Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Squares

    • Serves 16

    I don’t know about you but around this time of year my instagram feed is all about pumpkin. And though I do like pumpkin desserts, I just had to add some chocolate. I melted a good quality, dark chocolate but you can be adventurous and add any chocolate you like! Even white chocolate would work out beautifully!



    Melt The Chocolate & Preheat Oven

    Preheat your oven to 350F.

    Melt your chocolate using a double boiler. Bring about an inch of water to a simmer in your saucepan. Set a heatproof bowl in the mouth of the saucepan, making sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl. Add 2 oz of chocolate to the bowl and allow it to melt, stirring occasionally. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat. The residual heat will melt the rest.

    You can also use the microwave to melt your chocolate. Be sure to not burn the chocolate.

    After the chocolate is fully melted move to the side to cool.


    Mix Dry Ingredients

    To a bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Set aside.


    Mix Wet Ingredients

    First, mix the melted coconut oil and both sugars. Mix well using a whisk. Next, add the vanilla extract and mix. Add one egg at a time and whisk t combine. Lastly, add the pumpkin puree and mix well.


    Combine Wet and Dry

    Add your dry ingredients to the wet and mix with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Mix until the flour mixture is no longer visible but do not over mix as that can result in a heavier, more dense dessert.


    Make Chocolate Layer

    Add about 6 tbsp of the pumpkin batter to the melted chocolate and mix well.


    Get Your Square Baking Dish

    Grab a 8x8 square baking dish, grease with coconut oil and line with parchment paper.

    Add the pumpkin batter to the baking dish and even the top with the rubber spatula. Next, add dollops of the chocolate mixture over the pumpkin batter. Using a butter knife or a wooden skewer, create swirly motions to mix the pumpkin and chocolate.


    Bake for 30-35 minutes

    Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes. Check it after 30 minutes with another wooden skewer or toothpick and if it comes out clean, it is done.

    Allow it to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting it into squares and devour!
