Ingredients (makes 12 brownies)

 

  • 200g pumpkin purée (ideally homemade)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g almond flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 40g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 45g chocolate chips

For the topping:

  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Method:

For the pumpkin purée :

  1. Halve a pumpkin & remove the seeds and stringy stuff
  2. Place the seeds in a bowl for roasting later
  3. Chop 400g of 2-inch pumpkin pieces and place them face up on a baking tray
  4. Roast at 180 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender when prodded with a fork
  5. Allow the pieces to cool slightly before removing the skin
  6. Blitz the pumpkin pieces in a food processor/blender or just by hand until totally smooth. Depending on the pumpkin, you might need to add a little water

For the brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin purée, maple syrup, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth
  3. Mix in the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder) until smooth
  4. Fold in 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  5. Pour into prepared pan and spread to the edges. Smooth over the top with a spatula
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Brownies will not look completely cooked but as soon as the knife comes out clean, they will be done
  7. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes
  8. Make the topping by melting chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small saucepan over very low heat. Drizzle over the top of the brownies then cut into 12 squares
  9. Serve and enjoy!
