Oh My Goodness!!!!
These are unbelievably delicious. Special thanks to Sally's Baking Addiction for the idea.
Seriously, if you love pumpkin, and if you love brownies, and if want to add more protein to your diet these are for you.
The good is it's October, which means pumpkin can be found everywhere and it's pretty cheap!
The bad thing about October is it means it the start of hibernation-must-eat-everything-sweet season.
But these chocolaty, fudge treats are low in calories, fat, AND carbs. I know, you love me.
1/2 cup ground oats
3/4 cup pumpkin
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup almond milk
2 egg whites
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
10 pkt truvia or 1/4 cup baking truvia*
1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2tbs cream cheese, soften
5pks truvia or 2 tbs baking truvia*
1 egg yokes
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
*Real sugar, honey, or maple syrup can be used as a substitute but will change the nutritional information below. (1/2 sugar/honey/syryp=1/4 cup Truvia)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix all brownie ingredients in a food processor or blender until silky smooth.
Pour evenly into a non-stick sprayed 8x8in baking pan.
Beat the pumpkin puree and cream cheese together until smooth. In egg yoke and spices and blend until smooth and creamy.
Sporadically pour topping onto brownie batter and swirl with a knife.
Bake for 20-25 min, until edges gently pull away from the sides and the top gives a little push back when touched.
Let cool completely before cutting; ~1 hour in the fridge.
