Paleo Praline Nut Fudge Brownies

This recipe was invented as a preemptive attempt to ward off chocolate cravings after my knee surgery.  Holy Shitollie, they were so good!  I had to use ingredients on hand so there's a bit of a surprise.

Ingredients Brownies:
Nut Butter 1 cup (used Justin's Maple)
Coconut Milk 1 cup
Pumpkin 1 cup
Cocoa Powder 3/4 cup unsweetened 
Almond Flour 1/2 cup
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Coconut Oil 2 tablespoons
Eggs 2 large
Expresso Powder 2 teaspoons (illy)
Vanilla 1 tablespoon pure
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon 

Ingredients Toppings:
Enjoy Life Mini Chips 1/2 cup
Pecans 1/2 cup chopped
Nut Butter 1/2 cup mixed w 2 teaspoons of Agave/Honey/Maple

Mix all Brownie ingredients together using a hand held mixer or a ton of elbow grease (the batter is very thick).  Pour the Brownie batter into a 10x10 inch baking pan lined with wax or parchment paper.  Add the Toppings over batter evenly.   Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes lightly until golden brown.  If you allow the Bronies to fully cool then they will cut better (or put in the refrigerator to Chillax).
