Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Chocolate and pumpkin make a savory/sweet flavor combination that has you wondering what the genius who paired them up was thinking. Whoever it was, we all owe them one gigantic THANK YOU! 

Making these delicious pumpkin chocolate chip bars is similar to making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but instead of needing to take the time to roll out cookie dough balls, you’re just placing everything on a cookie sheet and baking. You can then cook it up and cut into as many pieces as you want. Perfect for dividing for family snack time.

Pro Tip: If you don’t cut the pumpkin chocolate chip bars, and you eat it straight off of the pan with a fork, you technically only ate one piece. 😉

In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin using a hand mixer. Then add in the eggs and the milk. When everything is well combined, add in the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice, and continue mixing until the batter forms without any lumps.

Fold in the chocolate chips using a large wooden spoon or similar utensil. 

Then spread the dough into a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes. The dough will be spread pretty thin on the cookie sheet, don’t worry though, the bars will rise quite a bit while baking. I like to sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top to make the final product extra pretty.

You will know that it is done when the top is no longer glossy, and you can insert a toothpick into the center and have it come out clean. 

Then allow the giant cookie to cool in the pan before cutting into bars.

  1. Sure! Just cut into bars, wrap and then freeze. When you are ready to eat them, take them out of the freezer and set them at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
