Pumpkin seems to be one of those things that people either love or hate or love to hate. If you are here I can only assume you are in the “love it” category like we are!

Pumpkin is a great fall flavor but with a recipe this good you are going to want to make chocolate chip pumpkin blondies all year long!

How many servings does this recipe make?

This recipe for pumpkin blondies makes about 12 servings. Of course you can cut them into whatever size or shape works for you but typically we cut them into 12 squares.

You can double the recipe and put it into two different pans for a bigger batch if you want to have some to share, it’ll work out just fine.

If you have a smaller pan you can also cut the recipe in half if necessary. I wouldn’t cut it in half and use the full size pan or they will end up being very thin blondies.

What do I need to make pumpkin chocolate chip blondies?

This recipe uses pretty much what you’d expect for a brownie or blondie recipe. You will need flour, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, baking soda, butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, chocolate chips, and salt.

You can use gluten free flour if you need these to be gluten free. You can also used dairy free alternatives if necessary as well. Choose a gluten free blend that is 1 to 1 for baking. Swapping out the regular flour for a plain almond or coconut flour might not work properly so I like to use a 1 to 1 baking blend that is gluten free when I need to make that swap!

The chocolate chips are also your choice. These are great with white chocolate chips as well so feel free to mix that up and use whatever you think will be tasty!

Kitchen essentials for baking tasty recipes:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of baking and not just cookies! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

This is a really simple blondies recipe that you can make from scratch! Sometimes recipes from scratch really are just easy and delicious. You’ll love how the pumpkin keeps these blondies moist and tasty and it adds a boost of nutrients which is always nice with a baked goods recipe!!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

ingredients in a bowl ready to be mixed.

In one mixing bowl combine the flour, spices, salt, and baking soda. Whisk gently and set aside.

Smooth the batter out with a rubber spatula.

Batter being added to a pan ready to go in the oven.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. To test for doneness, you should stick a toothpick into the center. You don’t want to overbake these, so when a few crumbs cling to the toothpick, pull it out of the oven and let it cool on the counter for about 30 to 45 minutes before cutting into squares.

If you want to make your own pumpkin puree you can learn all about how to clean pumpkins for that here. Homemade pumpkin puree is also really easy to freeze. If you make some and have too much just pop it into a freezer safe container to use your your next pumpkin recipe.

If you want to freeze these brownies be sure to freeze the whole pan until the brownies are semi solid and then wrap the whole block of brownies in plastic and then foil.

freezing them individually will make them harder to freeze and reheat properly. It works better to freeze a full batch or a big piece and then when they are thawed you can cut them. This will help to keep them from losing their original texture.
