"A nice change from the chocolate stand-by. May be served plain, with vanilla ice cream, or frosted with vanilla or cream cheese frosting. If you like sweeter or spicier, feel free to adjust the amounts of sugar and spices. (I have added nutmeg to the ingredients, since I realized I had left it out when I posted the recipe)"

Yum! I really enjoyed these pumpkin brownies. I actually think they are great as a breakfast bar as they are similar in flavor to a muffin, but with a more solid texture. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8x8 pan...but they were too thin. Next time I would use a full recipe with the square baking dish to get a normal height brownie. Oh...and I left out the pecans and didn't frost them. Will be making them again.

My god these are fantastic bars, I have to admit I increased the spices slightly, my whole family went bonkers over these, I put them into my favorites to make very soon again, we loved then, thank you Mikekey

I love the texture of these but they weren't sweet or spicy enough for my tastes. They would make a nice lightly sweet snacking cake for someone who doesn't have as much of a sweet tooth as me. I made a half recipe of these as directed. I hand whisked and stirred it and baked it in a glass 8x8 pan. I was afraid of over baking them so took them out at 20 minutes because they seemed firm but they were a little doughy tasting so I microwaved my piece for a minute which made it better. I enjoyed it with a little bit of whipped cream. I could easily add more sugar or Splenda and double the spices next time. I'm sure these are great frosted but I didn't want to add the calories. I also wanted to note that I used Avocado honey which was perfect because it has a molasses like flavor. Freddy Cat says hi! Made for the Recipebook tag game.

How awesome are these!!!! Similar to a pumpkin bar but not as cakey. I chose to use a white frosting but for those who don't like a whole lot of sweet...going with out would be perfect as well.
