This morning, I made these easy to make carob pumpkin brownies! They are so simple to make yet so pleasurable too. Make them now & enjoy every bite of them! :) They are all wrapped up a lovely food gift! Yum Yum!

Read on for this delicious recipe!

Recipe: For 14  brownies!

** The dry ingredients:

1 cup + 1/2 cup organic white spelt flour

1 cup powdered coconut sugar

1 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup pumpkin purée ( fresh or canned )

2/4 cup carob powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

** The wet ingredients:

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup canola oil

2 teaspoons sherry vanilla extract


1. Preaheat your oven to 180° C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Otherwise, adjust your oven to the right temperature.

2. Take your Kenwood & place the K-paddle in. In your large Kenwood bowl, add spelt flour, sugar, carob powder, baking powder, cinnamon & baking soda. Add pumpkin purée.  Mix everything well with the K-paddle. Or if you don’t have a Kenwood, take a large bowl & add dry ingredients together until well joined.

3. In another bowl, add vegetable oil, sherry vanilla extract & water. Whisk away. Then, pour wet ingredients to dry ones & mix with your K-paddle on medium-high speed, until just joined. Pour the mix into a square or rectangular baking pan that has been lined with baking paper, spread the mix evenly out. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the centers are set or the tops aren’t shiny anymore. If you want firmer brownies, bake them longer! Take out of the oven & let the brownies cool in the pan for another 10 minutes before slicing. Leave them to rest for another 10 minutes before enjoying some of them. Leave them in your lined baking pan & place the rest into the fridge to keep. Take them out of the fridge 10 minutes before eating! Enjoy every bite of them! 😉

    These brownies are divine and tasty…pumpkin and carob = utterly divine, Sophie – I wish I can wrap them up and pack them for my flight back to Oregon! Do you have a favorite pumpkin puree brand or do you make your own puree? Have a great week!

      I make my own & freeze it for 1 year. Now, we can only buy canned in 1 o 2 English shops here in Belgium. 😦

  5. afracooking says:

    Ah, painful regret: Today in the supermarket I held a pumpkin in my hands….but I put it back 😦 Now I think if I had bought it I could whip these up tomorrow morning. Fabulous recipe!

  6. ritavegas says:

    Your brownies look luscious,moist and I love the pumpkin-cinnamon combination!!

  10. Liz says:

    oooooooo 🙂 So gooey!

  11. Very impressive! I wouldn’t have thought that such a virtuous ingredient list could create a treat so decadent. That texture looks fantastic.

  12. Ina gawne says:

    Sophie – these brownies sound scrumptious! I love this time of year with all of the fresh pumpkins – there are so many recipes to create with pumpkin that are not only healthy but super delicious too! 🙂

  13. Liz says:

    The brownies look so moist and delicious and I totally agree that they can be whisked in the morning…it’s more like making muffins. Thanks so much for sharing although I wish you could have shared a slice as well. Have a wonderful weekend.

  14. Janet Rörschåch says:

    Those look gorgeously moist, Sophie. Well done.

  15. Koko says:

    Ooh, these are decadent! They sound like a perfect combination. I think I have to make these…lucky for us, it’s very easy to get canned pumpkin in Canada. I would like to try making my own puree sometime though, and taste the difference!

  16. Sally says:

    Gosh they sound healthy but don’t look it!

  17. Hotly Spiced says:

    I love cooking with spelt. It gives such a lovely texture to whatever I’m baking. These brownies look really good and I’m sure the pumpkin makes them very moist xx

    These look really yummy, Sophie! I really love your vegan recipes, as I just stopped eating meat and dairy myself I’m in the process of going vegan myself… Although I still eat seafood at the moment and incorporate recipes with dairy for my readers I would like to add in some vegan recipes as well, and you are a big inspiration!! Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing your recipes! xoxo
