Frosted Pumpkin Bars
HELLOOOOOOOO from Michigan 👋🏼
We are FINALLY starting to get settled here. It has been a whirlwind to get to this point. The countless trips up here, making the 17 hour drive not once, but TWICE, packing, unpacking, and all of the stress that comes along with moving your life across the country.
When someone hears we moved from FL to MI....we get sort of a terrified, puzzled look. Like "why did you move from a sunny, warm climate to a frozen tundra?"
Well. In a few months I am sure that will be true. But one of the most amazing things out of this move so far has been this FALL WEATHER y'all. It is 60 - 70 degrees daily, no humidity, and sunny and clear. I literally want to be outside every single second. It is so nice to not sweat every single time you walk outside. I absolutely plan to throw this in my FL friends faces for as long as I can...until it gets insanely cold up here 🥶
So with that being said, I am going to go ALL out with the fall recipes these next few months. Midwesterns do fall the right way! Apple picking, pumpkin patches, apple cider, cider donuts, flannel, cute fall clothes...the list goes on. We don't really get this in Florida...like at all. So this is definitely a nice break from what we are used to!
So my first fall recipe for 2021 are these Frosted Pumpkin Bars 😛. These things are legit y'all. The perfect ratio of pumpkin, frosting, and fluffy deliciousness. They are super easy to make too! And they are #dairyfree #glutenfree and #vegan.
These bars are soft pillows of pumpkin perfection. Seriously. I took one bite and I was like OKAY SHIT these came out better than I expected.
They are even better when you throw them in the fridge 😍. Let them solidify up a bit and these are perfect with your morning coffee. YES I would eat these for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner.
Sorry I have been absent from the blog for the last few weeks with this big move. I am happy to be back in a routine (sort of) and baking again! Our garage gym is all set up also, so get ready for some solid Mazzurco Michigan workouts coming up 🙃
Happy baking! Tag me if you make these yummy bars - I love to see it 😍 XOXO
