Baking soda
  • Baking powder
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Salt 
  • Zero point white sugar substitute – I use Lakanto Classic Monkfuit Sweetener
  • Ground cloves
  • Unsweetened applesauce 
  • Pumpkin puree- not pie filling.
  • Eggs-lightly beaten
  • Light cream cheese– softened at room temperature 
  • Skim milk or unsweetened almond milk 

 

What sweetener do I use?

I use Lakanto Classic Monkfuit Sweetener in majority of my baking recipes.  This is my recommended sugar substitute. Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener is a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute. It is by far the best tasting sugar alternative and has zero aftertaste or gritty texture like some of the sugar alternatives have. It has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar-so if you were to use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the measurement that would be equal to real sugar. 

TASTES just like sugar | Zero net carbs, Zero calorie, Zero glycemic Sweetener

1:1 SUGAR REPLACEMENT | Lakanto has a perfect mix of monkfruit and erythritol to match the sweetness of sugar and maintain your baking and cooking needs

It’s WW FRIENDLY,  Keto, Diabetic, Candida, Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb, Low Sugar, NON-GMO, and All Natural

What is key to making these One Point Sheet Pan Pumpkin Bars?

  • MEASURING IS KEY: Don’t over measure the flour:  It has a tendency to fall and become denser as it sits in the bag. Always spoon flour by spoonful into the measuring cup to ensure we’re not over measuring!
  • DO NOT OVER MIX! This is a MUST!  If you over work your batter-you’ll be left with a gummy, chewy, gross pumpkin bar. 

How do you make these One Point Sheet Pan Pumpkin Bars?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 10 x 15 or  18 x 13 cookie sheet ( I use a 18 x13) with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine, flour, baking soda, powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar substitute, and cloves. Stir until combined.

Add lightly beaten eggs,

 pumpkin and unsweetened applesauce. Stir until well combined. 

Pour batter into prepared baking pan.

If making the cream cheese swirl you will need:

8 oz. light cream cheese, softened

2 Tbsp skim milk or unsweetened almond milk 

1/3 cup sugar substitute (that equivalent to 1/3 cup real sugar) I use Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener

1 egg

In a medium mixing bowl combine, softened cream cheese, skim milk, egg, and sugar substitute. Whisk until nice and smooth.

Drizzle the cream cheese mixture over pumpkin batter.

Using a table knife gently cut through the batter to make swirls with the cream cheese evenly through the batter. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Let them cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Using a knife, cut into 36 bars.

The point value per serving is the same with or without the cream cheese swirl.

Ingredients:

Cream Cheese Swirl: 

  • 8 oz. light cream cheese, softened at room temperature 
  • 2 Tbsp skim milk or unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/3 cup sugar substitute (that equivalent to 1/3 cup real sugar) I use Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 10 x 15 or 18 x 13 baking sheet with non stick cooking spray. (I use a 18×13 baking sheet.) Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine, flour, baking soda, powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar substitute, and cloves. Stir until combined.
  4. Add eggs or liquid eggs, pumpkin and unsweetened applesauce. Stir until well combined. 
  5. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  6. In a medium mixing bowl combine, softened cream cheese, skim milk, egg, and sugar substitute.
  7. Whisk until nice and smooth. To avoid lumps, make sure the cream cheese is softened, and/or at room temperature. Pour the cream cheese mixture over pumpkin batter.
  8. Using a table knife gently cut through the batter to make swirls with the cream cheese evenly through the batter. 
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
