Pumpkins are full of anti-oxidants, helps to fight cancer, improves skin texture, reduces blood glucose levels, rich in Vitamin A which helps to keep our eyes healthy, and are loaded with fiber, keeping us feeling full longer and facilitating in weight loss.
I love this recipe because it also includes the 6 tastes that Ayurveda claims should be in every meal for optimal digestion and for balancing our dosha (constitution).
Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious and moist treat:
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/2 cup raw almond butter
- 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs (organic, free range)
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (can be bought ready made at most grocery stores)
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350F and grease and 8″x8″ baking dish generously with coconut oil.
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl, mix well until smooth. Pour the mixture into the greased pan, and bake at 350F for about 30-40 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the center is firm (insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean – it’s done).
Allow to cool for approximately 20-30 minutes and cut into squares. Enjoy with your favorite herbal tea.
