Spiced Pumpkin Bars (non fat bars!)

This is a great cake without fat! Yup, that's right, there is no fat, just pumpkin and applesauce! Of course if you want to keep it non fat, don't put the frosting on it! You could just sprinkle it with a little powdered sugar or use a dollop of Cool Whip.

Spiced Pumpkin Bars

2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
4 eggs
1 3/4 cups pumpkin
1 cup applesauce

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam.

In a large bowl whisk all the dry ingredients.

In another bowl whisk all the wet ingredients. Mix this into the dry ingredients. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean. Cool and frost.

Vanilla Frosting

4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla

Put the powdered sugar in the mixer and add the butter, start mixing while you drizzle in the milk. Just add a little at a time until you get the right consistency.

Yummy! Now if I can just figure out a non-fat frosting! I guess you could just use a glaze

You can't say these are no fat with 4 eggs in them. The only way they would be no fat is if you used egg beaters or egg whites.

Diane,that's a good point they would still have some fat, so I guess I could say low fat.
