  • 1 cup mashed cooked butternut squash
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cold brew coffee
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (if vegan, use vegan-friendly brand)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 baking dish.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed butternut squash and the peanut butter. Stir in the maple syrup, cold brew coffee, and salt.
  • Add the cocoa powder and almond flour. Stir until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the 8x8 dish. Spread it evenly over the dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 22-27 minutes, until cooked through and a toothpick pulls out clean.
  • Let the brownies cool completely before cutting them (otherwise they’ll crumble). Enjoy!
