2 medium

½ cup(s), (110g)

Granulated stevia sweetener

¼ cup(s), (55g)

2 tsp, finely grated

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Lightly spray a 20cm (base measurement) square cake tin with oil. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing it to hangover 2 opposite sides.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in a medium bowl for 2 minutes or until thick and fluffy. Beat in stevia and rind. Stir in spread, pumpkin and sifted flour and cocoa. Dissolve coffee in 2 tsp boiling water and stir into brownie mixture with chocolate. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle evenly with pistachio.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until just cooked through (brownie should feel just firm to touch). Set aside to cool in tin completely. Cut into 16 bars.


TIP: You will need to cook about 400g of pumpkin for this dish.
