Pumpkin Blondies

If there’s one recipe that has me (fall)in’ in love this #pumpkinszn, I think it might be this one 🍁 🎃

  • Pumpkin Puree (not pumpkin pie filling)- makes the cake super fudgey and adds tons of nutrients like Vitamin A.
  • Eggs- helps create structure! Can sub for flax egg if vegan.
  • Granulated Sweetener- I used monk fruit sweetener; can replace with any granulated sweetener, but it will affect nutritional value unless it’s a zero calorie alternative.
  • Vanilla Extract- helps add flavor!
  • Coconut Flour- probably my favorite flour! It has a high protein and fiber content, and is super absorbent, meaning you need less of it (this ingredient is very difficult to substitute).
  • Tapioca Flour- gives the cake structure and and helps hold it together (can sub cornstarch, cassava flour, or arrowroot).
  • Baking Soda- leavening agent to help cake rise.
  • Pumpkin Spice & Cinnamon- essential for flavor!
