MORE PROTEIN!, Recipes, Sweet Cheats

Is it October yet? Skinny Caramel Pumpkin Bars

Don’t get my wrong, I love the fall but I’m not a huge pumpkin fan.

However, when I saw a can of pumpkin in my cabinet I was immediately inspired! I get excited just thinking about the holidays but not so excited that my birthday shortly follows.. Yikes!


This will be our first winter season to celebrate the holidays as a husband and wife! For how much Rey and I love the holidays, that’s pretty darn exciting! Yes, you can see I was watching Grey’s Anatomy (guilty pleasure!!)


1/2 cup chickpeas/garbanzo drained and rinsed

1/4 cup canned pumpkin

3 tablesoon egg beaters

1 scoop protein (luckily I had BPI vanilla caramel)

1/4 t baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

*add sweeter to taste if necessary

Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.  May need to add a dash of water or milk to get it all mixed.

Lightly coat dish with non stick spray and pour in batter. You can use a square or round pan.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

I cut mine into smaller bars for snacking. These are so easy and delicious. The entire thing is only 270 calories!


I always tweak what I bake but here is the home of original recipe!
