Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies

recipes sweets Sep 28, 2021

After adequately mourning the end of summer, I’m officially ready for all of the fall goodness! With the weather still so toasty down in Austin, fall doesn’t really hit the same as it does many other places. But that’s all the more reason to find ways to really make it feel like autumn!

This past weekend I got very excited about whipping up new seasonal recipes, so be on the lookout for several new and tasty additions to the blog soon.

To kick things off, I’m bringing you a simple and incredibly tasty fall-inspired treat – these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies.

I’ve had many requests for healthy ways to put pumpkin to use this season, and boy do I have you covered. Check out these recipes while you’re getting in the spirit as well:

Back to the blondies: pumpkin is obviously the star of the show. And while it tastes amazing, it’s also incredibly nutritious. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A and antioxidants that can help support your immune system, protect eye health, promote healthy skin and more.

In addition to the pumpkin, you’ll only need a few pantry staples for a dessert that satisfies and you can feel good about. This includes almond flour, cashew butter, maple syrup, an egg, pumpkin purée, etc. Pumpkin pie spice is also the perfect addition for a punch of fall flavor to add to baked goods, coffee and more.

One of my all-time favorite combinations is pumpkin and chocolate, so don’t forget the chips! Lily’s stevia-sweetened baking chips are my go-to for a low sugar option with all of the flavor you want.

When you bake these babies up, you’re left with a cake-y, drool-worthy blondie that the whole family will love. I hope you enjoy these seasonal treats as much as I do!
