Almond Butter “Brownies”

So simple a "caveman" could make it! (Get it? haha, it's a Paleo recipe!)

Seriously, this is one of the easiest paleo baked good recipes I've found! No need to buy almond flour or coconut flour! If you're craving something "cheat-like" this is a great way to satisfy!

I made this with pureed pumpkin, but since that makes it very similar to the last pumpkin cake I posted, I'll let you know you can use smushed banana or (natural) applesauce here!
Almond Butter (Pumpkin) Brownies

adapted from

1 cup almond butter
¾ cup pureed pumpkin (or squash, banana, or applesauce)
1 egg
2 Tbsp Agave
1 tsp baking soda

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 8 x 8 in pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle top with cinnamon. Serves 8. (If you are doing the challenge, either don't add agave, or make as written, cut into 8 equal pieces and limit the number of pieces you eat in a day)

Options: This recipe is easily adaptable! I'm thinking about adding unsweetened cocoa next! Other options, raisins, coconut flakes, pumpkin pie spice...if you aren't doing this challenge, add 1/4 of honey or maple syrup, or add chocolate chips! Very versatile recipe here!!!
