The original title for this recipe was Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies but a lot of comments said it was more cake-like than brownie-like. So, I decided to bake them in a smaller pan to make the bar a little thicker and what I ended up with was a delicous pumpkin snack cake. YUM!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Snack Cake
Recipe adapted (size & baking time) from Pennies on a Platter

2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a separate medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, spices, salt and brown sugar. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until thoroughly incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.
