Secretly Healthy Fudge Brownie Ingredient
Pumpkin: This secret ingredient might shock some of you. Pumpkin…in brownies?! I promise you can’t even taste it! This bright orange magic is what makes these healthy brownies SO FUDGEY! If you are a fan of ooey-gooey brownies, then you’ll definitely be a fan of these.
How is Pumpkin Healthy?
According to Jaclyn London (MS, RD, CDN), “One cup of pumpkin contains more vitamin A than a cup of kale, more potassium than a banana, and more fiber than 1⁄2 cup of quinoa.”
Pumpkin contains antioxidants that boosts your immune system. Perfect for those fall sniffles! It also has minerals such as iron and magnesium that help regulate blood pressure. One cup of pumpkin also contains 20% of your daily fiber intake! (Read more about pumpkin here)
Knowing the health benefits from our secret ingredient (pumpkin) can give you peace of mind knowing that you are eating a healthy treat. Some other healthy ingredients in these brownies are coconut sugar and cacao powder. I wrote a post on these ingredients and their benefits you can check out here: Superfood Pantry post. You can feel confident, not guilty after eating these healthy fudge brownies.
One Bowl Secretly Healthy Fudge Brownies!
What I love about this healthy fudge brownie recipe is that you only use one bowl. I normally whip em together in 10 minutes and bake for 25 minutes. Just clean up and wash the bowl while they are in the oven and voila! The kitchen is clean, the house smells like a chocolate factory and you have an amazing dessert for later.. or now! That’s my kind of baking.
