Ingredients:

For the Crust:

½ cup rolled oats
‪½ cup brown sugar
4 ounces butter, melted
‪½ teaspoon salt
‪½ teaspoon cinnamon

For the Filling:
‪1 cup canned pumpkin
‪1 cup cream cheese, room temperature

‪½ teaspoon salt

For the Streusel:

‪¾ cup chocolate chips

‪Directions:

‪Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Combine all of the crust ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Combine mixture with the back of a fork until crumbly. Press into a 9×9 inch pan and bake for 15 minutes.

‪While the crust is baking, combine all of the filling ingredients in the bowl of a stand-up mixer (hand mixer is also fine) and mix on medium speed for about 1-2 minutes; set aside.

‪Combine all of the streusel ingredients except for the butter in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Add the cold chunks of butter and work them into the dry ingredients using your fingers or a pastry cutter until the mixture is crumbly.

‪Once the crust has finished baking, remove from oven. Pour filling mixture over the hot crust.

‪Place chocolate chips in a small bowl. Mix with about 2 teaspoons of flour. Transfer chips to a sieve and shake off any excess flour. This step ensures the chocolate won’t sink to the bottom of the bars.

‪Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the filling. Using your fingers, gently break apart the streusel crumbles evenly over the chocolate chips to create an even layer.

‪Bake for 30-35 minutes until streusel is set. Let cool completely on wire rack. Bars are best served cold. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and dust with cinnamon.
