    the80srule's Note:

    The recipe is from Nestle (I'm not taking credit for it) and it was sooo good that I had to post it here for safe-keeping. It originally called for vegetable oil which I subbed with applesauce as I do with all my baked goods to cut calories and I tweaked a few other things. This is perfect to make when you have only a little bit of pumpkin left! A little goes a long way for this recipe. NOTE: I just modified this recipe because I made it again, and used 1 oz Baker's bittersweet choclate instead of cocoa powder. Came out so much better! Sweeter and creamier. I think adding 1 tbsp milk or cream will give it a nice lustre too.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 16



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Grease a square 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Blend the pumpkin, sugar, egg and egg whites, and applesauce until smooth.
    3. 3
      Add the flour, baking powder, salt, (and cocoa powder if using that method); blend until smooth.
    4. 4
      Melt the chocolate (I put the the 1-oz square in a small dish and microwaved on high for 30 seconds) and blend it into the mixture, incorporate completely.
    5. 5
      Add the spices and fully blend them inches.
    6. 6
      Mix in the chocolate chips, then spread the mixture evenly into the pan. You might need a rubber scraper to do this.
    7. 7
      Bake at 350. Depending on your oven strength, bake for 20-30 minutes or until completely set. (My convection oven only needed 20 minutes.) Cut into squares, 4x4 to yield 16 brownies.

      These were excellent, a cake-like brownie. I used real pumpkin, it was frozen and then thawed, with a little liquid in the bag. I threw the whole thing in. I used semisweet baking chocolate. If you use unsweetened baking chocolate you need to add somewhere around 2 Tbl sugar. These were supremely good still warm, with the chocolate chips all melty. I made these for Girl Scout snacks and had to bring the recipe back the next meeting.

      Definitely a five star recipe! Healthy and good? What's not to love about that combination? I made it exactly as listed and loved them. They were very very moist. At first a thought maybe I didn't bake them long enough, but I did and they just happen to be extra moist. You'll love them! But be careful, since they're relatively low cal, you'll be tempted to eat the whole pan...
