  • 4 eggs
  • 1 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1 c. canola oil
  • 15 oz pumpkin puree
  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • 3 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy. Mix in dry ingredients until combined. Spread in ungreased 10x15 inch pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until they test done. Cool.
  • For the frosting cream together cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth in mixing bowl. Gradually add in powdered sugar and cinnamon while mixing. Spread over cooled bars.
  • Store in airtight container.



  • If you don’t plan on serving them right away, I recommend storing the frosted bars in the refrigerator. This will keep the frosting stable.
  • Or, you can bake the bars a day in advance and tightly wrap them in plastic to keep at room temperature. The next day, you can make the frosting and frost them before serving.
  • Store any leftover bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
