Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies

I love that the second fall hits all the food blogs and food magazines I read are FULL of pumpkin everywhere...
I have made these pumpkin brownies three times so far this fall..so I decided it was finally time to do a post on them. Chocolate, pumpkin and pumpkin spices all together? yes.please! oh and super easy and not totally unhealthy...double yesplease.

Collect your ingredients....

Then pour your sous chef a glass of wine and make her mix together the dry ingredients...

add them to the wet and then stir together and fold in the chocolate chips...

Then besides the fact this is pumpkin and chocolate chips mixed together in one dessert....the best part is that you bake it on parchment paper which means zero clean up afterwards...

Like I said, I have cooked this three times and they turn out perfectly everytime....(but I did have to add 10 minutes to my cook time...could depend on your oven, etc)

Fluffy, pumpkiny, chocolatey...
A tray of these dont last more than three days in our house..and a whole batch of them got devoured at book club....so my focus groups say...this is a winner! Enjoy!
