Dessert Taco’s – Multiple Flavours (Clean Eating, Low FODMAP, Lactose Free & Gluten Free option)

The other day I made these as the kids after school snack, what I love is that the main ingredient in the chocolate brownie batter was pumpkin!!   Kids had no idea and boy did these disappear super fast and the looks on their faces to find out they ate pumpkin was hilarious.  I really enjoyed these too, they are clean eating so perfect healthy treat with all healthy fats! Hidden vegetable…cant go wrong with this snack for the kids!!
