Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Pumpkin is up there in my top 3 baking ingredients!

Pumpkin
Beans
Protein Powder

You won’t need any beans for these fabulous Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars though.

Using pumpkin in baked goods is a great substitute for oil and butter.  It will keep your goodies soft, moist, and even add some nutritional value!

I use MTS Nutrition Pumpkin Pie protein for extra pumpkin fun, but you can also use vanilla, cinnamon, peanut butter, chocolate, or almost any other flavor of protein powder!

You could just eat one bar…

But the entire batch is what I consider one serving! 

Yup, all six bars come in under 400 calories.

I love the chocolate and pumpkin combo, but these are also great with nuts, raisins, and white chocolate chips!

Give them a try. I can almost guarantee you will love them as much as I do!

  1. Are these supposed to have actual pumpkin in them? I was surprised when I didn’t see it in the ingredients list, especially with the beginning of the post talking about baking with it! 😛
