3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.

In large bowl, beat together sugar and butter at medium speed until fluffy. Reduce speed to low and beat in oil, molasses, vanilla, and pumpkin until evenly incorporated. Beat in flour mixture and chocolate chips just until blended.

Spread batter in large bar pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool and cut into squares.
