1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup (can use honey/agave)
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup protein powder (I recommend Gainful!)*
1/4 cup oat flour (for paleo version, sub 1/4 cup oat flour for 1/4 cup more almond flour)
1/4 cup Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener (discount code: KTLEO)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice OR nutmeg
the extra love
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I recommend sugar-free Lily's)
handful of pumpkin seeds (optional, as always!)
* if you're picky about protein powders, you can omit the protein powder & oat flour for 1/2 cup coconut flour!
