Quick & Easy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

The leaves are starting to change colors where we live, and it's seriously feeling like fall! That makes my heart SO happy - I actually squealed with delight today seeing them and scared Charlotte by accident haha!

If you haven't noticed, autumn is by far my very favorite season. It's so cozy, and such a perfect time for fun fall baking recipes, snuggling up and watching movies...I could wax romantic about it all day long!

If you're looking for a super quick and easy fall baking recipe for this weekend, these pumpkin bars are it! Soft and cakey with just enough spice, these are guaranteed to be gone faster than you may like to admit. I'm such a sucker for pumpkin and chocolate recipes, aren't you?

These delicious pumpkin bars take 10 minutes max to whip up, and 30 minutes to bake. So in under an hour you could be enjoying scrumptious, gooey, melted chocolatey pumpkin bar goodness. No excuses, just make them! (And if you're looking for a super delicious cake, check out my Pumpkin Caramel Layer Cake recipe!)

Makes 24 Bars


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F,. Grease a 9x13 pan with butter, and line it with parchment paper with a small overhang for super easy removal of the bars.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, flour through salt. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter through pumpkin. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and combine with a spatula. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the dough into the prepared baking dish, using the spatula to make sure it's evenly spread. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
