No Flour Chocolate Brownies (Made With Pumpkin!)
Mmm! Yummmm! These hit the spot for that little bit of something carb-y and sweet when “dieting”. No flour, you’d never guess! The peppermint I added really makes these heavenly. This ended up being very soft and goey, but we liked it that way, so yummy. Not the conisaency of brownies, maybe because of my modifications – more like an ooey goey oh-so-yummy chocolate cake. Loved it!
1 14 oz. can pumpkin
3 large eggs (I did 2 eggs + some egg beaters egg whites, eyeballed)
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
