Super Fudgy Three Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies

Fudgy brownies…with only 3 ingredients?! YES.

While I love a good long recipe with multiple parts and components, it’s nice being able to throw something together with a handful of ingredients in no time flat. Even seasoned chefs need a break once every so often!

Plus, it’s more fun for my kids to make dishes with only three ingredients because they can do most, if not all of it on their own. That’s why I created these super fudgy and decadent three-ingredient brownies…to give us all a break during what always seems to be a busy and stressful time of year.

We Love A Budget & Time Friendly Recipe

Between the classroom parties, holiday shopping, crowds and gift exchange dinners, sometimes we just need to whip something up quickly, or give the kids a project so that we mommas get a few minutes of peace and quiet. (That is, until your 10-year-old knocks over a whole bag of almond flour and elbows his sister). But hey, we don’t cry over spilled flour around here! We simply sweep it up and start over… which is easy when a recipe contains only three ingredients 😉

And good news- all of the ingredients come from Trader Joe’s. (I’m not only saving you time in the kitchen, but time running errands, and some $$, because everything at good ol’ TJ’s is so affordable).

Grab Your Favorite Mini Chef

So turn on your ovens, grab a few ingredients, hand a whisk to your little one, and get ready for your house to smell absolutely delicious! Oh, and since this recipe contains no eggs, little fingers can “accidentally” scoop up the rich chocolate goodness. Because, what’s cuter than chubby cheeks sheepishly covered in chocolate?!

These super fudgy brownies are SO GOOD! Plus, you get the added health benefits of pumpkin, which include: fiber, beta carotene and vitamin A.

Oh and in case you were wondering, the pumpkin has a pretty mild flavor. If you want to bring out the pumpkin flavor, add the pumpkin pie spice. If you’re not feeling the pumpkin spice + brownie flavor combo, just leave the spice out! Up to you.

  • 1 box Trader Joe's Brownie Truffle Baking Mix
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • 3 tbsp Allulose (Trader Joe's carries it, or use powdered monk fruit)
  • 1 tsp Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie Spice (optional)


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • Add the brownie mix, pumpkin and Allulose to a bowl and whisk until fully combined. Stir in the pumpkin pie spice, if using. This adds a fun fall twist to the brownies.
  • Using a rubber spatula, add the batter to the loaf pan and bake for 20-22 minutes. The center should stay slightly underdone if you like them fudgy. Cool completely before slicing into 8 squares.

    I’m so excited to try these! I have never felt the need to add sweetener to a brownie mix, so could I omit the allulose? Or does it do something for the texture or something?

    1. Erin Woodbury says:

      Yes- you totally could. The only reason we added it is because pumpkin tends to taste a little bitter, so there’s a little balancing act to consider. But they totally might be sweet enough without it. The good news is, because there are no eggs, you can taste the batter and determine if the sweetness is right for you!

    Confused as to how it’s the no eggs or dairy that makes these “healthier.” Not a fan of rhetoric demonising food groups, especially since these foods are both fine for those that aren’t intolerant.

    1. Erin Woodbury says:

      I do not think anyone here is demonizing a food. Some people are vegan and do not eat eggs- and we like creating recipes for people who do, and don’t, eat certain ingredients. We have lots of egg recipes on the site for people who love eggs (which we do). In terms of being “healthier”- it’s not because of the lack of eggs, it is because pumpkin is an amazing food with lots of health benefits, and we used that instead of butter or oil, of which neither provide the antioxidants and fiber than pumpkin does. Moreover, this was meant to be an easy and fun recipe anyone could make with just 3 ingredients. Have an awesome day!

          In know, right?! Three easy and cheap ingredients that taste so “fall.” And- not need for the stick of butter called for in most brownie recipes!
