Original post...

Is there any more classic combo than Pumpkin and Chocolate?

The combo is indulgent tasting and has all the Fall vibes.

We first made these Fudgy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies last year and they quickly became a Fall favorite! So they were naturally the first pumpkin treat we made this year.

They taste like a soft baked cookie, only better.

They are soft and chewy, a little gooey when warm, fudgy, chocolate-y and melt in your mouth yummy!

And while they taste decadent, they are naturally gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free optional, making them a perfect for so many dietary needs and preferences.

They are made with 11 pantry staple ingredients and can be prepped in just 10 minutes!

All you need is:

almond flour



lots of chocolate chips

butter or dairy-free butter


vanilla extract

baking powder



and salt.

AND, they are suuuper quick and easy to make!

All you do is cream the butter and sugar, add in the eggs, pumpkin and vanilla, then add in the dry ingredients.  It literally takes no time!

One tip with the dry ingredients is to make them together in a small bowl first using a pastry cutter, whisk of fork. This will combine them better, plus it will make the almond flour a bit finer which improves the texture when baking.

Then simply spoon the batter into a baking pan, top with more chocolate chips and bake!

So if you’re looking for a quick and easy pumpkin treat, this is for you!

Cook Time30 minutes
Total Time40 minutes
Course: Dessert, Cookies, Snacks, Fall
Cuisine: Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Optional
Servings: 16 square
Author: Healthy Gluten-free Family


  • 1/3 cup butter or butter alternative softened (we used Earth Balance soy-Free sticks)
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2/3 cup pure canned pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or dairy-free chocolate chips plus extra for topping if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare an 8-inch-square baking pan: cover parchment paper, allowing it to slightly overhang opposite ends.
  • Mix butter and sugar in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until well combined and creamy.
  • Add in eggs, pumpkin and vanilla, mix well.
  • Whisk almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  • Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Top with a few extra chips for decoration if desired.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (or with just chocolate on it!). Tip: if the top is done and you want to cook it a few extra minutes, cover with foil.
  • Let cool in the pan for 45 minutes. Lift the entire parchment paper out and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.
  • I like to store in the refrigerator.

    These are delicious! So quick and easy to make! I subbed in 2 flax ‘eggs’ to make them vegan and they turned out so fudgy! With the substitute, I cooked them for 38 minutes.

    1. Yay! So glad you love them too Gabriella! And thanks SO much for sharing you cooking adaptation– I’m so glad to hear they worked well with flax eggs and appreciate knowing the extra time you cooked them!

    1. haha so happy you love them! I haven’t frozen them because they disappear too quickly in my house but I freeze everything, so I would think they will freeze fine! In fact, they might be really tasty straight of the the freezer 🙂

    Just made my third double batch this week! I might have a little problem. ?
    I didn’t have enough chocolate chips for the second batch so I added butterscotch chips and the whole family agreed that we will make them with a combo of chips from now on. I also subbed half all purpose gf flour/half almond flour.
    Thank you for the delicious recipe and for making it feel at least slightly like fall even though it’s still 90 degrees here in FL!

  3. 5 stars
    Easy recipe and super delicious! I love almond flour and it’s nice to make a GF dessert that doesn’t require a multi-flour blend. I’ll definitely be making it again!

  4. Omg so good !! They are so delicious and moist!! May make these for friends daughters bake sale next week! And again thanks for all the recipes!

  5. 5 stars
    I just baked this and absolutely love it! So moist and delicious !! Might make for friends daughters bake sale next week. Thanks for the recipe !!

  6. just finished making the fudgy pumpkin chocolate chip blondies….couldn’t use almond flour due to nut allergy so i opted for a mixture of gluten free oat flour and gluten free all purpose flour…?

  7. 5 stars
    These are so amazing!!!! Beyond easy to make and just exactly what I hoped for in a blondie! Absolutely love love the flavors and the pumpkin makes these bars so incredibly rich! Thank you so much for another amazing recipe!

  8. These were delicious! I substitute salmon butter for the dairy butter to make them healthier and they came out perfectly: fudge and moist!

  9. 5 stars
    This recipe was stellar!! The texture is perfect and they taste delicious, perfect thing to make with my extra pumpkin in the pantry. I used a mixture of regular flour and oat flour (as opposed to just almond flour) and cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup and it was still delicious! Highly recommend!!

  10. 5 stars
    These were super easy to make. I used a single shallow large bowl and a fork! Loved the minimal clean up. I used butter and lankato sweetener. The final product was fluffy and satisfying!

  11. 5 stars
    Made these yesterday to “celebrate” another week of lockdown done – easy and delish! Family loves them. Used dairy-free butter and fresh, roasted pumpkin. Thanks for the great gf recipes 🙂

  12. Has anyone tried this recipe with bobs red mill 1 to 1 GF Baking flour instead? If I utilize that, do I omit the baking powder ? Please let me know, thanks 🙂

  13. 4 stars
    OMG, these blondies are soooo good! They are simple to make, the whole house smells wonderful, and they are a great afternoon treat that goes perfect with a cup of hot coffee! I give this recipe a 5 stars!!!

  14. Just made this recipe last weekend!! It is SO good…I ended up doubling the chocolate chips (whoops) 🙂 and it needed to bake a tad longer but it was delicious!!

  15. I’m going to give this recipe a try using a all purpose gluten free flour and plant based butter. Can’t wait to try. Like most of your recipes, these look absolutely amazing!!!

  16. Made these blondies a few times and they are delicious!! I make my own pumpkin (or butternut squash) puree by streaming it for 10 min then mashing it. I like to season it with a dash of honey, and use less sugar. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  17. 5 stars
    Holy Moly these were awesomeness! I don’t eat sugar so I replaced the sugar with Monkfruit and they were seriously the best brownies I have ever had. I don’t usually even like brownies. My only mistake was that I cut them shortly after they came out of the oven and they kind of broke a part. So I put in the fridge and they hardened up again. I would wait to cut until they are completely cooled.
