Mosaic Dessert Bars

For a desert that is as fun to make as it is to eat try these mosaic desert bars. No two bars taste the same as they are made with JELL-O flavors - so each bite is different!

Directions
1. 
In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, pumpkin, sugar, and oil. Add the flour mixture; beat until well combined. Stir in chopped pecans, if desired.
