  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a small bowl, prepare the flax egg and set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the brownie base ingredients, as well as the prepared flax egg, and stir to combine for a smooth batter.
  4. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all the pumpkin peanut butter layer ingredients and stir to combine for a thick frosting texture.
  5. Now grease an 8x8 baking pan with some coconut oil and pour in the brownie base. Distribute it evenly in the pan and smooth the top.
  6. Now layer on the pumpkin peanut butter mixture as evenly and smoothly as you can over the top of the brownie base. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips if desired.
  7. Bake the brownies in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely before slicing.


I cut these into 9 big squares, but you can also make 12 small 2x2 inch squares if you want a smaller treat to serve.
They can be stored in a covered container for a few days or sliced and frozen.
