You know you are a real foodie when you can’t decide if a recipe you just invented should be breakfast or dessert. That’s right! The coconut flour, pumpkin, and eggs in this recipe make it a filling breakfast, but the pumpkin pie seasoning, honey and vanilla give it a dessert-like quality that will have your family begging for more.

Breakfast? Dessert? It’s a good conundrum to have!

This is a sister recipe to the most popular recipe on my blog – Baked Apple Bread{less} Pudding.  Not only is it gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free, but it fills your house with the smell of pumpkin pie as it bakes.  I do have to give you a small warning, however. Do not make this recipe if you want to have leftovers. It just won’t happen. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😉

A quick note about this recipe: Remember, it’s a baked pudding so it is supposed to be very moist and not dry like most baked goods.

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whip together eggs, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla.  (Hint – measure the oil first, then the honey in the same measuring cup.  It will slide right out without a mess.)

Step 2: In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.

  1. OK so I made this for the first time today but left out the eggs (allergies) and it’s not “hard” at all. It’s still very mushy. Any experience as to what I should do?


    • Hi Robyn,
      It’s going to have a moist ‘pudding-like’ consistency with the eggs, so I imagine without the egg to bind it the result would be almost soupy. I don’t have much experience with egg-free cooking but I’m wondering if you could use ground flax seed or gelatin?


      • im thinking of using oat flour .. cant get coconut right now. date paste.. and using a flax egg. it binds most things.

  4. Made this tonight. Delicious! Exactly the kind of food I was looking for on a cold night. Thanks!


  5. I made this recipe for my son whose diet is dairy free. He and I both loved it. I am so thankful for a delicious alternative to the pumpkin desserts the rest of the family is eating. I made it using almond flour because I had it on hand.

  8. This has become our family staple! We grow our own pumpkins, and this is the perfect way to use them. I add a tad more honey and call it pie 🙂
