Also since I'm obsessed with Squarebars (my go-to treat or dessert when I'm not making my own), I decided to create a fancy breakfast of a honey pumpkin brownie, dollop of plain coconut milk yogurt and 1/3 of a chopped up protein bar. I have to say, my day became much better after that! It looks and tastes pretty decadent, but is super filling, nutritious and protein-packed. I promise you won't be disappointed with this easy healthy brownie...plus pumpkin. Pumpkin in everything is usually a good idea in my world.
Honey Pumpkin Brownies
1 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup raw honey
1/4 cup + 2 TBSP raw cacao powder
1/3 cup nondairy chocolate chips
1. Grease an 8" pan with oil, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Stir all ingredients well in a large mixing bowl, and fold chips in last. Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chocolate chips depending on your preferred level of sweetness; I used 1/3 cup of Enjoy Life nondairy chocolate chunks, chopped up, and it was sweet enough!
3. Bake 30-35 min or until an inserted toothpick or knife comes out mostly clean. Let sit at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.
