chocolate chip pumpkin cake

Recipe courtesy of St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center®

Yields 1 bar



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup pecans, very finely chopped
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 15-ounce can 100% pure pumpkin
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup low-fat milk
  • ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°F). Lightly oil or coat a 15-x-10-x-1-inch rimmed baking or jelly roll pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, pecans, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, pumpkin, oil and milk until blended. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes before slicing into 30, 2-x-2 ½-inch bars.
