Having spent time with her, I know for a fact that everything she posts is 100% accurate, which ties in perfectly with today’s recipe- These pumpkin ‘cake pops’. After a morning of baking these cookies and these cake pops, I went to meet her and brought her half of both- I, myself, had eaten the other that morning as a combination of breakfast and lunch. Let’s just say by the time we left her workplace to grab dinner, the box was near empty.

“How do these taste?”

“They taste So good- Like those things, cake things!”

“Cake pops?”

“Yes! Cake pops!”

“So you sure I can post them?”

“YES!”

Friends, Alexis gave me her seal of approval and she has an epic palette. If these don’t turn out delicious, you can blame her and her sabotaging ways.

Just kidding.

These healthy three ingredient ‘cake pops’ are soft and cake like and literally take 10 minutes to whip up in your oven! Ironically, they are the EXACT same ingredients as the three ingredient pumpkin ‘fudge’ but baked lightly to give it the delicious ‘cake’ like texture coconut flour naturally possesses. Naturally paleo, vegan and gluten free, these are also refined sugar-free and very low in fat.While coconut flour with a dash of coconut palm sugar is generally pleasantly sweet, go ahead and add some optional chocolate chips to the batter to take it up a notch- I won’t disapprove. 

Depending on the texture you prefer, simply adjust the oven cooking time- 

Soft + VERY cake-like- Less time. 

Firm + Crumbly like a loaded cookie- More time.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a large cookie sheet or baking tray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, pumpkin puree, granulated sweetener and cinnamon mix well. If using chocolate chips, mix those in until fully incorporated.
  • Using your hands, shape into small balls and place on the greased cookie sheet. Depending on the texture you want, bake for around 10 minutes (for a softer cake texture) or up to 15 minutes (very dense and crumbly). Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before eating.

Notes

* Depending on the brand of coconut flour you use, you may need more pumpkin puree. Also, depending on the amount of chocolate chips you add, you may need more pumpkin- Adjust accordingly (batter should be firm yet still relatively soft.
** If you use extra, you'll need to add more pumpkin.
Cake pops can be stored at room temperature in a covered container for up to a week or frozen.

    1. You could stack these and make pumpkin snow people if you strategically place the chocolate chips. 🙂 Or jack-o-lantern snow people for Halloween. 🙂 They look great, Arman. I really need to get some coconut flour so I can try these.

    2. I think when you’re in the business of talking about what you eat on a regular basis, you’re probably going to get judged regularly. All you can do is just ignore it, really – you know what you need and what you like to eat.

      Not jumping on the pumpkin bandwagon yet, buuuut I’m sure it’s coming.

    3. Food judgement is not cool. We are all different, with different appetites and needs.
      These cake pops, however look very cool.

    4. Can’t wait to try these – pinning for later! I’m originally from Ohio (NE part of the state) – isn’t German Village fun? Speaking of Ohio – these gems of yours look fabulous and happen to be the team colors of the Browns (football) and would be a fun treat to serve at a get together 😉

    5. I’ve been reading your blog for about 6 months now (love it!) and after today’s post, I understand why. I enjoy it so much: A) You’re friends with a RD (I’m a RD, LDN) and B) I love, love love pumpkin!!! Seriously, your recipes are delicious and simple. I have suggested your blog to quite a few of my patients and have even food demo’d one for an example of a healthy recipe. I appreciate that you understand that RDs eat real food (we may just practice balance a bit more that the average person). You should plan on going to FNCE with Alexis (if she’s going) and meet a ton of RDs!! Keep up the great blogging; I appreciate it!

    6. It’s weird, or not, I don’t ever get food judgment in my WIAW posts or any other really. Or maybe I do and it just goes right over my head. I suspect the former though. Maybe it’s a sign you guys have made IT, whatever that really is.

    7. Definitely tonnes of judgment out there. And it’s funny because people are actually super bad at accurately gauging how much someone eats. I remember a post you did a while back about how different the same meal can look from different angles or on different plates. Everybody just needs to mind their own business…
