Pumpkin Brownies

I love the Fall season because of pumpkins: pumpkin patches, pumpkin pie, pumpkin decorating! So, I found a scrumptious, spice-y, and chocolate-y recipe that’s perfect for the upcoming season. Pumpkin baked goods are delicious, but with a kick of chocolate?? Even better! So, here is a recipe I found for pumpkin brownies!


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

I did not have cloves and nutmeg, so I used 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice instead.



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • 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, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.


  • Spread 1/2 of the chocolate batter into the bottom of each baking cup, and follow with 1/2 of the pumpkin batter.
  • Repeat the layers, ending with a pumpkin layer, and drag a kitchen knife gently through the layers in a swirling motion, to create a marbled appearance.


  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes and until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan and serve.


These delightful treats are just how I imagined them. The brownie portion is sweet and chocolatey while the pumpkin section is aromatic from the spices. They make a great combo and a perfect dessert for the Fall season.

So, enjoy baking these pumpkin brownies; they really satisfy your chocolatey and “pumkin-y” cravings!

With Beauty, Grace, and Love
