Ingredients Highlights

Cinnamon – reduces A1C, a blood test that reflects your average blood glucose levels and is used to measure risk for diabetes. Cinnamon helps to balance blood glucose and has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.

Coconut contains lauric acid, which is immune-boosting, antiviral, and antibacterial. Coconut is also loaded with minerals like magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and iodine.

Flax seed – has powerful anticancer properties and helps protect against the damaging effects of mammograms, radiotherapy, and diagnostic tests. Tip: Use only freshly ground flaxseed as it goes rancid quickly

Oats are technically gluten-free because they aren’t a type of wheat, barley, or rye grain. However, if you have celiac or a significant gluten sensitivity, look for oats that are certified gluten-free to ensure no cross-contamination.

Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins, and zinc. One ounce of pecans provides 10% of the recommended Daily Value for fiber.

Pumpkin is one of the best sources of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Beta-carotene also helps reduce the risk of heart disease, asthma and many cancers

Pumpkin spice blend – While lots of stores sell pumpkin spice (aka pumpkin pie spice) ready-made, it’s super simple to make your own from spices you may already have on hand. It’s usually made with a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, and allspice.


  1. Hi Chris,

    I would try sunflower seed butter in replacement of the cashews. There's also tahini, but I think that would over-power the flavor of the pumpkin. Taste test as you go and see if you need to adjust any of the other ingredients.

    Happy experimenting!
