Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

These chocolate chip pumpkin bars are the perfect easy dessert for Fall!

You’ll Need:

  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree or sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 2 cups almond butter or allergy-friendly sub
  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup flour, such as oat, white, spelt, sorghum, or even almond
  • 1 cup sugar, unrefined or keto sub if desired
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or additional cinnamon)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or more as desired


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment.
  2. Stir all ingredients together to form a batter.
  3. Add more milk of choice if needed to achieve a cookie-dough-like batter – the amount will depend on the flour and type of nut butter you use.
  4. Smooth the batter into the pan.
  5. If desired, press more chocolate chips on top. Bake 15-20 minutes on the center rack.
  6. They’ll look way underdone – let them cool for at least an hour, during which time they’ll firm up, and they firm up even more overnight if covered loosely on the counter.
