Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

I have been experimenting with so many pumpkin recipes lately and I need more days in the week to share them all with you. These pumpkin chocolate chip bars are the latest, and they are fantastic!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

They have the most amazing colour and are not too sweet because they use puree and not pie filling. I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice, so I used a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon instead.

These parchment paper sheets are perfect for baking cookies and bars! For bars, just cut them to fit the pan. No sticking and (hopefully) no burning, plus easy clean up.
