These Pumpkin Blondies are everything I love about fall. These bars are thick, chewy, and soft all at the same time. They have the perfect hint of pumpkin spice and chocolate in every bite!
These pumpkin blondies just might be my new favorite pumpkin recipe. If you were only going to make one more pumpkin dessert this fall, THIS would be the recipe I tell you to make. Seriously. I could NOT stop eating them. And the ingredients may already be on my shopping list so I can make them again.
So I know there is always the debate between pumpkin lovers and haters (I don’t understand the haters) but these bars I think even the non-pumpkin lovers will like. They don’t have the typical pumpkin texture you have in a pumpkin pie, or even a pumpkin bar. It’s more in between a bread and brownies… hence the blondie! The pumpkin makes them super soft!
Pumpkin Blondies ingredients
To get started you’re going to need pumpkin, flour, sugar, pumpkin spice, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, vanilla, and chocolate!
I like to line my pans with parchment paper, so I can easily pull them out to cut the bars. Plus less dishes, is always a bonus!
These bars taste best warm, but they will last up to 3 days!
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon pumpkin spice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a piece of parchment paper and place in a 9×13″ baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl sift together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy. Next mix in the egg, pumpkin puree and vanilla. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and then pour into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean. Allow bars to cool for 20 minutes in pan and then remove from pan. Cut into bars and enjoy!
