1 tablespoon gluten-free vanilla
2 cups allergen-free chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly oil a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine pumpkin with baking powder. Add oil, sugar, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
