Brownies with pumpkin (vegan, additional sugar free)

16. November 2021

These brownies have all what I wished: fudgy, chocolatey and healthy! Healthy, because they are baked with whole spelt flour and sweetened with pumpkin puree, applesauce and dates.

Pumpkin puree

I like it best when I prepare the pumpkin puree myself. I bake a small pumpkin (usually a Hokkaido) cut in small pieces without oil or spices at a 200°C hot oven. I bake the pumpkin pieces until cooked through and they begin to caramelize. Let them cool, press with a fork to create a puree and place in the fridge so that it is ready to be used.

Try it, you will love them!
