These are extremely moist- not cakey at all. From watching an episode of Dr. Oz one day, I discovered the idea of substituting pumpkin puree for the butter or oil normally used. Result is super moist, decadent brownies with a lot less calories and guilt. The strawberries baked in also add to the moist quality of these treats. Perfect for a chocolate fix now and then.

Recipe Ingredients for Deep Dark Brownies

0.75 cup Gold Medal All Purpose Flour
0.5 package (20 oz) Strawberries
5 oz Organic Dark Chocolate
0.5 cup Pumpkin
2 large Egg, Whole
1 large Egg, White
6 oz Premium Baking Chips
2 serving espresso powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
0.25 tsp Salt, Table
1 tbsp Cocoa, Dry Powder, Unsweetened

Recipe Directions for Deep Dark Brownies

  1. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  2. 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder

  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  4. 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin, I usually grab the canned variety

  5. 3/4 teaspoon instant espresso powder

  6. 5 ounces dark chocolate bar(70%), finely chopped

  7. 1/3 cup plus 1 1/2 tbsp truvia

  8. 2 large eggs, at room temperature

  9. 1 egg white

  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  11. 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  12. 1/2 to 1 bag of frozen, sliced strawberries(unsweetened), thawed

  13. Directions:

  14. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8x8-inch pan. Line with parchment paper and let it hang over two sides. Butter the parchment.

  15. 2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, and salt; set aside.

  16. 3. In a large saucepan, combine butter and espresso powder. Heat on low and stir until butter has melted. Add chocolate, and stir constantly until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in Truvia until combined. Let cool slightly.

  17. 4. Whisk eggs and vanilla and keep moving the batter around until combined and no longer grainy-looking. Add flour mixture to batter and stir just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Stir in thawed, sliced strawberries

  18. 5. Pour batter into prepared pan; smooth top with a greased spatula. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a just a few moist crumbs attached (28 to 30 minutes). Don't over bake! Let cool completely. Cut into pieces and serve or store.
