Vegan Pumpkin Brownies
Pumpkin brownies are chocolaty, gooey and absolutely delicious. No one will ever guess that they are secretly healthy. Plus they are easy to make and it can all be done in one bowl.
I have a weakness for anything chocolate, especially love fudgy and chewy brownies. I created this recipe so I can have my chocolate and not feel guilty about it. The main ingredients in the recipe are pumpkin and oats. Sounds crazy, but they come out perfect.
My kids request these brownies quite often and their friends enjoy them too. I don’t mind letting them eat these for a treat. They have a lot less sugar and fat then a traditional recipe, but still have all of the chocolaty goodness.
The key to getting the brownies right is to grind old fashioned oats as finely as possible. It should resemble regular flour. Also make sure that you use plain canned pumpkin instead of pumpkin pie filling.
Also try banana bread for another healthy sweet treat.
