How to Make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars
If you’ve made brownies or blondies before, you’ll find Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars are super easy to make. But if you’re new to the world of brownies or blondies, after making this simple recipe, you’ll be hooked!
To start, you’ll want to add all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Next, stir in sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. These ingredients increase the flavour of the pumpkin, making it sweeter and more savoury.
In a smaller bowl, you’ll combine pumpkin puree, apple sauce, yogurt, eggs and vanilla. These ingredients give a pumpkin flavour and add the perfect amount of moisture to the bars, making them fudgy and tasty. When it is mixed together, pour the pumpkin mixture to the flour one and stir to combine.
Now comes the chocolate. Yes, that ooey-gooey melt-in-your-mouth chocolate that takes tasty bars from being good to being amazing. Once the chocolate is mixed in, add the batter to a nonstick baking pan.
Before the Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars are ready to bake, it’s time for more chocolate chips. That’s right! These bars not only have chocolate throughout, but they also have extra chocolate on top.
Now, let your oven do its magic. After 35 minutes in the oven, your bars are ready to enjoy!
