My only comment is that they were WAY too wet. It didn't bother me hugely, b/c the taste is so perfect. But I would like to try to get them drier for the future. I thought I had undercooked them, but I heard someone else, who's a better baker than I am say the same thing. I'm thinking next time, I'll use less oil with the DV syrup.

Elle I could eat that tiny piece in one bite. I have serious portion control issues with this dessert.

I completely agree about the wetness. It's like a soggy wet piece of pumpkin pie. I'd like a real lemon bar texture. I think reducing the amount of fat and using butter instead of oil would make them less wet, since butter is somewhat solid at room temperature. (On the same token, oil instead of butter makes for moister cakes.)

Leslie, it *is* a tiny portion, isn't it! I've actually been eating *2* servings (twice the size in the photo) and counting double the carbs the last 2 days. I may have to save these for maintenance, b/c even though my daily carb count hasn't gone above 20, I've gained a pound in the 3 days I've been eating these. I hope it's not related, but if it is, these will def be on my maintenance menu.

Panthea, thanks for the tips! I will def try that next time!

Funny about the gain, Elle. I gained with these too. 3 pounds in a week.

Was tossing around making them again but just remembered this.

I wasn't eating very many carbs then, so maybe one more college try won't hurt!

I did it!! Here's the original recipe:

1 cup almond flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves (or 2 tsp Allspice instead of cinn or cloves)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
24pks splenda (OR 1/2 cup davinci SF syrup and 6pks of Splenda)
3 tblsp chopped walnuts

Then mix:
1 cup mashed pumpkin
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil

Mix dry into wet and pour into sprayed 9x13 inch pan. Bake 350 for 30-40 min. Let cool then frost.

Here's what I did to get rid if the wet mush texture:

I didn't use any DaVinci; used 1/4 tsp.Sweetzfree and a dash of vanilla extract.
Put only 3/4 cup pumpkin in and used only 1/3 cup of oil.

Baked for 40 minutes in a square pan. They came out exactly like a nice cakey bar!!! Oh, and I DID use almond flour.

Well, my gain was only temporary, I guess. Lost it all and then some, still losing, eating 2 servings a day (8.5 g total carb from the bars, 20g total carbs for the day). I was really happy, 'cause I didn't want to throw those babies out! After all, pumpkin *is* a veggie!

I'm so glad you guys posted that these turned out wet. I thought I had done something really wrong. Oh well, next time, no Davinci.

I'm going to try them with less oil rather than less Davinci's tonight. I'd rather lower the calorie count. We'll see how they do.

Just curious, did these turn out less moist with less oil?

This pumpkin recipe sounds delicious - do you know how many carbs are in a serving and what the serving size would be?
Thanks!

I just made this recipe and mine didn't turn out wet at all using Da Vinci Syrup. Hmmmm.

Also, they surely didn't get that tall either. I used a regular rectangular cake pan 9 x 13. The only thing I omitted was the baking soda.

I think for a great tasting pumpkin treat these are it! I'll have to play around with the recipe a bit like some of you did and maybe use a smaller pan so I can get more of a higher bar.

Excellent taste and I'll keep this recipe in my files. Thanks to the original poster, for the recipe!!!
