Perfect for the holidays, bite into the taste of fall with these dense and deliciously chewy pumpkin brownies that are laced with semi-sweet chocolate chips.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Set the bowl aside for now.
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), whip together the butter, brown sugar, egg, and pumpkin puree.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, then mix well.
Turn off the mixer and toss in the chocolate chips. Use a spatula to gently fold them into the batter.
Pour the batter into a 9×13 baking dish covered with parchment paper or aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray, then bake.
