Best Ever (Almost) Paleo Brownie

A picture says a thousand words and this one says Mmmmmm, Yummy and Scrumptious just for starters ... 

I took a paleo recipe and tweaked it by adding another egg and a bit of canned organic pumpkin. That's all I did to modify and it turned out SO much better than the original paleo one I tried. The original paleo recipe didn't have this lovely thick cakey tecture, nor did it scoop out of the pan as easily which is always a bummer! 

I had to share this little gem with you guys:) You WON'T be disappointed. Even my super picky betty crocker loving husband liked this one. 

  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 1/2 cup canned organic pumpkin (almost Paleo)
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 packages (of the small 3 count) melted trader joes brand dark chocolate bars (not quite Paleo as it has some sugar) this ends up being about 1 cup worth of dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup local honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 and mix everything together well. Put it in a (butter greased) 9x9 or a 9x17 (or whatever size that pan was i used). Put it in the oven for 35-45 minutes until the toothpicks come out clean! 

Cool for 15 minutes and slice it up with a sharp knife and scoop with a fork!
