Embracing Gluten-Free Goodness

For those with gluten sensitivities or Celiac disease, finding baked goods that are both scrumptious and safe to eat can be a bit of a challenge. But fear not! The world of gluten-free baking has come a long way, and these Pumpkin Swirl Brownies are proof that you don’t have to compromise on taste or texture. Sometimes I like to make brownies from scratch, but honestly gluten-free boxed brownie mixes have come a long way and there are several delicious options. Try this mix from Cup4Cup, this one from King Arthur Flour, or this almond flour version from Simple Mills.

The Pumpkin Swirl Magic

Now, let’s talk about that irresistible pumpkin swirl. Pumpkin puree, combined with a carefully curated blend of fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, brings a cozy, nostalgic essence to these brownies. The velvety, spiced pumpkin swirl not only adds a burst of autumnal colors but also introduces balance to the chocolatey richness of the brownie base.

Creating the swirl is a fun and artistic process. After preparing the brownie batter and spreading it in the baking pan, dollop spoonfuls of the spiced pumpkin mixture on top. Then, using a knife or a toothpick, gently swirl the pumpkin into the brownie batter, creating a beautiful marbled effect. The result is a visual masterpiece that’s almost too gorgeous to eat – almost!

The tender crumb of the rich gluten-free brownie base and the enticing swirls of pumpkin create a symphony of taste that’s impossible to resist.

Whether you’re hosting a cozy fall gathering, celebrating a special occasion, or simply craving a soul-soothing treat, these Gluten-Free Pumpkin Swirl Brownies are the perfect answer. Their appeal extends far beyond the gluten-free crowd – anyone with an appreciation for seasonal flavors and decadent desserts will fall head over heels for these autumn-inspired delights.

What could be better than a gluten free chocolate brownie? One that's marbled throughout with rich, creamy pumpkin! The recipe is so easy because it calls for a boxed brownie mix.

  16. I liked Kitch & Table’s FB page! Will definitely try making the brownies. Made your Banana Bread today. Delish!!! I used Pamela’s Artisan Baking Mix as I didn’t have the one from Williams-Sonoma. Last time I tried to buy that one, the store was out of it. But I like the Pamela’s products so I thought I’d try the Artisan Mix. It was good!

    1. Hi Colleen,

      So glad you liked the banana bread…it’s our absolute favorite here. I’ve also made it with my own flour blend and it worked perfectly. So glad to hear that Pamela’s works too!

      All the best,


  17. Hey Alison, do you have a GF brownie recipe that you like? I’ve tried several (most recently America’s Test Kitchen) and none of them have been quite right. I want something that has that brownie chewiness – not the cakey kind.
