Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars @tableforseven #tableforsevenblog #pumpkin #chocolatechip

Before I was a food blogger, pumpkin wasn’t something we ate much of.  Sure, we had pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, but, that was about it.


Every fall, my 9 year old bombards me with questions..where is the pumpkin desserts? The kid is totally hooked on it! Asking for pumpkin everything.

However, I confess. I’m kinda hooked on it too. Especially anything with pumpkin and chocolate. What a wonderful combination.

These bars are just that wonderful combination..pumpkin and chocolate!

Just a few notes:

  • Be sure to use pumpkin puree..not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Your butter should be soft before using! If it’s not, your bars may not have the same soft texture.

They are a soft, cake-like bars with a great pumpkin flavor and they packed with chocolate chips. Even if you are not a pumpkin-person, you will love these.

Trust me.

If you are looking for a great,easy, go-to-pumpkin dessert for the fall and holiday season, you have found it here.  Classic chocolate chips with just the right amount of pumpkin flavor.

Get a cold glass of milk and dig in-

I really loved these Erin. I took them to a ladies meeting at church and they woofed them down...some even took extras home. Mine baked higher than yours, but tasted wonderful so I'm not sure what I did differently. I will be linking to you here when I share later in November. Thanks for another great recipe. Keep 'em coming!
