These are the healthy Paleo brownies of your dreams! They are so tender and chocolatey, it’s hard to believe they’re also gluten- and dairy-free.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins
  • Yields: 8 Brownies


1 cup canned pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)

1/2 cup unsweetened salted almond butter (if not salted, add a pinch of sea salt to recipe)

5 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tsp JJ Virgin Sprinkles or powdered monk fruit (or to taste)*

oil for pan


1Preheat oven to 350F.

2Generously oil an 8”x4” loaf pan with coconut oil or avocado oil.

3Beat together the ingredients in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer.

4Transfer batter to greased loaf pan and smooth into even layer.

5Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes, until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.

6Cool in the pan completely before cutting into 8 brownies. (You can put the pan in the refrigerator to speed that process up.)

7Store leftover brownies in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 5 days. Brownies also freeze beautifully for up to 6 weeks!
