Gluten-Free & Vegan Pumpkin Brownies

I had heard so much about combining chocolate and pumpkin together in a recipe but until now I had never tried it ! I was so pleased with the results. the sweetness of the pumpkin and the spices are such a great complement to the chocolate. You first get that chocolate brownie taste, then you are hit with the pumpkin spice. I could eat a whole batch!

Its that time of the year where pumpkin is in the air and pumpkin is everywhere. I like that I switched it up from the traditional pumpkin spice ... as much as I love pumpkin spice it gets a little tiresome and change CAN be good. This one was definitely a keeper in my books.

Here are a few of my other favourite chocolate recipes:

Healthy Banana Chocolate Brownies

I was originally inspired to make these pumpkin brownies by how well these banana brownies turned out. They were much fudgier than the pumpkin ones for some reason but just as delicious. If you liked the pumpkin one... you need to try the banana one too!
