Pumpkin Spice Brownies
These fudge-like brownies are rich and delicious with the pumpkin and spices rounding out the flavor just perfectly! Nobody will ever guess they aren’t filled with all sorts of fat and processed junk.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and lightly spray an 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place all brownie ingredients, with the exception of the chocolate chips, in a food processor or blender and process until smooth and well blended. Transfer to a bowl and fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Spread brownie batter into baking dish. (See Notes)
  4. Using a blender, combine pumpkin ingredients until smooth.
  5. Pour pumpkin evenly over brownie and swirl using the handle of a spoon or whatever works best for you, incorporating the brownie batter and pumpkin together without actually stirring it up.
  6. Bake uncovered 45 minutes. Cool before slicing.
Recipe Notes

If you want some pumpkin as a filling in addition to a swirl on top, spread half the brownie batter into the pan, cover with half of the pumpkin, and top with the rest of the brownie batter.  This will take some finesse as you want to keep them as separated and layered as possible.  Top with remaining pumpkin and swirl. The other way is easier, but I love the way these look when you slice into them. PumpkinSwirlBrownies4
