Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

I was restless and bored one night and couldn't sleep so I decided to bake something. After raiding the kitchen this is what I threw together. I love that it has a mild sweetness and isn't over powering. So, if you prefer really sweet things I suggest you add more sugar. I also love how light these are.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large bowl add baking mix, oats, baking powder, chocolate chips, and the tablesppon of pumpkin pie spice. Stir until combined.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together pumpkin, teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, egg, milk, and sugar until smooth.
  4. Stir in pecans.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until combined.
  6. Spoon minture into greased 9 X 13inch pan and bake for 25 mins or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Allow "cake" to cool slightly and transfer from pan to wire rack to continue cooling.
  8. When cool slice width wise into 1/2 inch strips and then in half length wise.
  9. Place evenly on cookie sheet(s) and bake for an additonal 10-15 minutes
  10. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Dust with powdered sugar.
  11. Allow the cookies to cool completely and enjoy!

These bars have a lovely flavor. They are quite cakey and moist and bursting with chocolately and pumpkiny goodness. Mine took more like 30-35 minutes for the first bake so that they were not undone in the middle. I think next time I might just bake them a bit longer and skip the second bake, then cut 'em and dust 'em,
