Soft, gooey, and dense pumpkin blondies with dark chocolate chunks are loaded with fall flavors that will satisfy your sweet tooth!
Whelp, I’m baaaaaaack. And honestly I could not be happier. I’m a creature of habit and as much as I love traveling, I love my routine.
I’ve got lots and lots to share with you about Italy. It was completely incredible. The food. The scenery. The people. The culture. Everything was amazing.
But I definitely have no desire to eat bread, pizza or pasta anytime soon. And I’m pretty sure I drank more wine that water over the last 2 weeks. As for the gelato, I think I could maintain the gelato consumption. Yep, I most definitely could.
But let’s get back to business and talk about these pumpkin blondies! Before I left, I made these and brought them in to work for my colleagues. People. Went. Nuts. I mean – pumpkin… obviously. Dark chocolate. Duh. It’s really hard to say no.
Any why should we?! Let’s get into it…
- It’s October so pumpkin is a given.
- Dark chocolate is good for your heart.
- Sometimes brownies don’t cut it and you really just need a blondie.
These pumpkin blondies are super dense, moist, gooey-ooey, uber chocolately and pretty much everything that you could want out of a dessert. Oh and they take about 10 minutes of prep and 30 minutes in the oven. So, weeknight dessert here I come!
Are you a blondie fan or do you prefer brownies? (pssst. you DON’T have to choose just one!)
