Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups dark chocolate chunks

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with baking spray; set aside.

Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and oats together in a large bowl; set aside.

Whisk the melted butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg yolk, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix everything together until completely combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks.

Press the dough into the prepared baking pan, using a spatula to level the top.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with melted chocolate and/or crumbs instead of dough.

Remove the bars from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Slice into 24 servings.
