Pumpkin season is among us and I am here for it. These pumpkin bars have a touch of zucchini, chocolate chips and walnuts in them giving them the ultimate texture and flavor. You will want this bread with your morning coffee, as a snack or dessert on those cooler fall evenings.

I love a good pumpkin spice recipe and this recipe has it all. Zucchini is in season and around every corner so I decided to add some shredded zucchini to up the veggie factor in this brea, and it keeps it nice and moist through the baking. You can bake these in a traditional loaf pan but opted to make them in a brownie pan instead. They were more similar to a fluffy think bread/bar.
What spices are needed for pumpkin spice?
Well spice is very important in this bread. You will need the following spices to achieve the perfect pumpkin spice flavor:
- ground clove
The trifecta of these spices make the bread taste more festive. Of course if you don't have them all on hand the recipe will still be equally delicious.
This spice blend is perfect for cookies, pancakes, waffles and so much more! I love to use a dash of it my coffee as well for a festive sip in the fall 🙂
