Hazelnut Ale Brownies with Pumpkin

Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar has an almost caramel flavor with hints of hazelnut and it’s vegan! It’s not overly sweet, but I though the flavors would go great in a gooey chocolate brownie with bits of hazelnut of course!

These are a little richer than my normal baked goods, but they are still healthier than most brownies. While I did use white sugar, you could substitute a different sweetener, but it will change the texture a bit.
