Sugar-Free Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Begin mixing on low, slowly increasing the speed to whip the frosting. The frosting is done when it is whipped and smooth.

Notes

Coconut Flour is an absorbant flour. This recipe will not work if you try and swap out another flour for the coconut flour.
You can use any natural sugar substitute of your choice. Monk Fruit Sweetener will work great. 
Molasses-- The molasses does have some natural sugar. I use a small amount here to give the pumpkin bars just a hint of a brown sugar flavor. 1 tsp in an entire batch gives negligible carbs and is well worth having the flavor come together perfectly!
Spices-- This is a lightly spiced bar. You could easily double the spices if you like a nice spiced pumpkin bar.
For best results, make sure that all of the ingredients are at room temperature or a little warmer than room temperature.
