These brownies are an experience like no other. They are perfect for fall and the holiday season! Pumpkin seeds are prized for their amazing flavor and abundant nutrition. They are high in zinc, calcium, magnesium and essential fatty acids omega-3 and 6. We’ve paired heirloom pumpkin seeds with dates, mesquite, maca and of course, cacao. These will keep you going all day long!
Place all ingredients into a food processor. Process until dates are well incorporated. You could need more or less dates depending on how juicy they are. Press into a brownie pan and set in freezer to set while you make the chocolate covering. Follow the recipe for “Simple Delicious Chocolate” below.
Simple Delicious Chocolate:
Melt cacao butter and cacao paste over very low heat, or in an Excalibur dehydrator. Combine with sweetener, vanilla powder, and salt. In Vita-Mix, blend ingredients thoroughly.
Pour liquid chocolate mixture on top of pumpkin brownies. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set. Garnish with pumpkin seeds!
