Pumpkin Brownie
Trust me this is AMAZING!
Brownie Layer:
1 cup canned pumpkin 
1/2 cup + 3 tbsp sugar 
1/4 cup margarine, softened 
3/4 cup white flour
1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract 
1 tbsp cornstarch  
1/4 cup cocoa powder 
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp baking soda

Pumpkin Pie Layer:
1 cup canned pumpkin 
2 tbsp cornstarch 
1 tsp pure vanilla extract 
1/3 cup sugar 
3 tbsp almond milk 
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp nutmeg)

Pecan Fudge Topping:
1/4 cup margarine 
1/2 cup brown sugar 
1/3 cup flour 
3/4 cups chopped pecans


1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a pie pan.
2. For brownie layer: In a stand mixer or by hand, mix together the coconut oil, pumpkin, vanilla, and sugar until blended well. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking, soda, sea salt and mix until incorporated. Take the entire mixture and place in pie pan. Wet spatula and spread around evenly so it is smooth.
3. For pumpkin layer: In a large bowl mix together the pumpkin, vanilla, and milk. In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well until all clumps are gone. Now add on top of brownie mixture. Garnish with grated chocolate (I used a lemon zester to grate the chocolate).
4. For Pecan topping: Mix all ingredients until well combined and sprinkle on top of the pie.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350F. Remove from oven and cool for 20-30 minutes and then move to the fridge to chill for 1.5 hours.
6. Serves approx 8-12 slices.

I know it looks like a long and complicated recipe but its not that bad and the end result is worth the effort! I hope everyone has a great day and please don't forget to vote (it takes less then 30 seconds!) and tell others to do so to! See you tomorrow with my recipe for Chana Masala!
