Who doesn’t love a brownie? Chocolate cookie goodness in fudge-y cake form! These brownies are not your average brownies: the base is pumpkin puree, which is loaded with fiber and tons of antioxidants, plus the almond butter is a great source of protein, which makes these brownies nutritionist-approved.
Makes 12 brownies
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 3/4 cup almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 6 personal servings CBD of your choice
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (optional)
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8×8 pan with an oil or butter of your choice and line the bottom and sides with baking paper. Using a stand mixer, combine the pumpkin puree, almond butter, cocoa powder, maple syrup, baking soda, salt, egg, CBD and pumpkin pie spice. Mix until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan using the parchment paper to lift. Either let them cool completely or enjoy right away!
