"These yummy bars are a good way to use up any extra pumpkin you may have leftover from fall baking or an excuse to open another can! I had mini cinnamon chips, so 1/2 cup was plenty. If you have the full-size ones, you'll probably want more. Just sprinkle as much as you want over the top. If you don't have cinnamon chips at all, try butterscotch chips!"

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil with about 1 inch hanging over the edges for 'handles'. Spray foil with cooking spray.
Beat brown sugar and butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; beat in 2 eggs until combined. Beat 1 more egg and vanilla extract into brown sugar mixture until combined. Stir flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl; stir into brown sugar mixture until batter is smooth.
Beat cream cheese in a separate bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; beat in remaining 1 egg until just combined. Beat pumpkin puree into cream cheese mixture; stir in pumpkin pie spice.
Spread 2/3 the batter into the prepared baking pan. Drop spoonfuls of pumpkin mixture over batter; top with spoonfuls of remaining 1/3 batter and swirl together with a butter knife. Sprinkle cinnamon chips over batter-pumpkin mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until blondies are lightly browned on the edges, about 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
