This recipe was such a pleasant surprise! Crumbly, crunchy, yet soft and warm. So good. And even better cold the next day after sitting in the fridge! Yummmm.
- 1 chocolate brownie quest protein bar
- 2 TBSP pumpkin purée
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup almond meal/flour
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 TBSP vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Microwave the chocolate brownie quest bar for 8 seconds to soften. Cut into 8 pieces and press into the bottom of 8 mini cupcake molds that’ve been sprayed with nonstick spray. Mix the pumpkin purée, melted coconut oil, almond meal/flour, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla protein powder. Distribute amongst each cupcake mold on top of the brownie. Bake at 350 F for 13-15 minutes.
Mix 1 tsp coconut oil with 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder and drizzle on top.
I actually REALLY liked them better the next day after they’d cooled in the fridge! So if you have the patience (it’s hard, I know ;p), I suggest eating them cold!
