Oh yeah! I'm starting to get a little obsessive about these two ingredient recipies. They are my kind of recipe. Quick, easy, and uses just a few ingredients. Actually, I wanted to make the regular pumpkin muffins (cake mix and pumpkin) but couldn't find any cake mix. BUT, I did find a package of brownie mix!! And, I think I've pretty well figured out the formula!
Can of pumpkin (the small can, 15 oz. Just plain pumpkin, NOT pumpkin pie filling)
Here we go! It's so easy!
Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit (same as it says on the box).
Spray your 9 x 11 pan with Pam. Yes, the same 9 x 11 pan everyone has!
Dump in the cake mix. Then scoop in the pumpkin.
Start stirring. Go slowly at first or you'll make a mess. When it starts combining, you can go faster.
See, it looks like real dough!
Pour into your Pam-ified pan.
Bake for 20-22 minutes (just a little less than what the package says since there are less ingredients).
Let cool, then cut into squares. Remember to use a plastic knife. For some reason they work so much better with brownies.
Just an fyi. The texture is a little different from regular brownies. Because these are NOT regular brownies. These are special, easy, fast, healthy, don't mess up your kitchen, don't have to do a ton of dishes brownies! Mmmmmmmmm they are chocolatey! I will have to tell you honestly. These got a mixed review from my boys. They were expecting a more brownie texture. So...... if you make these, don't call them brownies. You get your chocolate fix, it's got to be healthy with a whole can of pumpkin in it, so in my book, this recipe is a keeper!

How many Smartpoints in the two ingredient Brownies please? The brownie mix and canned pumpkin.
You recommend not baking as long. What is the indication that they are done? Such as the sides separating from the pan, or a dry toothpick?
I'm a fan of the dry toothpick testing method. Keep in mind, this will satisfy the chocolate craving you have but it doesn't rise like most other two or three ingredient recipes. Tastes great but a texture that is not what you expect.
Excellent idea for the 2 ingredient "Brownies"!
Always trying to sneak healthy foods into my family's diet -these are delicious! Really different, but my 24 yearbold son just loves them! Thank you for the idea 😀
They are a little different and my kids ate them because they were chocolaty and they were available. I agree all that pumpkin in the recipe makes you feel good about feeding them to your family!
