Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies

Libby's Pumpkin Ad, November 14, 1949
Fall for me is always all about pumpkins, and over the years I've posted many Chocolate Pumpkin Recipes. Try Chocolate Pumpkin Bark or Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake or Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf CakeChocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Here's an easy recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies adapted from a recipe from Libby's Pumpkin. My mother's name is Libby, so I always love using Libby Pumpkin in recipes. "Libby, Libby, Libby, on the Label, Label, Label."  You can always substitute 'real' pumpkin. 

FYI: These brownies are more cakelike than chewy . With that in mind, enjoy!

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 large egg whites

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon DARK unsweetened Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup broken dark chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips)

Now, this is a creative way to use pumpkin in the fall. I like "cake" rather than chewy,
