These Pumpkin Streusel Bars are a delicious fall treat. Made with a gingersnap crust and sweet brown sugar streusel topping, everyone will love these. Streusel really adds a special dimension to the humble pumpkin bar. It contains very few ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, oats, and spices. Yum!

Start these bars by making a gingersnap crust. As the crust bakes in the oven, make the pumpkin filling by combining cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, yogurt, cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg and ground ginger. Pour the filling into the crust and sprinkle the streusel topping over the top. Bake in the oven. Serve topped with whipped cream or drizzle the bars with icing.
