Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with pan spray.

  1. For brownie layer:  In a mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, pumpkin or squash, vanilla, and agave nectar until mixed.  Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and mix.  Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into muffin tin.  Spread around evenly so it is smooth and flat.
  2. For pumpkin layer:  In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, vanilla, agave nectar, and milk.  In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and pumpkin pie spice.  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well until the clumps are gone.  Now add about 2 tablespoons of the pumpkin mixture on top of each brownie in the pan.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes.  Move to the fridge and allow to chill for 1-2 hours.  Garnish with whipped cream and pumpkin seeds.
