One thing about the Fall season is that people get to enjoy the fruits and vegetables of the season. One of those is pumpkin.

Pumpkins are a very versatile and delicious food. One of the questions people have every year is whether it is a fruit or a vegetable. According to expert Joe Masabni, Ph.D., “a pumpkin is a fruit simply because anything that starts from a flower is botanically a fruit”.

What is unique about pumpkin is that it can be used as both a savory food as well as in sweets. Pumpkin is tasty in pasta, risotto, chili, stews, and baked dishes just to name a few recipes. For sweets, the dishes that can be used are endless.

Here is a great sweet recipe that is easy and delicious.

Pumpkin Brownies With Chocolate Chips:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
