A great dessert for any time of the year, but especially the fall, these pumpkin chocolate chip bars are so yummy!


Pumpkin recipes are all the rage these days, so when we ended up with some left over pumpkin after our Pumpkin Harvest Cocktail last week we decided we needed to find a great dessert that would fit right in with that great cocktail. This recipe changes it up by adding in chocolate chips.

Pumpkin Bars

A great combination of pumpkin and chocolate, these pumpkin bars are dense and soft, almost cake-like.  The chocolate chips give each bite a sweet creamy burst of chocolate.  This would be a great dessert for a Halloween party, or even as a different dessert for a Thanksgiving meal.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 can (13.5 oz) pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips & 2 Tbsp for top


Preheat oven to 350°.

Line and 8x8 pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Combine the egg, pumpkin, brown sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon.

Wait until the butter is not so hot before adding, as not to scramble the egg.

Add flour and mix until just combined, don't overmix batter.

Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.

Pour batter into pan, smooth the top with spatula. Sprinkle the 2 Tbsp chocolate chips on top.

Bake for 35 minutes or so until a toothpick comes out clean. You may need a few more minutes, depending on the moisture content of your pumpkin,

Love the look of the orange pumpkin and chocolate chips together. And I love that they make an 8x8 pan too because some times I just don't need a whole 9x13 cake laying around.
