These were absolutely fantastic! There is a bit of effort (and mess) involved given the need to split the batter, but it was definitely worth it. Also, while the batter was a bit difficult to spread as other reviewers have mentioned, I used a knife and swirling-motion at the end as directed, and they came out gorgeously marbled. If you like the combination of autumn spices with pumpkin and chocolate, you really can't go wrong with these. I made a few changes to make them a bit healthier, and my husband and I both felt that they tasted just as good as if I'd followed the recipe exactly. I used 1/2 cup Smart Balance Light plus 1/4 cup extra pumpkin in place of the butter (incorporated both in the base-batter, adding the other 1/2 cup of pumpkin when directed) and only 1 cup of sugar. I used 5 packets of Stevia to make up the difference. I also omitted the nuts, but kept all else the same. The brownies baked up perfectly in 40 minutes, and they were enjoyed just as much freshly baked and warm as after a night in the fridge. This one is a definite keeper, and I know I will make them multiple times over the coming season. Thank you so much for the great recipe!!
