Magic Chocolate Pumpkin Frosting

Allergen Friendly Chocolate Pumpkin Frosting Recipe

Why do I call this recipe magic? Well, delicious Chocolate Pumpkin Frosting that’s a snap to make, allergy-friendly, and gets the kiddos (and adults) to eat something reasonably healthy that feels decadent seems like magic to me. So that’s what I call it.

best chocolate pumpkin frostingI actually used this chocolate pumpkin frosting to top some banana chocolate chip muffins that I made with Enjoy Life’s Muffin Mix. The kiddo and her friends ate them all up, even though I topped the frosting with creepy spiders made with prunes, raisins and toothpicks. Here’s the muffin recipe, they taste like chocolate chip cookies, but are waaaay better for you! The Enjoy Life products are GF, vegan and top-8 allergen free, so both of these recipes are safe for everyone.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
In a large bowl, stir the muffin mix, bananas, oil, water, cinnamon and salt together until fully combined (do not over-mix). Then stir in chocolate chips.
Fill each muffin liner 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until muffins just begin to brown and a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean. Cool & enjoy!
