Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Brownie

Ok, so I couldn't get a good picture of my yummy dessert...but trust me when I say it's delicious!  I found this recipe via Pennies on a Platter.  I love pumpkin bread and chocolate so this seemed a perfect combo....and indeed, the husband I enjoyed it ALOT! (read: we had no trouble eating the whole thing ourselves!)

Here's the recipe:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350˚F.  Line an 11″- x 7″-inch pan with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, eggs and oil until smooth.  Set aside.

In a separate medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, spices, salt and brown sugar.  Add to the wet ingredients and mix until thoroughly incorporated.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly.  Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until passes toothpick test.  Cool completely before cutting.

Note: this makes a fairly small batch...perfect for the 2 of us, but I'd double it if I was going to take it anywhere.
