Pumpkin Spice Quinoa Brownies

For when you want brownies and it’s the middle of fall. I added pumpkin and cinnamon to these brownies because I didn’t have applesauce, and  it felt like a no brainer because applesauce and pumpkin puree have a similar consistency. Plus, pumpkin has a sweet flavor and is loaded with fiber and nutrients.

Enjoy these soft, extra chocolatey brownies.
