Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

You know fall has arrived when pumpkin recipes start popping up everywhere and you get the urge to run to the nearest store, pick up a can of pumpkin and bake a delicious fall treat.  I love pumpkin and can eat it in just about anything.  I also love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate, so these bars definitely hit the spot!

These bars are quick to whip up and are a delicious treat for any fall afternoon.

Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart http://www.marthastewart.com/336431/pumpkin-chocolate-chip-squares

Ingredients:

2 Cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

1 Cup butter, at room temperature

1 1/4 Cup sugar

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together dry ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside.  Cream butter and sugar in a stand mixer.  Add vanilla and egg until mixed in.  Add pumpkin and mix until well combined.  The mixture will look lumpy.  Gradually add dry ingredients until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Spread into 9×13 greased pan.  Bake for 35 minutes until golden brown.  Cool and cut bars after they are cool.

Makes 30 bars.
