·  2 ½ cup (625ml) pumpkin puree

·  2 eggs

·  ½ cup (125ml) brown sugar or honey

·  1 tsp vanilla

·  ½ cup (125ml) unsweetened cocoa powder

·  pinch of salt

·  1/2 cup chocolate chips


To make the pumpkin puree:

·  500g raw pumpkin, cubed.

·  6 Tea4Kidz Apple & Berry teabags brewed in 500ml boiled water



1.  Add brewed Apple & Berry Tea4kidz to pumpkin, boil until soft and blend to make a puree. You can add a bit of extra tea to make it thinner when blending if necessary.

2.  Preheat oven to 180°C and prepare an 8×8 baking dish with grease or parchment paper.

3.  In a large bowl, mix oil and pumpkin puree, whisk in the eggs, then add sugar and vanilla.

4.  Add cocoa powder, flour, and salt, and stir until combined.

5.  Add in chocolate chips.

6.  Pour into pan and bake for 22-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Different size pans will yield different baking times.

7.  Let cool before serving.

For the topping, melt chocolate chips in the microwave with 1 tsp oil.


Dietitian’s note: Store in the fridge after completely cooling and they will become very fudgy.
