Serves: 16 square
  • ⅓ cup butter or butter alternative, softened (we used Earth Balance soy-Free sticks)
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ⅔ cup pure canned pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or dairy-free chocolate chips, plus extra for topping if desired
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare an 8-inch-square baking pan: cover parchment paper, allowing it to slightly overhang opposite ends.
  3. Mix butter and sugar in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until well combined and creamy.
  4. Add in eggs, pumpkin and vanilla, mix well.
  5. Whisk almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  6. Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  7. Stir in chocolate chips.
  8. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Top with a few extra chips for decoration if desired.
  9. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (or with just chocolate on it!). Tip: if the top is done and you want to cook it a few extra minutes, cover with foil.
  10. Let cool in the pan for 45 minutes. Lift the entire parchment paper out and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.
