If you’re looking for an easy pumpkin brownie recipe, then look no further. Not only are these easy healthy pumpkin brownies made with the goodness of almond flour. I’ll show you everything you need to make them dairy free brownies too. This recipe also makes a great option if you’re looking for a healthy fall snack that is sure to please. 

Why Put Pumpkin in Brownies

I hadn’t either. But then as I was trying to think of a few fall recipes, this healthy brownie recipe came to mind. I already know what you may be thinking. 

But guess what? You can hardly taste the pumpkin (if at all). The real benefit to adding pumpkin puree to these brownies are the nutritional benefits. 

Pumpkins are packed with vitamin A and filled with fiber. At the same time, you can turn to these brownies if you’re in search of a guilt-free chocolate fix. 

Ingredients: Healthy Pumpkin Brownies Recipe

Dry ingredients 

1 cup blanched (super fine) almond flour
½ cup cacao powder

tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/3 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (may opt for dairy free chocolate chips to make this recipe completely dairy free)

Wet ingredients 

½ cup canned pumpkin purée
2 eggs (room temperature)
½ cup pure maple syrup
½ banana (mashed)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (may opt for dairy free chocolate chips to make this recipe completely dairy free)

Dairy Free Pumpkin Brownies 

If you’d like to make dairy free pumpkin brownies, I have good news for you. This recipe contains no butter and depending on what cacao powder and chocolate chips you use, this recipe can be made dairy free too. To do that, start with 100% cacao powder. 

Of course, you can use any chocolate chips you’d like to make these brownies. However, these chocolate chips  are free from gluten, soy, dairy, GMO’s, wheat, tree nuts and more.  

Tools to Make Healthy Pumpkin Brownies 

Now that we’ve covered what ingredients you’ll need, let’s talk about the tools you need. It’s always important to have the right tools for the job. 

In this case, you don’t need much to make these brownies right.

Q&A

Can I use leftover pumpkin pie mix in this batter?

If you have leftover canned pumpkin pix mix, you can use it. But, we sure to omit the maple syrup in this recipe. 

How to Store Your Healthy Pumpkin Brownies 

If you happen to have any leftover brownies after making these, just store them in a covered container inside a refrigerator for up to five days. 

To freeze these brownies, bake according to instructions and cool completely. Cut them into nine 1x1in squares and store in freezer bags between pieces of waxed paper. 

What to Serve with Pumpkin Almond Flour Brownies

Serve these homemade healthy pumpkin brownies with a glass of homemade almond milk. It may also pair well this this some golden chai latte or warm molasses milk. 

Recipe Substitutions

Make delicious sweet potato brownies by swapping out canned pumpkin puree for pureed sweet potatoes. 

For Fudgy Pumpkin Brownies 

If you prefer a fudgier consistency to your brownies, I’ve found that mixing in the chocolate chips into the brownie batter versus sprinkling them on top, will result in a fudgier product. It just depends on what your preference is.
