While you won’t taste the pumpkin in these brownies, they add a moistness that keep these a healthy, oil-free option and a satisfying dessert! These brownies use chickpea flour for a bit of added protein, and peanut butter for a chocolate-peanut butter flavour kick!
We’re always looking for healthier desserts that are delicious, satisfying and can be thought of more as a “healthy snack” than “indulgence” – and these brownies fit the bill!
With only 5g sugar, plus nearly 3g fibre and 3.5g protein per square, these brownies can serve equally as a filling afternoon snack as well as a satisfying post-dinner treat!
This recipe has only ingredients and comes together super easily – meaning there’s no excuse not to make a batch! We used pureed pumpkin and peanut butter to keep these brownies oil-free, and traded wheat flour for chickpea flour (or garbanzo bean flour) for a bit of extra protein. Chickpea flour is at most health food stores, or can be found online – it’s definitely one of the cheaper flour alternatives!
With holiday season just around the corner, these brownies would make a great (healthier) option to any gathering!
