Grain Free Fudge Pumpkin Brownies | © 2013 |

This super moist fudge brownie, adapted from Specialty Cake Creation, is grain-free, dairy-free and taste delicious. I prefer to use honey to sweeten the desserts or baked goods, but if you are a vegan, feel free to replace honey with maple syrup or agave nectar.

  • 50 g 85% Dark chocolate
  • 50 g 70% Dark chocolate
  • 25 g Coconut oil
  • 150 g Honey
  • 200 g Pumpkin puree
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 40 g Almond flour
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 40 g Creamy peanut butter
  • 100 g Pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 30 g Honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a large loaf pan or an 8-inch square pan with baking paper.
  2. Place chocolates, coconut oil and honey in a large bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Add in pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla extract. Mix until incorporated.
  3. Whisk together the almond flour and cinnamon powder and add into the chocolate mixture. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
  4. Beat all the ingredients of topping and spread over the cooled brownie. Garnish with some shaved chocolate if desired. Slice and serve. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

Beautifully coloured, healthy dessert.
I'm enjoying (northern Hemisphere) pumpkin season; so many great recipes around!

Vicki Bensinger 10/11/13 07:13

These sound wonderful and rich and their color is beautiful. Did you like them? What is their texture like?

Angie's Recipes 10/11/13 09:10

@Vicki Bensinger YES! I LOVE the fudge, moist and creamy. If you like black bean brownie, then you will definitely love this. Even my picky husband (he is more a peanut butter person than brownie) ate half of it.

Rosa's Yummy Yums 10/11/13 11:33

Lusciously autumnal! A wonderful creation.

Terra 18/11/13 13:08

I am not a huge chocolate lover....BUT I for some reason can not get enough of fudge. I don't think I have ever had pumpkin fudge. Your recipe sounds and looks lovely! Hugs, Terra

Amelie G 20/11/13 21:26

Hello Angie, I have tried your recipe tonight, unfortunately it did not come out at all as I had expected. The brownie took a long time to cook although I did set the right temperature. Also did you put a special ingredient in the pumpkin puree so that it stays still? Mine was very liquid and didn't stay on top of the cake. I was a bit disappointed as the photos looked really nice and I'm a big fan of pumpkin and chocolate mix so I would like where I could have gone wrong? Thanks :) Amelie

Angie's Recipes 21/11/13 05:19

@Amelie G Sorry to hear that it didn't come out right, Amelie. I didn't add anything to stabilize the pumpkin puree. Could it be that the pumpkin puree you used contained a lot water? The baking temperature of your oven may say 350 degrees on the dial, but the temperature inside could be lower or higher. Original recipe requires 375F, but my oven is pretty new, so I've adjusted the temperature to 350F. Here is the original recipe from Regina :

Amelie G 21/11/13 12:01

@Angie Schneider

Thanks for the link Angie, my cake actually looks more the original recipe. Like you said, maybe there was something with the oven temperatures, will have to check better next time. Thanks for the reply :)
