Frosted Pumpkin Bars

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons water
4 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel

In a mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Add egg, egg whites, pumpkin, oil and water; mix well. Transfer to an 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese. Beat in confectioners' sugar, then vanilla and lemon peel. Frost bars. Chill for 15 minutes, then cut. Refrigerate leftovers.

I left out the lemon peel & didn't miss it :)
I made them in a jelly roll pan which is why they are on the thin side & my boys prefer them without the frosting, so I just frosted them as we ate them
