Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate, Pumpkin, and Warm Fall Spices Theme Week.
Today's Grain Free Brownie mix with Almond Flour was from Bob's Red Mill (Milwaukie, OR). (I added pumpkin and spices* to this mix.)
Aroma notes included: chocolate (cake, ganache), pumpkin pie spices, very faint nut and molasses.*
The texture was smooth, and made slightly moister and more coherent from added (canned) pureed pumpkin.
Flavor notes included: sweet chocolate (cake, brownie), and pumpkin spice(s).
These cake-like brownies were sweet. The inclusion of pumpkin and spices* added warm flavor depth and complexity, and helped balance the sweetness.
Ingredients (dry mix): Organic Coconut Sugar, Blanched Almond Flour, Cassava Flour, Cocoa (Processed with Alkali), Cocoa, Salt.
*Added to the mix: 7 oz. canned pumpkin, eggs, olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, cardamom, and 1 tablespoon of molasses
