These moist, chewy pumpkin cinnamon cookie bars are filled with pumpkin flavor and just melt in your mouth. You don’t need to wait for fall to make these sweet treats–anytime of year is perfect when something tastes this good. 😉

The other day we were all ready for snow. And snow did come–not a ton of it (they were calling for a blizzard), but there was enough to cancel school. And there’s just something about baking when the snow is falling down. Nothing quite like it. And because the temperatures were chilly, I was craving something with warm flavors. So my boys and I (and a few neighbor boys) rolled up our sleeves and made these pumpkin cinnamon cookie bars.

The base of the bar is made up of a cookie batter. I used Golden Barrel coconut oil to keep them soft and moist. You simply press the batter into a greased pan, and 20 minutes later, they’re done–they seriously couldn’t be easier to make.  The bars still crumble like a cookie, and with the addition of that amazingly creamy icing on top…they’re a delicious cookie bar that’s full of flavor.

The icing is a buttercream that has pumpkin and spices in it. It’s such a light but flavorful addition.

We finished them off with a dusting of cinnamon sugar–the perfect hint of flavor and texture.

The boys who helped make them (and also those who didn’t 😉 ) all sampled the bars when they were cooled. It was hard waiting! The yummy bars received rave reviews.
