I had the hankerin’ for something chocolate AND pumpkin, so I went on a recipe search and found this yumminess.  I made some slight adjustments to the original recipe that I found on Living Healthy With Chocolate, so you may want to check that one out, but I’m quite fond of how these nuggets turned out!!  This is a perfect fall sweet treat!!!  It’s pumpkin perfection!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbs of Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 eggs, 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2  teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s gluten free flour
  • 1 1/2  teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  •  2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  •  1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. in a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, Greek yogurt, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla and honey
  2. in a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon and cocoa powder
  3. using a rubber spatula, gently mix dry ingredients into wet to form a batter. Do not over mix. The batter will be thick.  Add in chocolate chips into the batter if desired.  (The answer is – YES it is desired!)
  4. sprinkle chocolate chunks or chips on top and bake at 350°F until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately 30-40 minutes
