Looking for a healthier "brownie" when the mood strikes? Well, this one should do the trick. :) Close to the consistency of cake, but denser/chewier with yummy dark chocolate bits! I definitely intend on trying this without the chips and maybe just sprinkling a little powdered sugar on top. Mmmmm....so good!
1 1/4 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (I use the blend that has white flour)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Tsp Nutmeg
1 Cup Pumpkin Puree (canned is fine)
1/4 Cup Buttermilk
1/4 Cup Canola Oil
2 Eggs, beaten
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips (Ghiradelli 60% Cocao Chips)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9x13 pan and set aside. Combine all dry ingredients, then add pumpkin puree, buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla, mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and spread into prepared pan. Bake in center of oven for 30-40 minutes.
