WHEAT, WHITE ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR OR SELF RISING FLOUR:

You can use wheat, all-purpose flour, or self-raising flour in this recipe (which contains baking powder or baking soda that makes the mixture rise.) If you are using self-raising flour, you will want to omit the baking powder, soda, and salt.

HOW DO I 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 an 18 X13) with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Mix flour, baking soda, powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar substitute, and cloves in a large bowl. 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

Combine soft cheese, skim milk, eggs and sugar substitute in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until nice and smooth. Drizzle the cream cheese mixture over the 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.

PURPLE PLAN: 1 SmartPoint per bar or 2 bars for 3 SmartPoints

Notes:

  1. The point value per serving is the same with or without the cream cheese swirl.
  2. If want to use a smaller baking dish ( 9 x 13 ) keep in mind they will be thicker (more cake-like) and you will want to increase the cooking time to 35-40 minutes.
  3. Point value can vary depending on the serving size: if you cut it into 18 bars they are 3 smart points per bar, if you cut it into 24 bars they are 2 smart points per bar or 31-36 bars they are 1 smart point each.
  4. In order to calculate the smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by ingredient) not by the nutritional information in the WW recipe builder-since this recipe contains zero-point items the app doesn’t realize there is zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional info which is not accurate.
