Gooey Pumpkin Bars with Chocolate Chips & Walnuts

Gooey Pumpkin Bars

These bars are gooey, delicious but not too sweet. A perfect fall treat. The best part is how easy they are to make, simply blend in a Vita-Mix and bake. I like them best, well chilled so plan ahead, the flavour is better the next day.

These bars are dariy free, egg free, grain free and refined sugar free.
