Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 eggs

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan. Stir the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, stir together the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract; beat in the eggs one at a time with a spoon. Gradually add the flour mixture, and stir the batter until it’s evenly moistened. Divide the batter in half in two separate bowls.
  • Into one bowl of batter, blend the cocoa powder and chocolate chips. In the second bowl of batter, stir in the pumpkin puree, walnuts, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
  • Spread 1/2 of the chocolate batter into the bottom of the prepared baking pan and follow with 1/2 of the pumpkin batter. Repeat the layers, ending with a pumpkin layer, and drag a kitchen knife or small spatula gently through the layers in a swirling motion, to create a marbled appearance.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pan, cut into squares, and serve.

The combination of rich pumpkin flavor and a hint of pumpkin pie spice added a unique twist to traditional brownies, creating a delectable and satisfying treat.

To make the pumpkin brownies, I started by combining melted butter, sugar, and pumpkin puree in a mixing bowl. I whisked them together until they were well blended and smooth.

Next, I added eggs, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice to the mixture, whisking until everything was evenly incorporated. The aroma of the spices filled the air, making me even more excited to taste the final result.

In a separate bowl, I combined flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. I gradually added this dry mixture to the pumpkin mixture, stirring until just combined. It’s important not to overmix the batter to ensure a fudgy texture.

I poured the batter into a greased baking pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula. Then, I popped it into the preheated oven and let it bake for the recommended time.

As the brownies baked, the enticing scent of pumpkin and chocolate filled the kitchen, building up my anticipation. Once the brownies were done, I removed them from the oven and let them cool completely in the pan.

When it was finally time to take a bite, I was not disappointed. The pumpkin brownies were incredibly moist and fudgy, with a burst of pumpkin flavor in every bite. The subtle spices added a warm and comforting touch that perfectly complemented the rich chocolate.
