Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

Clean Eating Pumpkin Bars

Watch the step-by-step video here.

These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars are made from coconut flour and use no refined flours or sugars (except for the ones that may be in your chocolate chips, but hey! that’s still pretty awesome in my book).

They have a strong pumpkin flavor and the texture is like the filling from a pumpkin pie (just a little bit firmer).  The hardest part of this recipe is allowing the bars to cool completely before cutting into them.

In this recipe I used canned pumpkin, but if you want to make your own homemade pumpkin puree, you can learn how to that here.
