21 Day Fix Approved Pumpkin Brownies

Pumpkin Brownies

Looking for a treat that will satisfy that sweet tooth of yours on the 21 Day Fix? You absolutely need to try these pumpkin brownies! I will caution you, you are allotted ONE brownie (this recipe makes 16) which would be equivalent to one yellow treat swap. The macros on these bad boys are right in line with what a ‘treat’ should be on the 21 Day Fix – just because it is ‘clean’ doesn’t always mean it is 21 Day Fix approved! I entered the ingredients into My Fitness Pal and am happy to report they pass the test! Nutrition Information


Pumpkin Brownies - 21 Day Fix Approved
My good friend Sarah made these and passed the recipe along to me and since MY family loved them, I want to share them with all of YOU too! 🙂 Treats are a hard one for me – I LOVE baking and my husband LOVES baked goods, but lets be honest – healthy baking just doesn’t cut it sometimes!! These brownies are different though! Yes, you can tell they aren’t Betty Crocker, but KNOWING what is going into them and KNOWING that they are a healthy, clean alternative makes them taste even better!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

  1. Suzie

    I added the pumpkin in at the end because it wasn’t in the instructions, not sure if that makes any difference but wanted to let you know it’s not in the recipe!

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      THANK YOU! I just added it in…silly me! 🙂

  2. Brandi

    Could we sub almond flour for the coconut flour? I just spent a small fortune on it and don’t have coconut flour.

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Brandi, you CAN, but note that they are not a 1:1 ratio. Coconut flour tends to absorb more moisture than almond flour, so use less of the liquid ingredients (or add them as you are stirring to get to the consistency of brownie batter! 🙂 Angela

      1. Freedom

        Make your own almond flour. Plain almonds in blender. I refuse to pay $10 for a very small bag. I pay $15 for 3 lb bag of plain almonds at Sam’s and make almond flour weekly. I get 1.5 cups almond flour per 1 cup almonds.

        1. Angela Dimitrelias

          That’s awesome Freedom (hi, by the way!!) 🙂 I need to do this, I don’t bake too often, but next time I need some almond flour, I will throw some in my food processor!! 🙂 Angela

  3. Lisa Harrison

    HI Angela
    I have the Fitness Pal app…but I am not sure how you enter the ingredients to see if it ‘passes’ I would love to know how you do this…can you please share?

    Thanks so much.

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Lisa! 🙂 There was a section in the My Fitness Pal app where you can enter in the ingredients for a recipe to get the macros per serving (pretty awesome!) Angela

      1. Dana

        Hi! I’m new to the 21 day fix and trying to simplify my meal planning. I have my fitness pal app, so you have the premium version to get the macro nutrients for recipes? Once you get those macronutrients, how do you conclude that they are 21 day fix approved? Thanks for any help you can share…thank you!

        1. Angela Dimitrelias

          For the yellow treat swap – I like to keep it around 100 calories.

  4. Camille

    Yum!! Yum yum yum! So excited to try these! What would you recommend for those of us that can’t have sugar (even maple syrup, sob!)? Using stevia to sweeten and adding water for moisture? It’s the only thing that comes to mind. Thanks!

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Camille! 🙂 I have not tried this, but my first thought is apple sauce. I have no idea how they would come out, but it might work?! Let me know what you decide to do! 🙂 No sugar! You are the 3rd person I have talked to that can’t have any sugar in just the last week! 🙁 Angela

    2. Allison

      Did you try applesauce? I want to make these but I’m trying to quit sugar also

  5. Jen

    Do you melt the coconut oil first and then measure?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Jen! I didn’t melt it before, I scooped it into the measuring cup first. 🙂

  6. Mary

    Can you sub whole wheat flour?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      HI Mary! Coconut flour absorbs A LOT of liquid and the substitution with whole wheat is not 1:1. Substitute 1/4-1/3 cup coconut flour for 1 cup whole wheat flour. You will also need o decrease the amount of liquid. I would recommend grabbing the coconut flour at the store! Baking is such a science! 🙂 I haven’t mastered it yet, but I am learning! 🙂 Angela

  7. Tasha

    Can you use agave in place of maple syrup? Thanks.

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Absolutely! 🙂

  8. Emma

    I have made these a few times before, but I only add 2 ingredients, a box of brownie mix, and a can of pumpkin. Put it in the oven for about 20 minutes 375, and done. 2 simple ingredients, but you have the tastiest treat ever! Give it a try if you wish.

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      That souns good too, Emma! 🙂 Watch the sugar content on the brownie mix when you are doing the 21 Day Fix. 🙂

  9. kim

    Do these freeze well since I could only have one a day with 21 Day fix?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      That is a good question – I am not sure! Basili usually helps in the ‘eating brownies’ department, so they are usually gone fairly quickly around here…I would think you could freeze them though!

  10. KT

    Do they have a pumpkin taste to them?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      They do have a little bit of a pumpkin-y texture, but it is more of a dark chocolate taste – we really enjoy them!

  11. Kat

    Hi, just wondering if you cook the pumpkin then puree it? I have a brownie recipe with sweet potatoes that you just grate then while raw.

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      I use the canned pumpkin puree! 🙂 Super easy! 🙂

  12. Susanne

    Awesome brownies I did not have coconut flour or coconut oil so used ground almonds and rice bran oil. Funny thing was (I had not read these comments) the mixture was far too wet so I ended up adding an extra packet (of ground almonds) and after reading through this I now know why! Good info on the coconut oil absorbing so much liquid. I shared with a few friends without telling them how they were made and only a couple didn’t like them. Perfect for my gluten and dairy free friend 😊

  13. Cat

    I would love to make these for the family. Any chance you know the nutrition info such as calories, sugars, protein and such.

  14. Christine Grasser

    I made these using 1/3 honey rather than 1/2 maple syrup. They came out great!
