Noor’s Crust-less Nutty Pumpkin Treat

I just love pumpkin, in everything. I make pumpkin cookies, cakes, breads, pies, and well this sort of treat that falls between a fudgy brownie and a pie, without a crust. Pumpkin is very high in Vitamin A, beta-carotene, and fiber. It’s very easy and best of all requires no flour, evaporated milk, or even a crust! 

Ingredients:
16 oz 100% Organic Pure Pumpkin

2 Organic Cage-Free eggs

1 medium banana

½ cup raw walnuts, ground* and some chunks

½ cup raw almonds ground*

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

*Use a food processor or a small coffee grinder to grind the nuts. If you dislike the feeling of chunky walnuts in your usual brownies or desserts, grind them completely as you would with the almonds. 

Directions:

STEP 1 
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a spring form or 9inch pan.Ground raw walnuts and almonds using your food processor or grinder.

Place in the grinder, and make almonds fine as powder. Feel free to completely grind your walnuts as well (I kept big walnut chunks for a crunch).

Just like that…

STEP 2

Mix all the (dry) last five ingredients (ground nuts and spices) in a large mixing bowl.

I used a spring-form pan, you can use any kind.

This is what I like about spring-form pans.

Slice and eat.

    Thanks. Remember you can always improvise ingredients (the nuts, spices, even the pumpkin). Enjoy.
