Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars – A quick and easy cookie bar perfect for Fall!
Every time September rolls around I get so excited to make all the pumpkin things! I definitely have my favorite pumpkin recipes on here, but these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars rank right at the top of my pumpkin recipe list!
They are super easy, and a pumpkin and chocolate combination is just so darn good! I’ve made them over on Instagram here.
These are the perfect fall cookie bars! Technically, they are a little more cake-like in texture. The recipe makes a 13 x 9 pan sized recipe. With this size, I thought I’d have a lot left to freeze after sharing with others, but it actually got gobbled up very quickly! Everyone loved them including my 14 month old! It’s official! He’s a pumpkin-lover like his momma! So I guess I’ll be baking another batch for Thanksgiving too.
These would be perfect to deliver to friends or teachers this Fall as well!

Petro @ The Seaman Mom says
I love the look of these! I never though chocolate and pumpkin would make such a great combination/ Great recipe!
In the receipe it says 8oz pumpkin can but in the directions it doesn’t say when to add…???
Hi Courtney! Thanks for catching that! You add it in with the eggs and the vanilla. Have a great day!
Sharon Barnhill says
Is the 8oz can pumpkin correct? Couldn’t find an 8 oz can and the bars were very dry. Great taste and flavor but dry. Will save and use with vanilla or coffee ice cream.
Elana A Pyralis says
I would love to make these…but I can’t find how much “2 sticks of butter” is… Is that 1 cup? 1/2 a cup?
Hi Elana! 2 sticks = 1 cup
