Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars - Vegan + Gluten Free



One of my favorite, go-to desserts is my Secretly Healthy Cookies. They are delicious, healthy, easy, and did I mention DELICIOUS!

But once fall arrived I was looking for way to incorporate pumpkin into recipes that I knew my family would enjoy. This led to a twist on my favorite cookies.

And if those cookies weren't simple enough already, I went a step further by pouring it all in a baking dish and making them into bars. Genius, yes?!

I can tell you all day long how much I liked them, but I feel the most compelling reason to try this recipe is the words of my 4 year old: “This is very good! You did a VERY good job with these!”

And if he likes them chances are you will too!



Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

2 cups cooked chickpeas/garbanzo beans 

1 cup oats

½ cup organic pumpkin puree

1 cup coconut sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon cloves

½ cup dairy free mini chocolate chips, plus more for the top

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a food processor add all ingredients, except the chocolate, and blend well.

Add chocolate chips and stir.

Pour batter into 9x9 baking dish and smooth the top until even.

{Optional} Sprinkle a handful more of chocolate chips onto top and lightly press down.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

My whole family enjoyed these very much and I hope that yours does too!
