    Sara! These look delicious! I’ve been looking for a treat to make with pumpkin and these might just be it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Margie says

    These were good but I was expecting more like a crunchy cookie bar. It has the texture of cake instead. I added half raisins and half chocolate chips.

  3. carole says

    I made these because they looked delicious! The batter was certainly not runny nor did the pumpkin look “curdled”. I double checked the ingredients and quantities and followed the directions carefully. I am an experienced baker as well.

    They turned out like a cake bar – not super moist and chewy as the picture shows. They taste good – just not like the picture shows.

    Any feedback?



    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Carole,
      Not sure! They definitely are cake like (the curdled bit comes before you add the flour), but not sure why they wouldn’t come out looking like the picture. Maybe some oven temp or elevation differences? Not sure! Sorry!

  4. PJ says

    I don’t care for the combination of cinnamon and chocolate but I can SO picture these made with vanilla and/or butterscotch chips!!!! Or Caramel bits!!!

  5. Gina says

    I was a little apprehensive to try this recipe due to a previous comment I read. This was an easy recipe to make and my bars turned out just as pictured. I was not sure if I was going to like the chocolate chips, but I was happy I tried it. I would make this recipe again! Thank you!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Thanks so much for letting us know! I’m glad you liked them and you found them easy (and tasty)! 🙂

  6. Molly says

    Made these today, mt boyfriends exact worda were “Where has this been life!” -so good!! Thanks for sharing :). Came out just like the picture.

  7. Anne says

    Love this recipe! Wanted to bake something with a touch of fall flavor and this turned out perfect! Mine like looks just like your picture, moist, chewy and tastes great ! My knitting group will love this treat this afternoon!😋

  8. Nicole Michael says

    OH MY GOODNESS! These are AMAZING! Super moist, the texture is wonderful and the chocolate chips are perfect with the pumpkin. Made these for a church function and had to make another batch for my husband and I because we are obsessed!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Mark,
      There actually is a print button right under the photo in the recipe card! Super easy – prints just the recipe card with one photo!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      If it’s just a couple days, I don’t think you’d even need to freeze. I personally haven’t tried freezing them, but I’ve done it with other baked good and I bet you could.

  9. Kaitlyn says

    Hi! I’m interested to try these for work–i’m in Innkeeper at a small bed and breakfast. I just need to know–can I freeze these? We bake during the week, freeze, and take out for our guests to enjoy over the weekend. Thanks!!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Kaitlyn – sorry! Just saw this! I haven’t tried to freeze these (they get eaten too quickly). BUT, I think it would work. Let us know if you try/tried it!

  10. Mary says

    Delicious! Solid bars. Not too sweet. We made them gluten free and used Namaste flour and I could not tell at all! A keeper!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Ooh – that is so good to know about a gluten free version! I’m going to have to try that! Thanks for sharing, Mary!

  11. Katie says

    I pulled the bars out of the oven after 30 min and when I put a fork in it to see if it was done, it came out with some cake on it so I put it in an additional 3 min. Still came out with cake on the fork. The edges are brown so I’m thinking it’s done?? Do you think so? I hope so! My house smells amazing!

  12. Kelsey says

    Made these for a work potluck and they were a hit. They turned out moist and delicious, and looked just like the picture! So easy to make but everyone thought there were really something difficult. Perfect fall treat!

  13. Ally says

    Omg I made these a couple days ago and they are soooooo good! And super easy!! So happy I found this recipe!! Thank you!!

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Beth,
      I keep them in the fridge, but I’m just sort of like that with most baked goods – we even keep our bread in the fridge. So, I might not sure that helps! 😉

  14. Chivon says

    So delicious! Moist and sweet and just perfect combo of pumpkin and choc chips . Won’t last long I’m sure 🙂 thanks so much . Delicious 😋

  15. Catherine says

    These are soo good! I made them today and my husband, who doesn’t like pumpkin except for pumpkin pie, enjoyed them! Thanks for the recipe!

  16. Jessica says

    Planning on making these tomorrow! I was thinking of using white chocolate chips – any thoughts? Not sure if I should try it! Thanks 🙂

    • Sara @MomEndeavors says

      Hi Jessica! Let us know if you tried it! I’m not a big white chocolate fan, so that wouldn’t be my 1st choice! But would love to hear if it turned out!

      • Jessica says

        Yes I did try them with white chocolate and they turned out amazing!!! I took them to a party and got tons of compliments. Will definitely be making these again 🙂

  17. Amy says

    Delicious… this recipe is definitely a keeper! I had a happy accident with the batch I just made – I completely forgot to add in the baking soda and they came out having a brownie-like consistency. I just might omit it on purpose next time 🙂

  18. Kat says

    Anyone try making these as muffins?

    Made the bar version a couple of times and got lots of compliments. I added chopped pecans to mine to give it a little texture.

  19. Joy says

    Oh my goodness! We are not pumpkin eaters but we are NOW with this recipe. Thank you for sharing it.
    Sooooo delicious! mmmmmmmmm

  20. Mary Smith says

    I made these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bars for a party and came home with an empty plate. They were delicious! I put cream cheese glaze on top but it certainly wasn’t needed. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  21. Lisa says

    I made these as a thank you for the radiation therapists who have been treating my breast cancer. Had to try one, they looked so yummy, and they are! Even my husband, who is not a big chocolate fan, thought they were terrific.
