Do you have any fun plans for Halloween? Halloween has never been a holiday that I got overly excited about. It was fun as a kid, of course, but in my late teens and adulthood, it just isn’t really something that I love participating in. I really don’t know why! I do love handing out candy and seeing all the costumes though, that is always fun.

Now that I have kids, I’m beginning to be a little more excited about Halloween – because the kids are. We love to pick out costumes and go trick-or-treating with them. (Although, I’m not a big fan of all the candy!) This year E wants to be a princess and N wants to be Spiderman. We have both of those costumes in our dress-up clothes so the kids are making it easy on me this year!

I decided to make these fun little pumpkin bars. My kids are obsessed with these edible mummies. And guess what – they’re seriously simple to make. SO easy. An easy treat that will have your kids smiling – major win.

As always, I tried to make these a little more healthy for my family. Instead of oil, I used non-fat plain Greek yogurt. It keeps the bars super moist without adding any fat. I swapped out part of the sugar and used Monk Fruit In The Raw®. If you’ve never heard of Monk Fruit, you can find out more about it here. It’s a zero-calorie sweetener, so by using it in this recipe, you’re decreasing the calorie content significantly. It is available in a baker’s bag size (that’s what you’ll want for this recipe) as well as small packets that are perfect for coffee or tea.

Pumpkin Bar Edible Mummies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Yield: 18 large bars or 36 small bars

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

For the bars:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup Monk Fruit In The Raw (16 packets if not using the Baker's Bag)
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the frosting:

  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Beat eggs, sugar, Monk Fruit In The Raw, yogurt, pumpkin and vanilla until well blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add dry ingredients to pumpkin until well blended.
  4. Pour into a greased 15x10-inch pan.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before making frosting.
  6. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, vanilla, milk, and powdered sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and combined. If you need to add more milk, you can add it in very small amounts but remember you want the frosting to be thick so it will hold its shape.
  7. Cut bars into rectangles. I made one long cut down the pan the long way and then cut the other way until I had 18 bars.
  8. Using a piping bag and a piping tip with a long, thin opening (I used one similar to a Wilton 104), pipe small dots for the eyes (you can also use a toothpick for this), and place eyes on top of frosting. Then, work back and forth with the frosting to create a mummy effect. It doesn't have to be perfect!

Verdict: What’s not to love about perfectly spiced pumpkin bars topped with cream cheese frosting (which happens to be my favorite). The fact that they are cute edible mummies is just icing on the cake. (Pun intended.)

Husband’s take: He loved these bars too. The kids were the real fans though!

Changes I would make: None are necessary!

Difficulty: Easy!

PS: Here are the edible eyes in case you need them!

  1. These are adorable! I haven’t tried Monk Fruit before, I’ll keep an eye out for it at the store. I’m not a major Halloween fan though I imagine seeing it through kid’s eyes makes all the difference 😉
