Skinny Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Yield

1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 box angel food cake mix- the 1 step kind
  • 1 15oz can Pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 8oz pkg. reduced fat cream cheese
  • few tablespoons of water, to be mixed with cream cheese

How to Make It

  1. I let the cream cheese soften on the counter for a while then I added it to my stand mixer & beat it with a couple of tablespoons of water until smooth. I just wanted it to thin out a little bit.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the cake mix, pumpkin, water, & cinnamon together until it is smooth & well mixed.

  3. In a 9x13 pyrex dish- sprayed with PAM- add HALF of the cake -pumpkin mix. Then smooth it out with a rubber spatula. Drizzle half of the cream cheese over the top of it and take a small spatula to smooth it over the top. Add remaining cake-pumpkin mix & also the remaining cream cheese just making layers. Finally take a butter knife- stick it into the mix and go back & forth over the top of the cake making figure "8's" - to blend it a bit.

  4. Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees OR until a toothpick comes out clean.

  5. I am always in search of healthy alternatives to recipes to share with a group I'm part of, I'm Getting Skinny and I Know It! If you are looking for help losing weight, come join our group.
