How to make Sheet Pan Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Using parchment paper, line a 13 x 18-inch sheet pan and grease with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Step 3: Beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl for about 2 minutes using an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth.

Step 4: To the bowl, add the eggs followed by the pumpkin, molasses, almond milk, and vanilla. Continue to beat on low speed until well blended.

Step 5: Over the wet mixture, sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well until just combined.

Step 6: Fold in the chocolate chips until just incorporated.

Step 7: Onto the baking sheet, evenly spread the dough. Spread it out using a greased offset icing spatula or a dinner knife. Make sure to evenly spread the dough into every corner.

Step 8: On top of the dough, sprinkle the mini chips.

Step 9: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven when done and transfer on a wire rack before cutting into bars.
