No Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of These Brownies

Pumpkin Vegan Brownies... I think.

I love brownies. There’s something about the chocolaty, chewy, moist middles, surrounded by crispy, crunchy edges. I decided to try my hand at making a healthier alternative to regular brownies.

I came across multiple references to substituting all the liquid ingredients for a can of pureed pumpkin. No oil, no eggs, not even any water. Just pumpkin. Everyone said that it was just like eating a regular brownie.

They were dead wrong. It had the consistency of dense, bread pudding. Like a moist cake collapsed in on itself. It was chewy just like a brownie, but it verged on almost rubbery.

If you MUST make them, all you need to do is take your favorite brownie recipe (whether it’s from a box or from scratch) and replace all the liquid ingredients with a 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin. Bake as directed.
