Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Of course, I love the sights and sounds of the season, but I can't get enough of the warm, rich, and delicious pumpkin baked goods that are oh-so-popular right now.

I recently joined in on the pumpkin fun and created a blondie recipe that combines three of my very favorite flavors: pumpkin, chocolate, and espresso. It combines nutrient-packed pumpkin with sweet chocolate and a shot of energy-boosting espresso for a delicious autumn treat to be enjoyed when you need a little pick-me-up!
