Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Starting off October with these PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BARS!!

My first blog post…SO EXCITING!!! and of course we start off with something sweet!!

I woke up this morning with some inspiration to bake! Being the start of the Jewish New Year, I wanted to bake something sweet and healthy to start off the year!

These were not only delicious, moist & sweet but guilt-free! I personally enjoyed too many pieces with a cup of coffee!! YUMMMMM

So this is how I made them…

INGREDIENTS:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 10 oz Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 c Almond Butter
  • 2 Eggs

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c Coconut Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon

Other Ingredients:

  • Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

 

STEPS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray an 8×8 inch baking pan with coconut oil spray.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients all together in a big bowl. Mix until smooth.
  3. Add all the dry ingredients into a separate bowl and mix together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix together very well.
  5. Fold in some chocolate chips into the mix. As much as you like! I added a lot because who doesn’t love chocolate chips?!?
  6. Pour the mix into the pan and top with some coconut shreds. Bake for ~20 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Once finished, make sure it is completely baked by sticking a toothpick in it and making sure nothing sticks to the toothpick.
  8. Let it cool.
  9. Once cooled, melt some dark chocolate chips and drizzle on top! (Once again, who doesn’t love some extra chocolate!)
  10. Finally…..ENJOY 🙂
