Fudgy, Paleo pumpkin brownies – not just for fall, but every season of the year!

Fudgy, Paleo-friendly pumpkin brownies - enjoy this gooey goodness every season of the year! #brownie

Ahh yes, it’s that time of year again in the US, where everything turns to pumpkin.  Which I don’t mind at all – I actually have always loved pumpkin!  In soups, salads, muffins, pies, cookies etc.  But I don’t think I’ve ever put it into a brownie before.  And you know I love putting different things in brownies – especially veggies like zucchini and sweet potato – how did I not think of this before?

And these pumpkin brownies, mate (see, there’s the Australian in me coming out again!), they are fudgy, gooey and so yummy.  Why pumpkin treats are usually confined to fall/autumn, I will never know.  I could quite happily make and eat these goodies all year round.  And so should you!

Now the batter for these pumpkin brownies is very thick.  So thick that you will need your hands to spread it out in the pan.  Trust me .. you need to get your hands involved in this.  And then you get to lick your fingers enjoy the fruits of your hard labor.  Because it is seriously worth it.

And the frosting is so simple – it’s a standard one for me these days – just some almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla all stirred together!

Have I convinced you yet to go and make these fudgy pumpkin brownies?  Well, if you do, let me know what you think in the comments below.  And enjoy these – ALL year round!
