Sometimes you really just need a blondie brownie you know? This recipe has you covered with fall twist!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla, flax, sugar and pumpkin puree. Stir in the rest of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips and cocoa powder.
Once the dry ingredients are mixed into the wet, fold in the chocolate chips.
Take half the dough out and set it aside. (I put it in my baking dish.) Stir in the cocoa powder into the remaining dough until well combined. Add the removed dough back into the bowl with the chocolate dough. Using your hand, lightly fold both the pumpkin dough and the chocolate dough into each other. *You should only fold it 2 or 3 times.
Press the dough into the 8x8 baking dish before baking it in your preheated oven for 25-27 minutes.
Let it cool completely before cutting it into 12-16 bars!
