Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Bars

It is obvious that these bars will not win any beauty contests. But they will win taste contests. It's hard to believe that something so simple could be so delicious, but it's true. I took a pan of these to a family gathering, and every person ate at least two. Including "some people" who claim to not like pumpkin. After inquiring "Why don't these have frosting?" another certain person asked for a second piece before even finishing her first... So, there you have it. They are that good.

You don't even need a mixer to throw these together - they come together super quickly with just a whisk and wooden spoon.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon,

ginger, nutmeg

and cloves and whisk together. In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, and brown sugar

and whisk until combined. Then add the egg, vanilla,

pumpkin and yogurt

and stir until blended. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture,

and stir until all the ingredients are incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate chips.

Spread the batter evenly into a greased 9x13 pan.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into bars, and then devouring.
