Flourless Pumpkin Protein Brownies (Vegan)

It's hard to believe these Flourless Pumpkin Protein Brownies are vegan, low carb, low sugar, and high protein! They have an incredible fudgey texture and rich flavor the kids couldn't get enough of. Best of all, you only need a handful of ingredients to whip these babies up!

Did you know? LIV Body is naturally sweetened with Reb M, a molecule similar to Reb A from the stevia plant, but with no bitter aftertaste. Reb M is extracted by fermenting sugarcane, and not from the actual stevia plant, which could be less problematic for those sensitive to stevia.

Protein recommendations

I used LIV Body Lean Vegan Protein in their new Chocolate flavor as well as their Oatmeal Cream Cookie flavor for the pumpkin layer. I love that there are no artificial ingredients! Their new formula actually only has a few ingredients: pea protein, alkalized cocoa powder, natural flavor, salt, Reb M (from fermented sugarcane), and iron chelate. You can use my code "SARAHWILKINS" for free shipping on all LIV Body orders.

You should be able to use another pea protein or vegan protein blend in this recipe, but I do not recommend attempting this recipe with whey, casein, collagen, or egg white protein.

Sweetener recommendations

You can use any sweetener that measures like sugar here. I like this monk fruit allulose blend, but you can also use a monk fruit erythritol blend, granulated erythritol, baking stevia, or coconut sugar (won't be calorie-free). You can also use stevia drops or more concentrated sweeteners, just make sure to adjust the amount!

Other ingredients

The only other ingredients you'll need are canned pure pumpkin, unsweetened cocoa powder, almond butter, pure vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice. Feel free to add some dairy free chocolate chips, too!

Of course, you can also bake a pumpkin and then puree the flesh. If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can swap one half teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and one quarter teaspoon each of nutmeg and ginger. You can also swap the almond butter for cashew butter or sunflower seed butter if you prefer.

Last note - if you can't be bothered with layers, mix up a double batch of either layer and enjoy either pumpkin brownies or pumpkin blondies depending on your fancy! Both are sooo good :)

Thai Chicken & Vegetable Coconut Curry

November 10, 2023

This Thai Chicken & Vegetable Coconut Curry is a scrumptious meal prep idea for all you Thai fans out there! Thai cuisine is one of my favorites, so I was stoked with how authentic this simplified thai chicken coconut curry (“kaeng phet”) came out. It’s definitely a “cheater” recipe in that I used red curry paste instead of dried chilies and all the individual curry spices. But hey, it tastes amazing and comes together easily which is what I was after! I absolutely love this served over fragrant basmati rice. You could also use riced cauliflower for a low-carb version.
