Yummy! I just made this with a sweet potato/carrot puree. The “pumpkin” layer really does taste like pumpkin pie filling.

Made them with black beans. Delicious. Great alternative to pumpkin pie and much easier. Thank you. You are the queen of the healthiest tastiest deserts

Can arrowroot be substituted for something else?

tapioca starch or corn starch

Made these last night, they’re quite tasty. For folks who are wanting to make these because they want a brownie I would suggest doubling the batter/brownie layer and halving or even quartering the pumpkin layer quantities. The pumpkin layer is pretty strong (and tasty, imo) and it feels more like you’re eating chocolate crusted pumpkin pie than a brownie.

What is a good substitute for cashew? My son is allergic.
