4 Ingredient Fudgy Pumpkin Pie Brownies

So far this week it looks like Fall on Brooklyn Farm Girl,  first pumpkins, then apples, I know I know… but I’m very excited for Fall, I love it!

Did you know I love pumpkins? Read this post in case you didn’t know.

The first thing I had to make with our fresh pumpkin harvest from the garden was pumpkin pie brownies.   I had such a great success with my avocado peanut butter chocolate brownies that pumpkin brownies were next on the list!


This recipe is so easy because it only involves 4 ingredients: brownie mix, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and chocolate chips.    If you notice there’s no butter, eggs or vegetable oil in these brownies.  The pumpkin puree takes care of all of that! The pumpkin adds moisture to your brownies so there’s no need to add those other fattening ingredients.    Pumpkin puree is healthy too!  1 cup of pure pumpkin is 49 calories!   Pumpkin is rich in dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins (vitamin-A, vitamin-C and vitamin-E).    Did I mention it’s delicious too? Because it really is!

These brownies are super fudgy. Warning:  If you love pumpkin pie and chocolate, once you eat one of these brownies you will enter a magical  world.    I also find that people who aren’t huge pumpkin fans also love these brownies due to how moist and chocolatey they are.  They really are a hit all around for the brownie crowd.

I love you pumpkins, I love you!

4 Ingredient Fudgy Pumpkin Pie Brownies
  1. Family Size Brownie Mix (I used Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix)
  2. 2 cups of fresh pumpkin puree (if not fresh, 15 oz can will work)
  3. 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  4. 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 8x8 pan with nonstick spray.
  3. Mix your Brownie Mix, Chocolate Chips and 1 1/2 cup of your pumpkin puree together in a bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl mix the 1/2 cup of your remaining pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice together.
  5. Spread 3/4 of your brownie mix mixture into your pan.
  6. Spread your pumpkin puree mixture on top.
  7. Spread your remaining brownie mix on the very top.
  8. Then with a knife gently swirl around the top layer of the brownie so it gets mixed up with the pumpkin puree.
  9. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Enjoy!
  1. Tip: If you want your brownies more firm, store in the refrigerator.

It will look something like this. I demand (nicely) you take a spoon right away!

Then mix your remaining 1/2 cup pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice together.

Now let’s begin layering these brownies..

First 3/4 of your brownie mix goes into your pan.

Then your pumpkin mixture goes on top.

Then your remaining brownie mixture on the very top.  Swirl with a  knife so it blends nicely with the pumpkin below it.

Throw it in the oven…

In the mean time, clean your bowl.  With a spoon and your tongue. Have no shame!

When the time is up, your pumpkin brownies will emerge from the oven with a delicious smell..  Leave cool to set.

Cut up into pieces, I usually do 9 brownies per 8×8 tray.

The edges remain firm to keep the brownies in tact.

But the middles are pure ooey gooey fudgy delight.

    Wow, looks so good…and it’s eggless. Perfect.

    • Pamela

      Thanks Ash, enjoy! :)

  3. I love using pumpkin in brownies! The best part about pumpkin puree for me is that my cats LOVE it. They go crazy when they see it and bug me until I “accidentally” drop some for them. It’s great for their fur and digestion too :)

    • Pamela

      I had no idea! I’m going to have to try this next time! FiFi Bofinkles will try it first because she will eat just about anything. :P

  4. Koko

    • Pamela

      Thanks Zainab and I totally agree, pumpkin celebration all year round in my opinion! :)

  8. Miss Messy

    Super stupid question, but since i’m from the UK, we don;t use pumpkin a lot. We don’t have tinned pumpkin so i’d have to make my own pumpkin puree.. so um, how do I do that? Yep i’m an idiot. But these brownies looks so freaking good! :D I also need to hunt for brownie mix..! I think i should just move to America!

    • Pamela

      No worries, I’m going to do a post soon on how to make your own pumpkin puree, straight from a pumpkin.. so easy and you can freeze to use months (even a year!) later. :)

  9. Jaclyn

    It’s been feeling a bit like fall outside so these sound super appetizing! I love chocolate and LOVE pumpkin even more so these would be super dangerous for me! I kind of can’t wait for it to actually be fall now.

  10. Amy @ Elephant Eats

    Dear fall,
    Please come asap and bring your wonderful pumpkins and apples and pretty leaf colors and crisp air and fun holidays. I’m done with this summer crap.

  12. Francine

    Wow, very cool! You are really good at making brownies with what seems like odd ingredients. I would’ve never thought of this but it makes it so simple and sounds good. I just can’t get myself into pumpkin mode right now… but come October I WILL try these :)

    • Pamela

      Enjoy in October Francine! It’s my favorite month. :)

    There is some serious batter left in that bowl. That’s I do things around here too. I like to lick the bowl, what can I say.
