I wasn’t kidding when I said that pumpkin was my go-to ingredient in the Fall -- in the past week I’ve made three more recipes with pumpkin as the main ingredient, and still have a list of pumpkin recipes that gets longer every day: pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin scones, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin soup…I’ll be sure to post about a few of these in November, when it is still pumpkin season.
Today’s recipe is for pumpkin chocolate chip bars, an extremely quick and easy one bowl dessert that you can whip up in record time to get a quick pumpkin fix. If you’re looking for a fluffy piece of pumpkin cake, this is not your recipe (but this is). These are almost like pumpkin blondies, dense and chewy and full of pumpkin flavor, not to mention packed with chocolate. I’d seen the pumpkin/chocolate combination in quite a few recipes on different food blogs, but hadn’t been sold on it until I tried these – the semi-sweet chocolate complements the cinnamon and ginger nicely and adds another layer of flavor to this dessert. Enjoy everyone!
