The Best Pumpkin Spice Brownies You Will Ever Bake

By Rachelmariestone @rachel_m_stone

When did pumpkin spice everything become such a THING? I don't remember it happening, but that doesn't mean I don't still love the warm and heady spices that go into pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie itself? Not such a fan.

Pumpkin spices + real pumpkin + chocolate? Yes please.

That's what we have going on here: chewy pumpkin spice 'brownies.' They're actually more like blondies with pumpkin, dotted with chocolate chips. But let's call them brownies anyway.

The Best Pumpkin Spice Brownies You Will Ever Bake

I first made these brownies right before the 2012 Presidential elections, and shared the recipe with a plea for respect across party lines. Now, I've given up on that so I'm just sharing the recipe.

Just joking. Although some of the responses to my dad's fabulous guest post on how patriotism is not only for Republicans is kind of making me sad...

Anyway. We can all agree on brownies, right? (Unless we are doing Paleo or gluten-free...oh dear.) Well, nonetheless, here we go:

I make them without leavening; the absence of baking soda or powder is not an error. That makes them chewier, as I lean chewy on the chewy vs. cakelike spectrum of brownie politics. If you are on the other side, please don't feel marginalized-just add 2 tsp. baking powder and an extra egg.
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin-pie spice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, cooked down to 1 cup, and cooled (or skip step 1 and use 1 cup pumpkin)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips dusted thoroughly with 1 tsp. flour
