Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
You may have some of the ingredients for this recipe in your kitchen already – the full list with measurements is found in the recipe card.
For your convenience, any specialized ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon below.
- Canned Pure Pumpkin – not pumpkin pie filling. If you can’t get canned pumpkin, you can steam some fresh pumpkin or butternut squash and blend it to a purée in a food processor.
- Honey – buy local honey if you can. Used instead of sugar in this recipe
- Almond Flour
- Coconut Flour
- Baking Powder
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – if you can’t source it you blend it yourself! See below.
- Coconut Oil
- Real Maple Syrup – a suggested topping. Use 100% pure syrup anything less will use other sweeteners such as corn syrup.
- Pecans – a suggested topping, but you could use walnuts or hazelnuts or any nut you like!
This recipe uses American cups. They’re a handy piece of kitchen equipment to have along with a kitchen food scale. Having both in your kitchen means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog as I use both cups and weighted measures.
