When the weather starts getting colder, I turn into a pumpkin addict. I mean, I basically consider the day when Starbucks brings back their pumpkin spice lattes a national holiday and start planning my pumpkin-themed Thanksgiving menu a month in advance.
Quick Note: I’ve started a Facebook page for Apple of My Eye! “Like” the page to get updates on recipes, workouts, and more on your newsfeed! (I’d really appreciate it!)
While I’m really a summer girl at heart, I love and idolize the things that come with Fall. Boots, scarves, layers, you name it, I love it. (Except for actually being cold, I’m a wimp when the weather drops below 60 degrees.) That’s why I think it’s about time to start baking and cooking up a whole army of pumpkin-themed recipes, starting with these ridiculously easy skinny pumpkin spice brownies!
These brownies have a texture that’s in-between a brownie and fudge and are SO moist and dense! You can bet your pretty little face that I’ll be enjoying a few of these babies with my morning coffee for the next couple of days.
And yes, the brownies in the picture are cut to portion size!
They have a yummy pumpkin flavor and I promise they aren’t just itty-bitty bites per serving. You get a sizable brownie!
I don’t know about you, but I love splurging with treats and could easily eat 4 of these and still be much lower in calories and fat than a grocery store brownie. Win! Keep in mind that these brownies have a different taste and texture thanks to the addition to pumpkin and lack of oil and butter- but in they’re own sweet-tooth satisfying way!
Another bonus? They only require one bowl and 6 ingredients, most of which you probably already have on hand.

- 1 box of brownie mix (get the fudgy kind!)
- 1 can of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- ¾ tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ¼ cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix together the brownie mix, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, egg, and pumpkin pie spice until thoroughly combined. Pour into a greased 13x9 baking dish.
- Top with white chocolate chips and bake for 18 minutes until baked, but still fudgy.
Fabulous Feedback from Fabulous Readers!
“Great recipe!! Thank you for sharing! I’m a pumpkin fanatic and I also added milk chocolate and butterscotch chips to the top because I had them in my cabinet. They made the brownies look even more ‘fall festive’! I’ll definitely make these again!”- Mon “Love these brownies! Made them for my little family yesterday and half of them are gone! Even my hubby who isn’t the biggest pumpkin fan is sneaking these! I love the heavier-fudgy brownie texture. Thank you for the great recipe!”- Andra
