Pumpkin Brownies Recipe

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!

First Step:


2 cups pumpkin seeds
12-15 dates, pitted
2 Tbsp mesquite powder
1 Tbsp maca powder
dash of Kalahari salt 

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.

Second Step:

Simple Delicious Chocolate:

1 cup cacao butter
1 cup cacao paste (tempered or un-tempered)
¼ cup of agave or coconut sugar (coconut sugar is NOT raw, FYI)
1 tsp vanilla powder
¼ tsp Kalahari salt


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. 

Third Step:

Pour liquid chocolate mixture on top of pumpkin brownies. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set. Garnish with pumpkin seeds!
