Cinnamon-Swirl Pumpkin Bars need to be on your Fall baking list this year! A simple pumpkin bar base swirled with a cinnamon cream cheese mixture and topped with cinnamon chips. This dessert is packed with your favorite Fall flavors!
I was really running behind on the pumpkin spice recipes this Fall, because this was the first one I made!
We’ve been having an extra hot September and October so far here in Florida, so it’s been hard to get into the Fall spirit.
But I’m willing the nicer weather to arrive with these Cinnamon-Swirl Pumpkin Bars…
This dessert starts with a pumpkin spice base. It has a similar texture to the filling of a pumpkin pie.
Next comes a cinnamon cream cheese swirl! The mixture is placed on top of the pumpkin mixture and then swirled with a knife to create the pretty marble look.
Where to Find Cinnamon Chips
I finished off this pumpkin creation with cinnamon chips! Have you tried cinnamon chips for your Fall baking yet? I could eat them by the handful. They taste just like Fall!
I found cinnamon chips in the seasonal baking section of my local grocery store. If you aren’t able to find them, you can order online or use a substitute! Some ideas that work well are chocolate chips, white chocolate chips or butterscotch chips.
How to Serve these Cinnamon-Swirl Pumpkin Bars
Once the bars are cooked and cooled, they are sliced into bars and are ready to enjoy. I think they taste best out of the refrigerator, but you can eat them whenever you like!
These Cinnamon-Swirl Pumpkin Bars are an easy treat to mix up for any Fall occasion, from entertaining friends to Halloween parties to Thanksgiving.
