Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Cookie Bars – These scrumptiously soft and chewy pumpkin cookie bars are spiced with autumn flavours, and stuffed full of Nutella!
It’a almost October, and I am SO ready for Halloween month! Halloween is definitely one of my favourite holidays. I love everything about it – the candy, trick-or-treating (for my kid, of course 😉 ), family time, scary movies, creepy decorations, EVERYTHING.
These Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Cookie Bars would make a perfect addiction to a Halloween party. Just look at all that Nutella…
These pumpkin cookie bars are so soft and chewy, spiced with a hint of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, and stuffed full of Nutella. I drizzled extra Nutella on top to make these bars extra pretty.
Pumpkin and chocolate go wonderfully together, and it is becoming a favourite combination of mine. If you love Nutella and pumpkin, then you have to give these cookie bars a try. You’ll be so glad you did!
That melty Nutella centre…
Enjoy, and have a great week!
Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Cookie Bars
- 2 cups plain/all-purpose flour 250g

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, line an 8x8-inch pan with foil and spray with baking spray. Set aside.
Whisk together the flour, cornflour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside.
Whisk together the butter and sugar until combined. Add the egg, vanilla, and pumpkin, and mix until combined. Fold in the dry ingredients.
Press half of the dough into the prepared pan, and bake for 8 minutes. Microwave the Nutella until softened, then pour onto the cookie layer and spread out evenly. Place the remaining cookie dough on top.
Bake for a further 15 - 20 minutes until golden brown on top. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before drizzling with more Nutella and cutting into bars.
