Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars Are The Perfect Fall Treat

These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars are a really delicious fall treat. I love pumpkin and get really excited when the little pumpkins show up in the grocery store. This can be made with freshly roasted pumpkin or canned pumpkin puree. I’ve made it both ways and it is really tasty either way.

Roasting your own pumpkin is really fun and it leaves you with some seeds to roast as well. If you decide to roast your own pumpkin, see my fresh pumpkin puree directions for exactly how to do that.

Every time I make these, everyone absolutely loves them. They are really quick to make and great for sharing with friends and family. Fall is the perfect time of year to enjoy these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars and they would go great with a hot pumpkin spice latte.
