Maybe another brand of cake mix might be better. That is a lot of sugar.

Oh here - This is a DIY recipe that sounds better:

For the dry cake mix
1 cup cocoa
2 1/2 cups vanilla sugar
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.

taken from a newsletter from Hungry girl.
Thanks for the recipe love! Those are really good questions. I can see why you'd think pumpkin would make chocolatey treats taste more like pumpkin-y desserts, but it doesn't! Here's the lowdown on why I use pumpkin in these recipes and why it won't affect the way they taste...

It eliminates the need for common fattening ingredients. Pure pumpkin adds so much moisture to brownies that there's no need to add eggs, oil, and butter. When you mix the stuff with devil's food cake mix (yes, cake mix for brownies!), you get a perfectly fudgy brownie texture and none of those unnecessary calories.

Pumpkin is low in calories and packed with fiber. An entire can has only around 150 calories and about 15g fiber... WOW! Just make sure that you buy canned pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling/mix, which has WAY more calories and sugar. Libby's has the BEST canned pure pumpkin, by the way...

Unlike the sweetened and spiced pie filling, pure pumpkin is pretty mild and doesn't have any added salt, sugar, or flavorings. So no need to worry about every batch of brownies tasting like Turkey Day dessert. Once it's mixed with devil's food cake mix, rich chocolate flavor is all you'll taste!
It really is just cake mix and pumpkin...no eggs or butter or anything else.
This is the base and then to make different kinds of brownies she uses other things like nuts, caramel etc. You can get those recipes there and all under 200 cal. most are 148.
