Pumpkin Spice Brownies

So I know Halloween isn’t really a big thing in Australia but I thought it was a good excuse to get creative in the kitchen! These brownies are made with cooked pumpkin ( hello sneaky veg!) and yummy wholesome ingredients for a perfect pick me up treat. If you like these a little more indulgent you can also add some dark choc chips. Note the protein powder is optional and will also work without
