Pumpkin Maple Chocolate Chip Bars

27 Oct


With Halloween right around the corner, I have become a little crazy with orange colored desserts. Probably something to do with the sweet potatoes and pumpkin I ‘ve been using.  Today I bring you, Pumpkin Maple Chocolate Chip bars.  These were so good, that they were gone in a night and there is only two of us living in this household. That should tell you something. Enjoy!

Adapted from here 

Serving size: 9 cookies


1 cups all-purpose flour

1  teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup canola or corn oil

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon of maple extract

1 cup chocolate chips, or any chip you like


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8 by 9 inch pan. Set aside

Stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices together in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the egg and sugar until smooth and lightened in color, about 1 minute. Stop the mixer and scrape the sides of the bowl as needed during mixing. On low speed, mix the oil, pumpkin, and vanilla, maple until blended. Mix in the flour mixture to incorporate it. Mix in the chips. Pour the batter into the pan and put it in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Wait till cool then gobble them up!
