Easy Ingredients for Easy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars
You might be wondering if you’ll need to go out and buy anything fancy or unusual to make today’s easy pumpkin chocolate chip bars—but there’s a reason why they’re called “easy.” You probably won’t! 😉 Check out the easy ingredients list for today’s pumpkin bars:
- All purpose flour or oat flour—use gluten free if needed
- Pumpkin puree

How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars
As y’all may well know, I like to start a recipe by first preheating the oven, then making up any flax eggs that are called for, and then lining any necessary baking dishes or sheets. So, to start today’s pumpkin chocolate chip bars, we’ll begin by doing so.
First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Then, make your flax eggs.
Now, whisk all the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Then, whisk all the wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
You know what comes next: combing the two-mixing bowls of ingredients. Scrape the dry ingredients into the large mixing bowl of wet ingredients.
After, whisk the dry and wet ingredients together, being careful not to over mix. Since the batter will be quite thick, you’ll have to make sure and tap the whisk on the side of your bowl to get out clumps of flour and batter.
Fold in chocolate chips. You’ve just made your pumpkin chocolate chip bar batter!
Transfer the batter into the baking pan you lined earlier. Spread the batter into an even, smooth layer. Then, press chocolate chips into the top of the bars.
Bake the pumpkin bars for about 35 minutes, until the toothpick test reveals no crumbs.
Cool, then enjoy the best ever chocolate chip pumpkin bars!
Fluffy Like a Cake, With the Moist Richness of Pumpkin Pie
So you’ve seen these pumpkin chocolate chip bars, drooled over them, but are you wondering how they taste? If so, allow me to elaborate. These pumpkin bars have the tender crumb and fluffiness of airy cake, while still boasting the delicious moist richness of pumpkin pie. With this chocolate chip pumpkin bar recipe, you won’t be left with too-light texture, or heavy, dry crumb; you’ll be savoring every indulgent, rich bite of pumpkin spiced decadence.
How to Serve Pumpkin Bars with Chocolate Chips
My favorite way to serve fresh-baked pumpkin bars are with a feast of pumpkin, if you will. 😉 While your pumpkin bars cool, whip up a loaf of gluten free vegan pumpkin bread, then a batch of these healthy pumpkin oatmeal muffins.
While the warmth of these pumpkin chocolate chip bars fill you, allow this creamy, frozen pumpkin pie smoothie to soothe your soul. The contrast of cool and warm is très bien.
Craving something creamy to balance out the deep, rich indulgence of these pumpkin bars with chocolate chips? Try serving these pumpkin bars with a side of coconut chia pudding or coconut milk ice cream. There’s nothing quite like the combo of pumpkin, chocolate chips, and creamy, milky coconut.
