Hungry Girl Brownies

BrowniesMy pal My Kids Eat Squid recently posted about Hungry Girl’s 2 ingredient brownie recipe. Obviously I had to try it! The recipe is so simple. Mix one box chocolate cake mix (I used gluten-free) with one 15 ounce can of canned pumpkin (I used organic). Mix it and divide among 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes at 400. Here is the range of opinions in my house:

– College age daughter: “I like these! I can’t tell there’s pumpkin in them.”

– Teenage son: “What is wrong with these? It tastes like bread or something.” Then I disclosed the recipe. He said it did not taste like pumpkin, but he didn’t like it.

– Me: I think these are a decent substitute for brownies if you’re trying to make them healthier. You do NOT taste the pumpkin at all. I kept them in the fridge and I think it made them taste a little better. If you want easy brownies, just make a mix – this isn’t really all that easier and you do have to scoop into muffin tins.
