Pumpkin, Pumpkin Everywhere!

Well I'm pretty sure I've eaten pumpkin something at about every meal this week. Almost. And if I didn't I was dreaming about eating it.  So yes, the Pumpkin Spice Latte season is in full force and since it really doesn't have pumpkin in it, we need to eat the real thing (in form of baked goods ;)!

Of course, I have only made treats filled with pumpkin but who am I kidding...things do not change.  So I will show you some pics of the luscious breads and concoctions I've made over the past few weeks.  And don't judge my pictures. All Instagram and I'm bad at taking pictures...

Here are a few new one's I've made up.  The Fallcake is just a single serving protein pancake that is super easy to make. The Pumpkin Balls contain chocolate since I needed chocolate. (NEED).  And those are easy as well. Well okay I pretty much only make easy things...oh and both contain pumpkin.duh.

Fallcake for One!

1/4 c. Egg whites or 1-2 eggs

3 Tb. Milk of your choice (I used almond)

3 Tb. Pumpkin puree

1/2 Scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used SFH)

1/2 tsp. Baking powder

1 Tb. Coconut flour

1/4 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Directions:  Blend together eggs, milk, pumpkin puree until combined.  Add dry ingredients until all blended together.  Pour into a well greased pan or griddle and cook until it's burning, I mean until you can tell it has a solid base.  Flip and cook until browned. I topped my Fallcake with some almond buttahh & maple syrup.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Pumpkin Balls

1/4 c. Melted coconut butter

1/3 c. Creamy almond butter

1/4 c. pumpkin puree

3 Tb. coconut sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

3 Tb. cocoa powder

3 Tb. cashew or almond flour

3 Tb.-1/4 c. coconut flour (depends on mixture absorbency)

Directions:  Mix together all wet ingredients, add dry and stir until all combined.  You should be able to handle the mixture, if not you may need to add a bit more cashew/almond flour.  If too dry, add a splash of milk.  Form into Tablespoon sized balls and refrigerate.  
Great for snacking :)

I think you should try these instead of chugging those Pumpkin Spice Lattes...just saying ;) ENJOY!
