    Prep Time: 5 Mins       Cook Time: 5 Mins      Yield: 12 Muffins

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • Handful crumbled pecans or walnuts
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or a few drops of stevia extract

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Lightly grease muffin tins or 8×8 baking dish with coconut oil. A regular loaf pan doesn’t work well.
  3. Put all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix with an immersion blender or strong whisk until smooth and well incorporated. If batter is too thick, add a little coconut milk or water to thin, but don’t let it get runny at all.
  4. Scoop into greased muffin tins with a measuring cup or pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
  5. Bake for 13-18 minutes for muffins or 20-25 minutes for bread until lightly browned and set in middle.
