The delicious flavor of pumpkin combined with chocolate in rich, chewy, fudgy brownies? That’s what these amazing pumpkin brownies are all about!
It’s on. Pumpkin season that is. I’m ready for it. I mean come on, it’s vegetable dessert, so it’s practically health food! Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but I won’t question it if you don’t. Pumpkin brownies anyone?
This simple, from scratch pumpkin brownie recipe comes together easily. We are talking maybe five more minutes than it would take to make a box mix, and that’s if you are moving really slow. Like my early morning slow. Which is pretty darn slow. 🙂 So basically what I’m saying is that these are just as easy as making brownies from a box, but so much better.

Delicious and easy pumpkin brownies from scratch in no time!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 6 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chopped
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 4 large eggs at room temperature
- 1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips for top optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9 baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Spray bottom of lined pan with non-stick oil.
In a heavy pot on low heat, melt butter and chocolate, stirring until smooth and melted. Remove from heat and set aside.
With an electric mixer, combine sugar and eggs and beat until very well combined. Add in flour, baking powder and salt and stir until combined, but to not overmix.
Divide egg, sugar and flour mixture evenly into two bowls. To one bowl add melted chocolate mixture and stir until combined. In the other bowl, add pumpkin, oil and spices to the mixture and stir until combined.
Layer pumpkin and brownie batters into the 9x9 pan, and use a knife to swirl the batters together. If adding chocolate chips to the top, sprinkle on top of the batter. Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack prior to serving.
