Gluten and Nut Free Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Squares

Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The colors, flavors, and temperature outside is perfect! I love putting on my boots and coat and walking through the crispy leaves. I feel cleansed as the cool air fills my lungs. Nothing beats the Fall! I decided to whip up a sweet pumpkin dessert for my family and they vanished overnight!! We devoured them. These squares have a light and fluffy, cakey and pillowy consistency. The hint of Autumn spice warms you as you take your first bite. These would be great with warm apple cider. Maybe that will be a future recipe! Enjoy this sweet cakey treat this weekend. And as always, let me know what you think.
