Pumpkin Brownies










     The dessert options for Fall are limitless, there are so many options it has it's own zip code.  Lucky for us, Pumpkin resides in the 90210 section of the community (...that humor may be lost on you if you are only in your second or third decade of life...just trust me, it's funny).  If you type Pumpkin in my search bar you will get well over 60 recipes pop up, how's that for proof in the puddin'...err, Pumpkin!?  But my all time favorite pairing is with Chocolate, especially in Brownie form.  So the next time you're in the kitchen and hankering for a sweet, try whipping up a batch of Pumpkin Brownies and see if it turns into your #1 as well.  Each of these 9 beautiful spectacles are only 203 calories, 6g net carbs and 12g protein.  :)

     Mix first set of ingredients til well incorporated and pour into parchment lined 8X8 pan.  Mix second set of ingredients and pour over top of Brownie layer.  Mix third set of ingredients and drop by four equal dollops in each of the 4 quarters of the pan, then take a knife and swirl thru each of the Pumpkin areas.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour, remove and sprinkle with Protein Bar bits and slightly pat down.  Bring to room temperature and chill in fridge over night.  Enjoy the heck outta this baby  ;)
