Low-fat Pumpkin Cheater Brownies

Low-fat Pumpkin Cheater Brownies

Only four ingredients - how easy is that?

Ingredients:

1, 18.3 oz. box of fudgy brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker)

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp. instant espresso powder

1, 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix!)

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (60-70% cocoa content)

1.) Pre-heat oven to 350°F or 177°C

2.) Mix all ingredients, through pumpkin puree, in a large bowl. Place mixture in a greased, 8x8 inch metal pan. Sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips.

3.) Bake for 25-30 minutes on a center rack, or until just set. Avoid over-baking. My brownies took exactly 30 minutes.

4.) Cool, cut into squares and enjoy!
