I came across this recipe in a recipe link-up. The original recipe came from http://www.premeditatedleftovers.com/ .
I tweaked it a bit. I didn't have cinnamon chips so I used chocolate chips, I added walnuts, used only the egg whites and the only applesauce I had was individual sized "Country Berry" applesauce so that is what I used.
1- 15 oz. can pureed pumpkin
1 cup applesauce
2 egg whites
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1- 10 oz bag chocolate chips (or cinnamon chips)
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, thoroughly combine pumpkin, applesauce, egg whites and brown sugar.
In a small bowl combine flour, spices, baking soda and salt.
Stir flour mixture into the pumpkin mixtuer. Mix well.
Stir chocolate (cinnamon) chips and walnuts into batter.
Pour batter into a greased 13X9 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
I took these brownies to our fellowship dinner after Church yesterday. They were wiped out pretty fast. I, personally, thought they were delicious! Very moist and so full of flavor.
I liked the chocolate chips but I might try it again with cinnamon chips if I have a chance. But for me, usually everything is better with chocolate!
Adding the walnuts definitely gave it more texture and added to the flavor.
The "Country Berry" applesauce gave it just a very tiny hint of berry flavor. Very subtle but very tasty. I wonder if I would be able to tell the difference if I used plain applesauce?
These Pumpkin Brownies turned out great and I was asked for the recipe by a few different people. I told them I would have to compile the recipe with all my tweakings.
If you give this recipe a try, let me know what you think.
