These brownies are really light, chewy and packed full of fibre, and even though they don’t have very much sugar they still taste like a treat, (once they are cooked you don’t taste the pumpkin!)

1 cup pureed pumpkin or sweet potato
1/3 cup  hot coffee
1/3 cup  chocolate chips
2 tablespoons  coconut oil
2 eggs ( 2 tbsp pureed chia seeds with equal parts water )
1/2 cup  coconut sugar
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
1/2 cup  whole wheat flour or gluten free baking flour (I like cloud nine or coconut flour)
1/2 teaspoon  baking powder
3/4 cup  cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon  sea salt

1. Heat the oven to 350 F and oil a muffin tin to prevent sticking

2. Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and coffee in a large bowl

3. Pour the hot coffee over the chocolate chips and mix until melted

4.  Mix the chocolate chip mixture with the rest of the ingredients

5. Pour the brownie batter into your muffin tin filling them up about 1/3 of the way
