Healthier Brownies

I read about this recipe and couldn't resist trying it, even though it calls for a brownie mix ;) I am sure you could substitute your own dry ingredients for the brownie mix if you feel so inclined!

These are so fudgy and rich and they just taste chocolately, not like pumpkin at all! I feel healthier already with all those flavenoids and anti-oxidants!!

Pumpkin Brownies
1 box brownie mix ( I used double chcoloate Ghiradelli brownie mix)
1 can pumpkin puree ( I used Libby's)

Mix together and pour into a greased 8x8 pan and baked at 325 degrees F for 40-45 minutes...they will be soft.
Let them cool and put in the fridge covered with foil for a few hours to get super fudgy!

Here is the next healthy brownie recipe I am going to try...let me know if you try it before I do!

Garbanzo Bean Brownies
1 1/2 c. dark chocolate chips
2 c. garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
4 eggs
¾ cup brown rice syrup
1/2 tsp baking powder

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl melt chocolate chips in microwave for 2 minutes.
In a blender or food processor, combine beans and eggs.
Add brown rice syrup, baking powder, and chocolate, process until smooth.
Pour batter into a 9” or 8X8” non-stick pan.
Bake for 45 minutes.
