Grain & Dairy FREE Pumpkin Brownies

It’s Vata season in Ayurveda.  This time of year we tend to crave rich, warming foods.  There’s a reason for that!  It’s brisk, windy, and rough outside; taking in the opposite quality of our foods is a great way to feel balance.  The sweetness of the maple syrup, the grounding quality of pumpkin, and the rejuvenating ashwagandha is the perfect recipe to ground and balance during what an be a hectic season for some.  Enjoy these brownies guilt free!
