Let’s get started!

chocolate chip pumpkin bar ingredients


How to make pumpkin chocolate chip bars

First, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Next, prepare a baking pan by lining a 9×13 pan with parchment paper and then buttering the parchment paper. You can also spray it with non stick cooking spray.

While your oven is heating up, mix together the dry ingredients( flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice) in a small mixing bowl and set aside.

Next, in a separate large bowl, add the eggs, pumpkin and oil and mix them well.

Next, stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until combined. Be careful to not over mix.

Once they’re combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

If you prefer, you can use your stand mixer to mix everything together, but it isn’t a necessity! I usually mix these together by hand.

After all of the ingredients are combined, spread batter into a 9X13 prepared pan and bake for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or with soft moist crumbs.

I use these silicone spatulas to help spread the mixture quickly and even in the pan.

Lastly, let the pumpkin bars cool completely before cutting. Usually I can get 36 bars out of one pan.

Can I use regular size chocolate chips?

Yes, you can use regular size chocolate chips. I prefer the mini chocolate chips so that the chocolate doesn’t over power the pumpkin flavor.

However, the regular ones will work if that’s all you have on hand.

Variation Ideas:

My family loves this easy chocolate chip pumpkin bars and there are tons of ways that you can mix it up to make it your own!

  • Use White chocolate chips if you like those more than milk chocolate.
  • Top the bars with cream cheese or buttercream frosting to add even more sweetness! After the bars are completely cooled, top them with homemade cream cheese frosting! It is so good!
  • Add in some oatmeal for a completely different texture!

How to Store:

Store the leftovers in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

These also freeze great! I stack the bars between parchment paper in a freezer bag so that they don’t stick together and they will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
