Re-sharing this post because it’s an annual staple for us and I know many of you love it too! These Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars are SO good and I usually have all the ingredients for this healthy fall dessert on hand and ready to go..
Let the onslaught of all things pumpkin continue.
I feel like this year a lot of people are being good when it comes to pumpkin. You know, trying not to act *too* excited about their arrival. (It could also totally be the fact that many of us are still experiencing true summer weather.) And then, there are people like me who have already enjoyed many PSLs, and upon seeing the rack of cans full of pumpkins at Trader Joe’s, I ran towards them in slow motion, with my arms wide open and a creepy smile on my face.
I just can’t help it.
While the Pilot isn’t crazy about pumpkins at all, I gave birth to two pumpkin-obsessed little friends who share my enthusiasm for this festive pumpkin.
Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars
This afternoon, I decided to embark on my first pumpkin baking adventure of the season, with Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars. It was a variation on my beloved flourless blueberry breakfast bake (recipe is at the book!), and uses creamy almond butter and egg as a base. The result: a healthy, dense, buttery, perfectly spiced and sweet pumpkin dessert or snack. It’s also amazing in the morning with a little butter and a side of scrambled eggs.
Here is this healthy pumpkin recipe if you want to try it!
