chocolate pumpkin brownies that are vegan and gluten-free

Homemade brownies will forever be a favorite treat in our house regardless of the time of year. But in the fall season, my family loves this pumpkin brownie recipe! I love these because they are dairy-free and gluten-free…hooray!

Whip them up in under 10 minutes using your food processor or blender to keep the batter smooth and a great consistency something that gluten free brownies can sometimes have problems with.

Ingredients for brownies with canned pumpkin. Flourless and vegan.

All of those ingredients head into your blender or food processor for a good whirl and result in a creamy, beautifully textured batter.

Don’t miss my traditional old-fashioned brownie recipe, if your diet allows! And, of course, my homemade peanut butter cups are AMAZING! and a healthier option to our favorite version.

What can I sub for almond butter?

Peanut butter is the best substitute for almond butter. You’ll get the same texture and consistency but with that yummy peanut butter flavor!

Blender for blending the pumpkin brownies

Use an 8 inch pan for thicker pumpkin brownies or, like I did, a 9 inch for thinner. Completely up to you! Don’t skip the parchment paper, though!

Are they really brownies if there isn’t a good sprinkling of chocolate chips in them? I sure don’t think so. Use carob chips, if you prefer.

What if I don’t have pumpkin pie spice?

Oh hey..that’s easy to make! Pumpkin Pie Spice consists of only a few common spices that you probably have in your kitchen pantry. Also, feel free to use only cinnamon.
