Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

Chocolate-Chip-Pumpkin-Bars

I'm obsessed with this recipe and seriously have been daydreaming about it...It's sooo gooey and moist and I highly recommend eating it warm with a big ol scoop of ice cream {we love coconut bliss!}.

If you love pumpkin + cookies + chocolate your dreams are about to come true. But don't just take my word for it...RUN to the store to grab these ingredients and make them for the perfect Friday night treat. And of course, the best part, they are sweetened with coconut sugar which has a lower glycemic index. This is one of my go-to swaps I use when making recipes that have regular white sugar.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup pure pumpkin
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tbs coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 and line 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper. 
2. Combine dry ingredients, minus the chocolate chips, in a mixing bowl. 
3. Add in the wet ingredients and mix until combined. 
4. Add in chocolate chips.
