INGREDIENTS

For the Cupcake Crust

  • 1 1/4 cups of gluten-free organic rolled oats (or oat flour)
  • 2 tablespoons Simple Protein : Pumpkin Seed Natural
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup soaked medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (can be substituted with any sticky sweetener like agave)

For the Filling

  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (can be substituted with any sticky sweetener like agave)

For the Toppings

  • raw pumpkin seeds
  • cacao nibs
  • vegan chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS
  1. Prepare the dates by soaking them in hot water for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Make oat flour by blending the oats in a food processor (or just use oat flour :P), and then add the Simple Protein : Pumpkin Seed Natural and pumpkin spice, pulsing until well combined.
  3. Add the soaked dates and maple syrup and blend until the mixture becomes sticky and well combined.
  4. Line a cupcake pan with plastic wrap, and scoop about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the cupcake molds (press down, leaving a small indent in the middle for the cupcake filling).
  5. Place in freezer for about 15 minutes to let firm, and then make the filling by blending the pumpkin, coconut cream and maple syrup in a small bowl.
  6. After the 15 minutes, add the filling to the crusts, and then add the toppings.
  7. Enjoy!
