Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

Happy October!! This truly may be my very favorite month of the year. Each day brings a coolness, a refreshing start, a beautiful landscape, and so many fun things to do. I’m ready for pumpkin patches, Halloween movies, bright colors, and all things fall recipes.

Jerod laughs at me on the regular for my obsession with all things pumpkin pie spice, and today’s recipe is no different. To celebrate the first day of October, let’s break out the pumpkin and chocolate chips, and make our homes smell absolutely amazing as this sweet treat bakes!
