It's November and for some reason, I've craved pumpkin spice dessert. I'm not a big dessert eater, but it's sounded so good. I even sent my husband to the store with a grocery list and included a pumpkin pie type desert if he could find something at least somewhat healthy and small quantity. Nothing!
So I decided to make something myself. I'm so glad the store didn't have what I was looking for! These are healthy, low sugar and no nasty toxic preservatives in them. Not only that, they are DELICIOUS and super easy to make. You are welcome!
2 cups blanched almond flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cloves
2 ½ teaspoons ground Ceylon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
4 large eggs
1 can pumpkin
½ cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup of chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 350º.
Use regular size muffin tins and either line with paper cups or grease. Stir all dry ingredients together.
In separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients together and then pour into dry and stir well until all combined.
Fill each muffin cup to near the top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until done - test with clean toothpick.
Cool in pan then remove and complete cooling.
Store in fridge.
