These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars have quickly skyrocketed to the top of my favorite pumpkin treats list. Dense, chewy, soft and loaded with chocolate chips, they’re completely fabulous!
It’s that time of year when pumpkin baked goods are everywhere and I’m not upset about it. Are you?
I’m one of those gals who could bake pumpkin goods year round and never get tired of them. So if you love pumpkin desserts as much as I do, then you’re going to love these pumpkin chocolate chip bars.
I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate chips. It’s kind of like peanut butter and jelly. They just go together so well! Am I right?
When I saw this recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip bars over at The Food Charlatan I was drooling and knew I needed them in my life. Anything Karen makes is amazing and I wish were were neighbors.
These bars aren’t your typical cakey pumpkin bars. They are more like a brownie. They are fudgy, chewy and insanely good!
Using melted butter helps these bars have a brownie-like texture. Also, only use 1 egg instead of 3 or 4 like you would in brownies, keeps these bars more dense than cakey.
Besides being completely fabulous, these bars don’t even require a stand or hand mixer. They are made in the same pan you melt the butter in. Don’t we all love it when there aren’t a ton of dishes to wash?
Lineup of ingredients
- pumpkin pie spice
- freshly grated nutmeg
