Have I mentioned that we like pumpkin? I realize that most people abandon pumpkin after the holidays. Not us, we eat pumpkin desserts year round. And since pumpkin is so healthy, it makes us feel a little less guilty about indulging in one of our favorite vices: cinnamon chips.
My daughter just peeked over my shoulder and said, “I don’t like the words indulge and vice used in connection with food. It makes eating sound like a crime”. Perhaps eating pumpkin brownies with cinnamon chips is not a crime, but if you eat them for breakfast, as she is planning on doing, you should probably feel at least a twinge of guilt.
- In a large bowl, thoroughly combine pumpkin, applesauce, eggs, and brown sugar.
- In a small bowl combine flour, spices, baking soda, and salt.
- Stir flour mixture into pumpkin mixture. Mix well.
- Stir cinnamon chips into the batter.
- Pour batter into a greased 13 x 9 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
