1/3 c. no-sugar-added applesauce
2/3 c. flour
1/4 c. honey. To make it vegan, replace with granulated sugar or brown rice syrup.
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. cocoa. I used 2/3 Dutch process cocoa powder, and 1/3 regular cocoa powder.
Chocolate “chips.” I used chopped Candy Cane Kisses to give the brownies a festive color. Use non-dairy chocolate or carob chips for a vegan recipe.
