Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Pumpkin Choco Morsels Bars

I can't tell you how many times I've had to backspace and really really proofread this! The K key on my laptop works when it wants to.....very irritating!  Anyway......it's pumpkin season!!! Ok....for me, it's always pumpkin season. And these are 2 of my favorite things....pumpkin and chocolate!!! YUM!!!  You don't have to use the dark chocolate morsels if all you have on-hand are the semi-sweet ones.....just be sure to refigure the P+ if you even want to count P+.  I like the dark chocolate morsels because they have a better flavor and are like chunk-size pieces of chocolate. Whichever you choose to use, you will definitely enjoy this recipe!!!

Makes 12 Servings @ 4 PointsPlus®
Makes 15 Servings @ 3 PointsPlus®

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 ¼ cups Splenda granulated
3 TBSP water
1 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pie filling)
1 ½ cups dark chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; set aside.

In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt.

In a mixing bowl, combine the Splenda, applesauce, water and pumpkin.

When completely mixed, gradually add the flour mixture until smooth. Fold in the chocolate morsels.

Spread evenly in the baking pan and bake for 28 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.

Let cool for an hour on a rack.

Mine!  It was good!!!
