Is anyone sick of pumpkin yet? I’m not!
But, the Pumpkin Spice Latte was available in August, so some might be done with pumpkin flavor!
If you are like me and plan to make pumpkin bread for the foreseeable future, then these pumpkin chocolate chip bars are for you. They have a cake-like texture but are easy to eat one-handed while you type, craft, help with homework, or make dinner.
Pumpkin is a great source of nutrients including calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
It is also a good source of fiber and great for boosting your immune system. Pumpkin is often used in sweet recipes (like this one!) but it is delicious in savory forms too. I typically make these bars with white whole wheat flour, but they can be made with regular all-purpose flour or a 1-1 gluten-free flour. (I wouldn’t use almond or chickpea flour here, as both will make the bars dense and a bit greasy.)
If chocolate is a trigger for your GERD or acid reflux, swap out the chocolate in these pumpkin bars for some pecan pieces or carob chips! Otherwise, the ratio of chocolate chips per serving should be just right to satisfy a sweet craving without hesitation.
I hope you enjoy it!
