I love everything about the Fall season. I remember one year in particular when I was a little girl my mother decided we would grow pumpkins in the garden in our backyard. With the little knowledge she had around gardening, or growing pumpkins, we planted a few seeds and hoped for the best. A few short months later our backyard was a pumpkin patch! Pumpkins filled our yard, from the size of baseballs to ones that weighed more than I did! Everyone that came over— family, friends or neighbours left with a pumpkin, or three. I think that was the first and last year my mother ever planted pumpkin seeds.
Usually after a big family dinner (most dinners) I crave a bite of dessert to finish off on a sweet note. I created these bite size chocolate gems for days even after you have had numerous helpings. They are fully loaded with (hidden vegetables)freshly roasted pumpkin, coconut, almond flour and chocolate chips (only if you wish). Soft and light in texture, sweetened with only a touch of maple syrup— these brownies are an absolute dream. You can top them with maple-coconut whipped cream for extra excitement and sweetness but they are just as delightful on their own.
