Candy corn shaped pumpkin chocolate brownies

Healthy halloween candy corn pumpkin brownies – refined sugar free and refined oil free.

Ingredients

wet brownie ingredients: 

optional ingredients for natural colored frosting: 

for white – I used slightly thickened coconut butter

for orange – 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree + 2 tablespoons coconut butter + and an optional teaspoon of agave or maple syrup to add some sweetness if the pumpkin puree is bitter.

for yellow – a pinch of turmeric (just enough to get the yellow color) + 2 tablespoons coconut butter + a dash of cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Add ground almonds (or almond flour), tapioca starch, cacao powder, pumpkin spice powder, baking powder, and salt to a mixing bowl and gently combine.
  3. In a separate cup or bowl, mix pumpkin puree, plant based milk (or water), coconut butter, agave, and vanilla flavoring. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix to form a brownie batter. Add this batter to candy corn molds, I use these from Amazon (affiliate link), and bake in the oven at 350F for 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. In the mean time, you can go ahead and make the colored frosting. Using three separate bowls, pour coconut butter in each bowl. Leave one bowl alone (for white color), and then add pumpkin puree and optional agave to second bowl for orange color. And then add turmeric powder and a dash of cinnamon to third bowl for yellow color.  The frosting should be slightly thickened to be spreadable. If it’s too thin – place in the fridge for 1 to 2 minutes until thicker. If it’s too thick and doesn’t spread easily, allow to sit in room temperature for a few minutes until it softens up.
  6. Once brownies are out of the oven let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes to allow them to cool. If you place frosting on warm brownies then the frosting will melt and get messy. Frosting will harden on brownies if you place it in the fridge for a few minutes.
  7. Enjoy!!! Happy Halloween!
