Gluten and dairy free pumpkin brownies

This is a recipe I created.I had some pumpkin and was wanting to make something other than pie but didn’t feel like searching online.

For this you’ll need

1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup of veggie oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup of cocoa
2 cups of flour (I use Walmart’s gluten free All-purpose baking flour)
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla

Optional:
Walnuts
Chocolate chips

I added the sugar and cocoa to taste

Mix the sugar and vegetable oil until smooth, add in the cocoa, eggs, flour, baking powder and vanilla. Mix in the pumpkin puree until smooth then fold in chocolate chips or walnuts.

Pour into a greased pan and bake at 350 until a toothpick or knife comes out clean.

 

Allergy Friendly Recommendations

Disclaimer, this post has some affiliate links, I will get a small commission for the links but I will only post brands and links that can be trusted- I am specially searching for items I have, in fact, used. I also promise I will not be doing these too often.

If you’re like me, you need to keep allergy/intolerance friendly snacks around.
I lucked out with having one child who is able to eat normal foods but Enjoy Life has been a lifesaver for me with my youngest. Every product we have purchased has been a winner. The chocolate chips and chocolate candy bars have been a regular in the house. I use the chocolate chips as snacks lol

I cannot give my daughter the same foods over and over but she’s not a huge breakfast person. We found these breakfast bars- easy to eat on the go (school drop off or on the way to grocery shop) and delicious.

Of course, all children LOVE waffles and pancakes. Enjoy Life also has these for a fast pre-drop off breakfast. Great for the whole family.

You also have to have snacks. These nut and seed packs are just the right blend of sweet and savory. They are healthy, guilt free snacks for the whole family.

These along with the chocolate chips I posted in the top picture and the soft cookies are go to snacks and breakfast foods in our home, especially since transitioning to the gluten free and dairy free life. I eat a lot less since being gluten free for as long as i have, but I’m not forcing my daughter to give up foods she likes just because of an intolerance. Enjoy Life has one of the healthiest ingredient lists of the other brands available.

Mold into several logs in whatever thickness you want and put on a greased cookie sheet
