Do you love brownies?

Have you had a brownie that made your eyes open wide and mouth drop because it was sooo good?? We sure have. A few times.

Now that the holidays are close and pumpkin is everywhere, we thought pumpkin brownies sounded pretty darn good.

Gluten-free, paleo & vegan pumpkin protein brownies.

Let’s get to baking…

We hope you enjoyed the video.

Make sure to share this quick and easy flourless brownie recipe with your family and friends.

How did we come up with this recipe?

We know a lot of you cannot find or get plantains. We wish we could send you some. Maybe we should open up a side business haha. 

We usually always make our flourless plantain brownies.

And one day we thought why don’t we try using a nut or seed butter to replace the plantains.

To the kitchen we went…and it worked.

We first made it with peanut butter. This was when we were back home in FL. Our mom loves chocolate and peanut butter.

Why not make brownies, right? Our thoughts exactly.

And honestly we’ve made them about 5 more times since then.

We have tried…

  • tahini. Worked.
  • pumpkin seed butter. Worked.
  • sunflower seed butter. Worked.
  • peanut butter. Worked.

Really any nut or seed butter would work. Change it up every time like we do.


Being girls that have skin and digestive issues we have to be careful of our sugar intake. These brownies are the perfect balance for us and our skin.

We love desserts and love creating recipes that our skin and stomachs like. And we know yours will too!

Now if you prefer chocolate and peanut butter we got a video for you too!

If you love peanut butter you’ll love this pumpkin brownie recipe.

These protein pumpkin brownies are made from 6 main ingredients, which you probably have on your shelf.

  • Nut or seed butter
  • Cocoa or chocolate protein
  • Maple syrup
  • Coconut butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Pumpkin puree


Make sure to share this recipe with your chocolate peanut butter pumpkin loving friends.

Notes about the recipe:

To keep it 100% paleo do not use peanut butter and use your favorite protein powder or cocoa powder.

For the protein powder we used chocolate pea protein.

These are super rich in chocolate as we used chocolate protein powder. If you desire a rich chocolate brownie use cocoa powder instead of using chocolate protein powder.

If you don’t like fudgy moist brownies do just 4 tablespoons pumpkin instead of the 6.

These brownies are delicate so make sure they cool completely.

These protein pumpkin brownies are egg-free. Many paleo brownies out there you see are made with a lot of eggs, so this recipe is for those of you looking for egg-free and grain-free brownies.

Don’t have nut or seed butters around, make yourself plantains brownies. They are paleo and egg-free too.

Thank you.

Not sure what I did wrong but the brownies came out raw…… like unable to hold their shape. They can’t be cut in squares. They can only be eaten with a spoon, which is what I’m doing, but I’m just wondering why it didn’t work. I used peanut butter for the nut butter and cocoa powder instead of protein powder.
They’re delicious so I’d love to make them again. Should I add some eggs?

purelytwins October 23, 2015 - 1:01 pm

Not sure what happened. They are delicate brownies, maybe try just 4 tablespoons pumpkin.

Nikki November 28, 2016 - 8:06 am

What can I use instead of coconut butter?

purelytwins November 28, 2016 - 5:02 pm

Just replace the coconut butter with more nut or seed butter that you are using.
