Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

For some reason this season, I have decided that all I want to eat is comfort food and pie: Pot Pie, Shepherd’s Pie, Chocolate Pie…really, any kind of pie will do. So in an effort to NOT eat terribly and gain 15 pounds this winter, I’ve researched some recipes from my favorite “treat lady”, Juli from PaleOMG.  These treats were amazing! They are so delicious and moist, and they aren’t horrible for you.  (But please don’t misinterpret them for a substitution for vegetables!) They are definitely a better option than some holiday cookies bought in the bread section of your local grocery store.

These in particular are among my favorite of the treats I’ve tried from her blog! Here’s how to make them:
