Glazed Spiced Pumpkin Bars
In response to the comments about whether this is low calorie, the nutrition information indicates that there are 160 calories per serving, which considering that many desserts have far more than that per serving this is pretty low. And without the glaze they would probably be more in the 140 per serving range.
Additionally, I am not arguing that there are not ways to make pumpkin bars with no oil and no flour as you stated, but at that point they are starting to be a different kind of dessert than the one described here. The oil and flour are what give sweet breads and cakes (which is what this is) their fluffiness and texture. And I agree with Jacquline. If you are going to express that you have a better recipe, please provide the alternative for us to evaluate in comparison.
