Pumpkin Brownies

Trick or TREAT! These guilt free treats are a great way to use up the flesh when carving pumpkins. They’re free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar.

Makes 12 small brownies.

Ingredients:
1 cup pumpkin flesh
1 cup organic dates
1 tbsp organic coconut oil
1/2 cup organic almonds
1/2 cup organic pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp organic cacao powder

1 tsp organic vanilla extract

Soak the dates in clean fresh water overnight or for 6-8 hours. Remove pits.
Grind the almonds and pumpkin seeds together in a blender or coffee grinder.
Mix the dates, pumpkin flesh, coconut oil, cacao, cinnamon and vanilla in a food processor until smooth.
Add in the ground almonds and pumpkin seeds and process until smooth.
Lightly grease a baking tray with coconut oil and spoon in the mixture.
