Are you one of the people that feel like pumpkin desserts are not just for fall?

Meeee toooo!

It’s not that I love all things fall (although I do like the season), but I sure do love a good pumpkin dessert once in a while. If you feel the same, I think you’ll find this recipe is just what you’ve been craving!

Grain-Free And Gluten-Free Pumpkin Dessert

When you have a diet with restrictions, for any reason, it can sometimes be a little more difficult to find or modify recipes.

Have no fear! If you are following a grain-free, gluten-free, or even dairy-free diet and in need of a pumpkin dessert, this recipe is just for you!

As is, the recipe contains dairy, but you could use coconut oil instead of butter and the recipe will work just fine. For the cream cheese frosting, you could use a dairy-free substitute like the ones from Daiya or Kite Hill.

  • 1/4 cup of raw honey
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin spice ( or you can use 1/2 cinnamon and 1/2 nutmeg)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

Frosting

  • 6 oz cream cheese (or substitute), softened
  • 2 Tbsp. butter (or substitute), softened
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup raw honey

  2. Mix eggs, butter, honey, and vanilla together
  3. Add pumpkin and mix well
  4. Add baking powder, pumpkin spice, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Mix in coconut flour, stirring well. Make sure there are no clumps of flour.
  6. Pour into a cake pan lined with parchment paper
  7. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until done

  10. Frost and cut into bars. You can also add any topping of choice. One of our favorites is allergy-friendly chocolate chips!
