Pumpkin Brownies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour,
1 teaspoon salt,
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder,
1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (I used 1 tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cloves)

2 whole eggs beaten
1/4 cup fat free milk
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin (I took one small pie pumpkin and stewed it first)
1/2 cup applesauce (I took one large apple and stewed it first)
1/2 to 1 cup raisins (I used ½ cups raisins and ¼ cup pecan pieces)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips (I used a mix of both)

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat 15 1/2×10 1/2 -inch baking pan with cooking spray. (I used an 8” x 12” pan).

In large bowl, mix dry ingredients first. – flour, sugar, baking powder, spice, & salt.
Then add and combine pumpkin, applesauce, beaten eggs, milk; mix until just blended.

Stir in raisins and chocolate chips, if desired. Spread evenly into prepared pan.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

If desired one can make a glaze. In small bowl, combine powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of the milk; mix until smooth, adding additional fat-free milk, as needed, to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over brownies; cut into squares. I am not sure that I would use the glaze next time, as I think it makes it pretty sweet.

Great photo of the young pumpkin fruit, Sharad. Our sugar pumpkins are still “curing” on the grass in the sun. We had such a cool, wet summer, many of the pumpkins were still green when our first frost killed the vines. Now we are having a sunny warm period and I am watching my pumpkins growing orange.

Oh My! Did I miss the free samples???

Looks delicious. I’ll have to give this one a try!

I usually make pumpkin pie filling or bake slices of pumpkin with other veggies such as sweet potato, parsnip, apples, acorn squash and sprinkle some butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardomon on it and it makes a wonderful side dish for a turkey or roast.

Sharad, beautiful picture,
Nice recipe,
Since I buy so many pumpkins some of them I usualy toss over the fence for the deer and little critters.
They love them and I love watching them.
