1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup drippy almond butter (can sub for peanut, cashew or nut alternative spread)
1/4- 2/3 cup cocoa powder (more cocoa yields a richer taste)
frosting of choice (optional) or use low calorie whipped topping
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a small 4 x 6 or 6 x 6 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside- A smaller pan yields thicker brownies.
2. Add all your ingredients into a high speed blender, food processor or large bowl and mix until fully immersed and a thick batter is formed.
3. Transfer brownie batter to loaf pan and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a skewer comes out just clean. Allow the brownies to cool in the pan completely before either frosting to slicing into bars.
4. Notes. For a sweeter brownie, sub half a cup of mashed banana. These brownies taste amazing when refrigerated and enjoyed chilled - They can be kept for up to 5 days there, and are also freezer friendly.
