Fall brings to mind Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkin pie but there are so many more dishes that serve up that great pumpkin flavor. I have been in a pumpkin baking mood and my house is has some delicious aromas coming out of the kitchen. Wish there was smell-o-vision and I could share it with y’all.

So far, I have baked up a Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies, Pumpkin Spice Cookies and, a little something more on the healthier side, a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.

Not to be outdone, I just had to make these super easy and delicious Pumpkin Spice Bars with chocolate chips. The chips are totally optionally but who doesn’t want to add chocolate to anything and everything? Just look at how easy this recipe is.
