Sorry, one last post on this nice dessert. By morning, they were definitely a moist, dense cake like bar. After spreading the cream cheese on the bars, I topped with 1/2 pecans which made a nice presentation. Friends at work really liked it and you wouldn't know it was low carb imo. Just saw another post that vanilla extract has sugar in it (didn't use too much in frosting, but just fyi there are sf brands). Enjoy!

I made this again, yesterday......but, without the oil. After they were in the oven, I noticed that the oil was still in my measuring cup Anyway, they turned out fine. Actually, they were pretty good. Just thinking....I really cut back on fat and calories

I haven't tried coconut oil in these, but I have switched to coconut oil in almost all my baking. Amazingly, they all taste great, even buttery. My husband does not like coconut, but he can't tell the difference. I think you would be ok with CO.

I made them last night using coconut oil, and refrigerated them overnight. They are really yummy! I whipped up a cream cheese frosting this morning, (just had cream cheese, butter, and liquid vanilla stevia). They are a really nice change from eggs for breakfast! I used xylitol and plain liquid stevia for the sweeteners in the bar part.

LOL, I stacked 2 bars on top of each other so I got the frosting in the middle.

I heated and whisked up the rest of the can of pumpkin with 2 oz. cream cheese, 1 egg, stevia, and pumpkin spice. I told my 5 yr. old it was 'pumpkin pudding', and he loved it!

Bake 350 for 30-45 min.
Let cool then frost with…

Cream Cheese Maple Walnut Icing

4 ounces cream cheese -- softened

2 tablespoons cream [COLOR="red"](I used organic half & half)[/COLOR]

Made these today for a family dinner - hit of the meal! I tripled the recipe, as I had a large can of pumpkin to use. Added some flax, and used Splenda quick packs (2) plus a cup of Caramel Davincis. Forgot to add the nuts, but the almond flour took care of the need for crunch. My mom is lc-ing (has been able to go off her insulin!), and she could not believe that she has options other than meat, cheese and veggies! This is a keeper! Can hardly wait to have the left-overs for breakfast with coffee. Thanks all!

can I store it in the freezer and do I just melt the baking chocolate by itself or do I add anything to it?

Crazy question, but do you think olive oil would work? I threw out canola and have only olive and coco oil. I'm so sick of the coconut oil.

Walnut oil does sound good! I'm stuck inside with the kids, so butter will have to do. Thanks!!

I came here to search for this recipe.....I can't believe it's been almost 5 years since it's been bumped & I was the last one to do it. I can't wait to make them. Super easy without a ton of specialty ingredients!!

I would like to make these as muffins. Do you think they will come out of a pan without sticking, or should I use papers?

I have enamel muffin pans and silicon.
