Here's a delicious recipe I found on a blog called Thisprimallife.
I made these when my sister's family was visiting, and they were a hit. Warning -- they are not very sweet - they just have a mild sweetness to them from the honey. Very moist! I also added about 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, and I made these in mini muffin tins. I sprinkled mini dark choc. chips on a few for the kids.
Almond Butter Pumpkin Brownies
Feel free to get creative with substitutions. Try other nut butters, other forms of squash, other sweeteners, spices, mix-ins, the possibilities are endless. I made several batches using either fresh squash that I steamed and mashed or canned pumpkin. I preferred the fresh squash to the canned pumpkin, but the latter worked perfectly well and seemed appropriate for the upcoming holiday.
Consider topping with applesauce and/or whipped cream for a delicious dessert.
Ingredients (only 5!):
1 cup almond butter
¾ cup mashed pumpkin or other squash, canned or steamed
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp baking soda
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 in pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serves 8.
Some reviewers added cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice and/or nuts, dark choc chips/coconut, cream cheese frosting.
