Fudgy Flourless Pumpkin Brownies

Pumpkin spice meets chocolate: a match made in heaven. The hypnotizing smell that fills your kitchen when these brownies are done baking is unbeatable. If you don't have canned pumpkin puree on hand, you can make it from scratch. If you don't like pumpkin, butternut squash and sweet potato purees will work interchangeably, too. And feel free to store any extra brownies in the fridge for up to 7 days.

  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • ¼ cup gluten free 1:1 baking flour (such as Bob's Red Mill)

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin spice

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup chopped dark chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the gluten free 1:1 baking flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, pumpkin spice, baking soda and salt with a whisk.

  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, maple syrup and applesauce.

  4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients from step 3 until the batter is smooth.

  5. Pour the batter into an 8-inch square glass or metal baking pan coated with cooking spray.

  6. Sprinkle the dark chocolate chunks over the top of the batter.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out with a few crumbs on it. If the toothpick is clean, it's overcooked!

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
