Birthdays have been in abundance recently in my world! My birthday was August and my mom & boyfriend in September, so I had to make these pumpkin almond butter protein brownies to celebrate! And it’s pumpkin season again y’all!! Plus the rich fudgy ganache is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! 🌎 They are grain free, gluten free and can be made dairy free too just use a vegan protein powder!
I don’t know about you but my favorite way to celebrate birthdays is with chocolate so these seriously hit the spot! You honestly can’t even tell they are made with healthy ingredients! Soooo much better than the boxed mixes and wayyyy better than pre made frosting which is full of garbage such as partially hydrogenated oils, sugar and vegetables oils!
- 1 cup mashed pumpkin
- 1 mashed banana
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp almond butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Mix all wet ingredients including pumpkin and banana and mix until smooth. Add dry ingredients and fold in chocolate chips.
Bake brownies in a greased 9 X 9 pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30min. Then let cool.
Add 1.5 cups enjoy life foods chocolate chunks, 1 tbsp almond butter and coconut cream ONLY out of 1 can of lite coconut milk. Microwave or heat all ingredients until chocolate has melted. Pour on top of brownies and place brownies in the freezer for 15min or in the refrigerator for 30mon. Then take out 5 min before serving (or eat straight out of the freezer which I did and they are awesome!) and enjoy! 😎✌🏼
Happy Birthday all you Leos and Virgos! 🎉🎂💕🦄
