Heavenly Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Heavenly Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting - Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningThis is absolutely the best pumpkin bar ever and I make it often. Today it was also Plan B to my failed attempt at making a new dessert recipe.
First off, I was totally wooed by a beautiful picture on Pinterest of banana cake and low and behold I had four very ripe bananas sitting on my counter, snap I had a plan. I did not study the ingredients prior to starting just a brief glance to make sure I had everything. When I ran into not one but two potential flaws in the recipe I decided to forge ahead and have faith. Bad decisions all around. My husband wanted to know my Plan B so I defaulted to making these never fail heavenly pumpkin bars.


2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
2 cups pumpkin


Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Mix together all ingredients.Pour into ungreased 11x17 inch pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until done.

1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 box (1 pound) powdered sugar
