Try this delightfully different brownie recipe with pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cocoa, and chocolate chips. The pumpkin flavor is not overwhelming. The recipe is quite fast and easy to make. Use canned pumpkin puree or your own homemade pumpkin puree.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 12 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree or homemade pumpkin puree
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips (or substitute 2/3 cup regular chocolate chips)


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9- x 9-inch baking pan with nonstick foil or spray with vegetable oil.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and salt until combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat brown sugar, pumpkin puree, all of the eggs, and oil on medium speed until combined. Reduce mixer to low, add dry ingredients, and beat until well-mixed. Fold in chocolate chips by hand.

Pour evenly into prepared pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until it tests done in the center with a wooden pick. Cool cocoa pumpkin brownies to room temperature before cutting to serve.

Yield: about 15 servings

If you like pumpkin you'll love these!, Member cupcakekitten

These were a cinch to make, I made them in less then 20 min prep time. I added like 2/3 cup of chocolate chips rather then 1/3 because I love chocolate and I thought it would help balance the pumpkin taste, it did. The chips made them kinda gooey so don't cut them until they are cooled. This is a great recipe! I highly recommend it. Sorry they were devoured before I could take a picture.
