November is finally here and everything Fall is filling our homes and feeds on social media.  I don’t know about you but between the political posts and the pumpkin posts that is about all I have seen.  Well I don’t have anything political to share with you but I do have a pumpkin post for you.  Don’t worry though it has chocolate too, so I hope thats ok.

Pumpkin Brownies?

Yep, you read that right…we are making Pumpkin Brownies today.  I love baking with pumpkin.  It adds so much moisture without all the fat of butter or oil and without altering the taste.  If you are trying to lighten a recipe up you can replace the butter or oil 1:1 with pumpkin puree.  Just that simple change can reduce the fat by a ton.  If you haven’t tried it…you should.

For fall I wanted to bring the taste and flavors of pumpkin to my favorite (very descendant) fudgy brownies…but this time I didn’t use the pumpkin to lighten anything up, I used in addition too.  Since it is fall, it is time to indulge a bit and these brownies are a perfect place to jump right in.

In the pumpkin swirl there is just a hint of pumpkin spice which pairs perfectly with the super fudgy and rich brownies.  Don’t even get me started on the color…I love the deep orange!!

Bring on some caramel…

In addition to pumpkin I added in a caramel swirl as well…yep there is pumpkin and caramel all in one brownie.

I love pumpkin and caramel anything.  In my pumpkin spice latte I add in caramel (you should try it).  On biscuits with my homemade pumpkin butter I have been known to drizzle a little salted caramel on there as well.  I am all about pumpkin and caramel.

You can make your own salted caramel or you can buy it in the jar, my favorite jarred salted caramel is from Trader Joes and you can get it on Amazon here.  Make sure it is a good thick caramel sauce, you don’t want it to disappear into the brownies.

Trust me the caramel and pumpkin are perfect together!!

Preheat the oven NOW!
