Looking for a healthy recipe that still tastes great? These pumpkin spice bars are amazing and are a healthy alternative to the traditional recipe. Using Cool Whip instead of cream cheese frosting and substituting Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour in place of white flour, they taste delicious and are better for you!

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup veg. oil

3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp. ground cloves
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
