Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Pumpkin chocolate chip bars are one of my new favorite pumpkin recipes. They are super easy to make and of course delicious!

I am one of those people that love EVERYTHING pumpkin so when fall comes around I am a happy girl. When I lived in San Francisco there was a bakery that made pumpkin chocolate chip bread during the fall and winter. I would stop every morning before work and get a piece. Yum!

The flavor of these bars reminds me of that bakery bread. I love the warm pumpkin spice flavor of these bars in combination with chocolate chips. These bars are made with a yellow cake mix so they have more of a cake texture.
