This is a lower fat version of Pumpkin Bars made for the getting lighter challenge of ZWT3. It turned out really well and I think you will enjoy this.

This is a great recipe even I had not tried this version but I modified this version to even lower the calories and exchanging ingredients for others and used Butternut Squash instead. Great recipe!! It is a great baseline and adding to it or just alone.. but one suggestion..needs vanilla extract to bring out the flavor...My dd did not even know she was eating healthy and she was surprised when I told her!! She even requested again and said it was the best cake/bar I ever made!!
