I can't get enough of pumpkin right now.  Remember, I mentioned in a previous blog that I'm always on the lookout for a low-fat dessert at night?.  When I was on maintenance I got really sick of eating 100 calorie packs all the time.  This is a recipe for pumpkin chocolate-chip brownies.  The serving size is for one brownie an 8x8 dish that's sliced into 16 squares.  Based on the informational facts you could have two because the calories, fat, and sodium are all low.  Put a little fat-free Cool Whip on one of these heated up and it could be delicious!  I can't wait to try this recipe!
