Ingredients

For the brownies

  • 1 Cup coconut cream concentrate
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup raw organic honey
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/4 Cup organic cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/4 Tablespoon sea salt

For the frosting

  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable shortening (made from palm oil) or grass-fed butter
  • 2 Tablespoons raw organic honey
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions

For the brownies

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Place all of the ingredients for the brownies together in a mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to mix together the batter. Pour the batter into a greased 8-inch-by-8-inch baking dish (grease with coconut oil) or into greased individual mini muffin pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes if in the Pyrex dish or 20 minutes in the mini muffin pan, until your brownies pass the toothpick test. Remove from the oven and let cool.

For the frosting

Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until the frosting is combined. Use and serve at room temperature. Make sure your brownies are cool before putting it on or it will melt!

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
