  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Generously grease a 9 x 13 pan.

  2. Add flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Stir until well-combined.

  3. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla to mixture. Mix well. Then beat in pumpkin.

  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet (mix well), then fold in chocolate chips and spread batter evenly into pan.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from the pan and the center is set (toothpick inserted in the center is clean).

  6. Cool completely before cutting. Then Enjoy!

How long will they keep?

These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars will stay good for a couple of days at room temperature in an airtight container.  If not eaten within a couple of days, move them into the refrigerator for longer storage.  But they probably won’t last that long because they are so yummy!  

Please make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars for your family, friends, potluck, or party.  Everyone will love them and so will you.  While these bars are a little bit healthier due to not having the cream cheese frosting, you can make them even healthier if you use alternative sugar.
