YAY for pumpkin!! These look so good, need to try them! I just cooked up a Pumpkin Chilli yesterday, love it! Hmm…I love Pretzels. Not sure if there is something Paleo o at least healthier than the white-flour-yeast pretzels…..

Pumpkin chili sounds amazing! I’d love to see the recipe you used. Paleo pretzels might be a challenge but I’m up for it! I love pretzels too and usually just buy them gluten free!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. December 18, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I’m definitely not sick of pumpkin yet, but I think a lot of that is because I haven’t been eating all that much of it this year. The spice mix, on the other hand, is something I can’t seem to get enough of. Love how your recipes always have such awesome ingredients :)

Thanks so much Amanda!

These look amazing! I’ve actually been missing my pumpkin. I just realized I haven’t baked with it in WAY too long!

Reply

danielle December 18, 2012 at 9:30 pm

You better get some pumpkin then ;)

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl December 18, 2012 at 4:33 pm

I don’t think that I will ever get sick of the pumpkin craze! I love it :) . In fact, I love it so much that I am fully stocked up on Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter for the next year since it will no longer be available soon. It is just too darn good to not have on hand! ;)

danielle December 18, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Hahaha that is too funny. At least you’re prepared ;)

kim@hungryhealthygirl December 18, 2012 at 5:16 pm

I actually can eat pumpkin all year around and not be sick of it. I love baking with it too because it adds moisture without adding lots of calories.

Reply

danielle December 18, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Me too! I use it in baking all the time!

i still go through at least one can of pumpkin a week so i would say….no i am not tired of it yet haha These look so good! I can’t say I’ve ever seen unsweetened/natural almond butter before…..maybe i could try making my own!

Reply

danielle December 18, 2012 at 9:32 pm

You can definitely make your own! Just blend the almonds in the food processor and you get almond butter!

Peggy December 18, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I could never be sick of the pumpkin craze! These sound delicious =)

I will never be sick of pumpkin!! although, I’m not too fond of my orange color.. :/ hahaha.

Hahaha I’d be okay with a bit of an orange tan ;)

Heather December 19, 2012 at 4:18 am

yum! these look great. i’ve been wanting to make some muffins using coconut flour, and definitely prefer muffins of the mini variety! just so cute.

Reply

danielle December 19, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Awesome! I hope you enjoy them Heather!

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table December 19, 2012 at 4:44 am

All you have to say is pumpkin and cinnamon and I am THERE! These look amazing. :)

Reply

danielle December 19, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Thanks so much Laura! I feel the same about cinnamon! Add it to anything and I’ll love it!

Melissa @ Fit 'N' Well Mommy December 19, 2012 at 6:41 am

Ooh, these look SO good! I haven’t tried baking with coconut and almond flours together, but after seeing your recipe, I’ll have to give it a try! I don’t think I can ever get sick of pumpkin; I love to eat it year round!

Reply

danielle December 19, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Thanks Melissa! I like to combine the flours because they seem to cook better when they’re mixed. I find coconut flour pretty dry on it’s own!

Arlene @ Adventures in Weight Loss December 20, 2012 at 8:51 am

I second (or 43rd) the fact that you can never have too many pumpkin recipes. ;)

I made these Wednesday morning (with paper liners in my muffin tins), and they turned out great.

danielle December 20, 2012 at 2:45 pm

hahaha love the paper liners! So glad you liked them :)
