The holidays are here and that means unhealthy temptations abound. At 34 weeks pregnant, I’m doing my best to control my cravings but that’s a lot harder this time of year. If I have junk in my house, I’ll eat it. It’s that simple. Most people are the same way. Yet, we all have times where we need a little something to satisfy our sweet tooth and it’s awesome when we can do that guilt-free. If you’re needing something healthy that still tastes yummy, or maybe a dessert to bring to your kid’s school or holiday parties that you know you can eat without feeling horrible, give these pumpkin brownies a try! No, they don’t taste like a brownie from the Ghirardelli store but they also don’t taste like garbage. If I was craving a brownie, this recipe would definitely satisfy me! I was a little skeptical considering how healthy the ingredients are, but I was pleasantly surprised by how good they were and so was my toddler. You know I wouldn’t share them if they weren’t good, so go ahead and whip these up. Be sure to let me know what you think when you do! Happy pumpkin season! 🙂
