Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

Okay so the cookies in the picture aren’t bar cookies.  They aren’t even from the same recipe.  But my camera is not working  so I thought this photo would be better than none at all.  You will have to imagine soft, cake like bars with that pumpkin-chocolate goodness.  Sounds good doesn’t it?

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

Ingredients:

2 eggs of equivalent substitute

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup stevia sweetener such as Truvia (R) or Stevia in the Raw (R)

1/2 cup agave nectar

1 Tablespoon molasses

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free baking flour)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips (dark chocolate is really good with pumpkin)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a 9 x 13 baking pan by spraying with pan spray.
  3. Lightly beat eggs.  Add stevia, agave and molasses and pumpkin.
  4. Stir to blend well.
  5. Add cinnamon, baking powder, soda and flour, stirring as you add.
  6. Finally stir in chocolate chips.
  7. Pour into baking pan smoothing out the batter with a spoon. Bake 30-40 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Cut into bars or squares and enjoy!

It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

Oh yes it is.  But at my house every day is cookie day and one of our favorites is chocolate chip.  I live with a Cookie Monster.  Whenever Bob walks by freshly baked c0okies cooling on the counter at least a few get devoured.  I usually have homemade cookies on hand, at least in the freezer.

Of course they are gluten free and I do try to health them up a bit, but we’re not talking about nasty tasting “health cookies” here.  These are real cookies and they taste good.

So in honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day let’s revisit my Chocolate Chip Trail Mix Cookie recipe.  Enjoy!
