Homemade pumpkin brownies ready to eat.

Feed Your Body Friday: Pumpkin Brownies

It’s fall so you know what that means, everywhere you look everything is pumpkin flavored!

This got me inspired, how could I combine my two sweet loves? Delectable pumpkin brownies!

You may find me too pretentious if I told you that this brownie recipe is the best in the world, the pumpkin purée with cream cheese added in this recipe make all the difference! The texture is lighter, more mellow, melting, and slightly moist.

This brownie combines all the characteristics of my definition of the perfect brownie!

I love healthy food and healthy recipes, but this one is not one of them! But you know what; sometimes it’s ok to let go and treat yourself with something sweet and greedy.

What’s more comforting than a slice of warm, melting brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? NOTHING!
