I'm working on a couple different pumpkin recipes because I wanted to try different things this year. I was going to make cookies but last minute I changed my mind and decided to make brownies/blondies. They turned out really well too. I think I even converted my daughter too. She has never been one to like pumpkin pie but once she smelled these baking, she said she needed to try one. She ended up having two, ha ha.
This is a super simple recipe too. Let's get to it. Here is what you will need.
1 cup oat flour
1 cup pumpkin
1 mashed banana or 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 flax eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 to 3/4 cup maple syrup (depends on how sweet you like it)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mash the banana.
Add the pumpkin, flax eggs, syrup and mix to combine.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix to combine.
Line an 8 X 8 with unbleached parchment and pour the batter in making sure it's evenly spread out in the pan.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The time will depend on your oven.
Let the brownies completely cool in the pan. Remove and cut into squares and enjoy.
