Hard to believe it's our final Secret Recipe Club of 2014. This year has just flown by for me. Seems I say that every year any more!! Group B of SRC will be taking a break for the month of January! Perfect for me because we're going on a cruise! Warm weather vacations are the only thing that helps me get through these cold Nebraska winters!
I was lucky this month to be assigned the blog From Grandma Loy's Kitchen. It was so hard to decide what to make. She has an outstanding variety of recipes to choose from. My recipe choice ended up coming down to a recipe to use that partial can of pumpkin in my fridge, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars! Have you tried pumpkin with chocolate chips? It's one of my favorite new flavor combinations! Nice this recipe only calls for 1/4 cup of oil and makes a delicious, moist bar.

1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate or other flavor baking chips

Place eggs in a large mixing bowl. Beat well. Add pumpkin, oil, and
sugar. Mix thoroughly. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking
soda, and salt. Mix well. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix
until just moistened. Stir in chips. Spread in an ungreased
15x10x1-inch baking pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly

Cool. Cut into bars. The recipe says 36 cookies, but I easily got 48.
