Pumpkin Brownies

I love brownies. So much so that I feel this website deserves a second recipe. Because there are so many different ways to make a delicious chocolatey treat. I want easy access for all the brownie lovers out there.

Check out my other brownies here: Avocado Brownies

Food is Where the Heart is

The other day my best friend and I were having a talk about how food truly is a love language. If I want to give someone a thoughtful gift, often the first thing that comes to mind is getting them a treat that would bring them joy in some way. Similarly, making something for someone to enjoy is a prime act of service moment, which also happens to be one of my main love languages.

All this is to say that brownies take me down memory lane, as they are my dad’s favourite dessert. Growing up, we would always have brownies with fresh raspberries for his birthday or father’s day. To this day, his birthday is a special occasion to make brownies…

So here you go, make brownies for someone you love sometime. we can all use a little love in the form of a soft, chewy, chocolatey brownie.

Brownie pan OR 3 Bite Brownies

Below I have included two ways to shape this dessert. Either 3-4 bite brownies (see what I did there), or a good old pan of them. Choose whatever shape will be more fun for you. (The photos are my 4-bite version because my pan of brownies photo sesh was not as aesthetic… IYKYK)

Pumpkin Brownie Recipe

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup oatflour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks (chunks make the experience better but chips work too)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mash banana in a large bowl, and whisk eggs in with it.
  3. Add all other wet ingredients to a bowl and mix them together.
  4. Mix dry ingredients in a small seperate bowl and then combine with wet ingredients.
  5. Add chocolate chunks (my favourite is the dark chocolate bars chopped up. Thank me later)
  6. Add batter to a greased 8×8 brownie pan or line it with parchment paper. (or add 10-12 muffin tins 1/4 of the way full for the brownie bites version)
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 22 minutes. This is just the perfect amount of cooking time for a slightly gooey undercooked vibe, so feel free to leave them in for a few more minutes if you don’t love the “chewy” brownie type as much.
  8. Serve with some ice cream, raspberries, chocolate frosting, or whatever makes you the happiest. Brownies are meant to bring you joy, embrace it.

I'd like to consider myself a food and coffee enthusiast. I always get excited to create eat flavourful recipes that fuel my mind and my body. A few of my favourite foods consist of salads (the fun kind), sourdough bread, avocados, and almond butter. My coffee order is an iced americano with oatmilk no matter the weather.
