Step 2: Eggs and Sugar

First let's preheat the oven to 350 F (176 C). Now let's add our sugar and our eggs in a large bowl and mix them together with a hand mixer, wooden spoon, etc.

Step 3: Flour, Salt, Baking Soda

Now lets add in our flour, salt, and baking soda. Then use a wooden spoon or spatula to fold all the ingredients together. We aren't using the mixer at this point, we don't want to over mix the ingredients.

Step 4: Divide and Pumpkin It Up

Now let's divide our mixture evenly into two bowls. Set one of the bowls aside. Now add in the pumpkin puree, oil, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice. And with a spatula or wooden spoon mix all the ingredients together. Then set this mixture aside.

Step 5: Melt, Stir, Mix

Now let's melt together our butter and chocolate chips. You can do this on the stovetop if you like, on low heat. Or You can do it in the microwave. In the microwave start with your chocolate chips. On high, bursts of 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, until almost completely melted. Then add in your butter and repeat those steps until melted. Stir them together to make sure they are well combined. Then add that chocolate mixture to the other half of your batter. Stir to combine.

Step 6: Layer and Bake

Now let's add our brownie base to our pan. I have lined the pan with parchment paper and have sprayed it with kitchen spray. Spread it out evenly. Next add the pumpkin mixture on top, again spreading it out evenly. Next add the nuts and chocolate chips. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. If you are using a bigger pan the brownie will be thinner and won't take as long to bake. Go ahead and check it with a toothpick after 35 minutes. When the tooth pick comes out clean it is done.

Step 7: Cool, Cut, and Serve

Now we take the pumpkin brownies out of the oven, and let them cool on a cookie rack. I just grab the parchment paper and lift it out and then place it on the rack. After it has cooled, cut it up and serve. Enjoy!
