Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.

My daughter Laura and I (see below) love pumpkin bars this time of year! Yesterday we decided to try a different version from our old standby. We decided it was time to branch out and try something new. The new recipe entitled, Pumpkin Pie Streusel Bars, was found on the blog, Bakers Royale. Naomi says that she added oats to justify having them for breakfast! I love that rationale.
These bars are more like a cookie with the shortbread bottom and struesel topping. The butterscotch chips add a new dimension to the pumpkin flavor. They cooked up nicely, and were easy to cut when cooled. We liked them! Here is a snapshot of how ours turned out:
Our favorite pumpkin bar recipe is from the famous Paula Deen.
