Ah yes, I finally veganized a recipe on my own! I am pretty excited about this! I found this recipe on Pinterest, (where else, of course!) and decided I wanted to try it only. Only problem? We don't eat eggs anymore. So what's a girl to do? Figure it out of course. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out, except for one detail. I used Splenda brown sugar, (all I had) so they have a bit of an aftertaste. I would recommend using regular from now on. So here is my version of Pennies on a Platter's version of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Brownies.
Gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars
1 can of Pumpkin
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup unbleached (or any kind) flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp flax meal (optional)
1 tsp unsweetened coca powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chai spice (or pumpkin pie spice)
pinch of sea salt
2/3 cup brown sugar packed
1/2 cup dark and semisweet chocolate chips mixed
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients and spread into a greased (I used coconut oil) baking pan of your choice. I used a 9x13, but if you want them thicker, a 9x9 or 8x8 would work too.
Back 15-20 mins. You want the edges to start separating from the pan. These bars a gooey from the pumpkin, so the toothpick method isn't the best.
Cool 10 mins.
Sit down and enjoy! Hope you enjoy this recipe. I am as I type this!
