Author Notes

There are no tricks with these pumpkin pie bars, instead they will make the perfect treat for you and your loved ones this halloween.
Pumpkins are an extremely nutrient dense food that is full of vitamins and minerals, it has an very high content of the antioxidant beta-carotene as well as having lots of fibre, potassium and vitamin C which all contribute to a healthy heart. A good excuse to eat them all year round. —Madeleine Shaw
