Sharpshootinstar's Pumpkin Peanut Butter Brownies

Yes, you read right, brownies on a Calorie Counting blog! These are from my good friend Sharpshootinstar:

The nutrition facts and other great calorie information can be found at Calorie Count.

Low Fat Pumpkin Peanut Butter Brownies


1 15 oz canned pumpkin puree
1 box brownie mix
2 tablespoons peanut butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Combine pumpkin with brownie mix and mix well. Spray a small baking pan with non stick spray (8x4 works well), and pour in the brownie mixture. 

Warm the peanut butter in the microwave till it is smooth and somewhat runny, then drizzle it on top of the brownie mix. 

Bake for 35-40 minutes. The batter should remain very fudgey looking and appear undercooked. 

Remove from the oven and cover with foil, and allow to cool in the fridge for a couple hours. 

Cut into 10 large pieces and enjoy a nice healthy dessert! Calories per brownie - 298. Because of the peanut butter and the pumpkin this dessert ranks very high on Calorie Count's nutrition scale and gets a B-.

If you like to use sugar free products, you can lower the calories more by using a sugar free brownie mix, but, really, a little sugar is good for you, promise!


  1. Wow. That sounds awesome! You know, pillsbury makes a sugar free brownie mix and that combined with this recipe spells heaven to me!! Might be my easter dinner desert!

  2. That's a go.. easy peasy as a friend of mine might say.. lookin forward to tryin this one. thanks tons!

  3. I've never made it with sugar free mix, but only 'cause that kind is hard to find at my local grocery store.
    I hope you both enjoy it!
