  • 1 cup pecans
  • ¾ cup cashews
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates (about 10 – 11)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ⅛ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 4 cups pumpkin puree (either two 15 oz cans or flesh from 2 fresh sugar pie pumpkins)
  • 1 cup (about 10-11) organic Medjool dates (pitted)
  • ½  cup organic cold-pressed coconut oil
  • ¼  cup organic maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt


    Prepare crust:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the crust to a food processor. Pulse a few times then let run until it has a crumbly texture that sticks together when pressed between fingers.
  2. Divide mixture evenly between 12 paper cupcake liners (about 2 TBSP in each) and press down firmly to form a crust base.
  3. Set aside until filling is ready.
    Prepare pumpkin pie filling:

  1. To make fresh pumpkin puree, wash pumpkins, place on a baking sheet and bake in a 350F preheated oven for about 50 minutes or until you can easily insert a fork through skin. Slice off tops of pumpkins, slice in half, scoop out seeds and innards, and then scoop out the pumpkin flesh (or peel off skin).
  2. Add all ingredients for the pumpkin pie filling to a high-powered blender and blend until creamy and smooth. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you can use your food processor but the texture won’t be as creamy.
  3. Taste filling and see if you’d like more sweetener or spice. Once to your liking pour filling into each cupcake liner and spread out evenly.
  4. Freeze cups for about an hour to firm. Enjoy plain or top with additional cinnamon, whipped coconut cream, pecans and/or cinnamon maple pecans (see Pecan Delicata Squash Recipe).
  5. Store in an air-tight container in freezer. Allow to thaw sufficiently before serving.
