Low Carb Pumpkin Bars

Low Carb Pumpkin Bars

Low Carb Pumpkin Bars recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

Fall wouldn’t feel complete without smooth and delicious low carb pumpkin bars loaded with a velvety cream cheese frosting. These keto pumpkin bars have no added sugar and are just about as low in carbs as a low carb pumpkin bar can get.

Instead of sugar, I use a combination of sugar alternatives and just a hint of molasses. To get just the right level of moisture and creaminess, I’ve used sour cream in the filling.

Wondering if these could possibly be keto?

They are! In moderation. Keep reading to get the full nutrition facts.
