pumpkin brownie bites

Sometimes you need to take shortcuts.

Healthy ones! ;)

I’ve seen this recipe circulating around lots of blogs and Pinterest for a while now, and decided to give it a whirl. What is it? Simply a brownie mix and a can of pumpkin (egg is even optional). Mix them together, bake them according to the box directions, and what do you have?

A super moist and fudgy brownie.

Easier and healthier than a regular boxed brownie.

And equally scrumptious.

  • One egg (optional)


  1. Mix brownie mix, pumpkin, and egg with a wooden spoon. Spoon into greased 13 x 9 pan or mini muffin tins.
  2. Bake for about 30 minutes for the pan, and 15-20  for the mini muffin tins (they’re done when they spring back slightly when you touch them).
  3. Devour!

My Two Cents: As is the case with a lot of pumpkin/chocolate desserts, you can’t even tell that pumpkin was the secret ingredient in this recipe. These came out extremely fudgy for me, so if you’re a fan of cake-like brownies, stick to the regular recipe on the back of the box ;)

So, essentially, if you keep a brownie mix and can of pumpkin in your house at all times, a handy treat is always at your fingertips!
