Recipe comes from Nestle. The pumpkin flavor is subtle. I have completely omitted the allspice many times and still gotten good results.
- 2⁄3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 large egg
- 2 large egg whites
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened baking cocoa
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9-inch-square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, egg, egg whites and oil. Beat until blended.
- Add flour, baking powder, cocoa, cinnamon, allspice, salt: beat until batter is smooth.
- Stir in morsels. Spread into prepared pan.
- Bake for about 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.
- Cut into squares when cooled.
Mild and cakey, these get 5 stars for also being a healthy lunchbox treat that's quick to make. Had to bake mine longer. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
A very tasty, and low fat, treat!! I found that the amount of allspice was fine IF you doubled the amount of cocoa powder. I just felt that 1 tsp wouldn't quite do it. We were very pleased with the results! Thanks for sharing.
I actually made these brownies last night (from the exact same recipe off of verybestbaking.com) and they are VERY good. However, they have just a little bit too much "spice" in them, so maybe reduce the allspice to 1/4 tsp or so. Good stuff!
