Pumpkin Paleo Cake

Doesn't take long for this crew to gobble it up!

Doesn’t take long for this crew to gobble it up!

I often make “after you eat all your meal” treats.  It’s not a dessert really – because I’m trying to make things that have quality nutrition.  I often save the left overs for breakfast…

Since we can’t call breakfast – dessert….

I call it… A treat?

My kids will even ask me … “So… is this a DESSERT? or a treat?” 

It’s a sneaky way for me to get more healthy fats into them, and make sure they’re getting enough calories too.

One of my favorites (and theirs) is pumpkin paleo bread, or CAKE…  let’s call a spade, and spade. 🙂  I add in pecans (and chocolate chips) to whatever I can – so they can get some added fats, and feel like it truly IS a treat.

PUMPKIN PALEO BREAD:

– 1 can of Organic Pumpkin

– 2 T arrowroot powder

– 1 t. baking soda

– 1 t. baking powder

– 7 eggs

– 2 tsp. cinnamon

– 3 t. pure vanilla

1/2 cup of organic coconut palm sugar

1/4 cup of organic coconut oil

– 3/4 cup of coconut flour

** 1/2-1 cup of chopped pecans

** 1/2 cup of enjoy life chocolate chips

Pour into a 9×13 glass dish, grease with coconut oil .  Bake at 325 degrees for 28-32 minutes.

“This God—His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.”

Psalm 18:30

  1. Sounds wonderful & best –it has all ingredients I have on hand– so many recipes have so many ingredients that I don’t have or use– that I then know– well I won’t ever try that one!!! 🙂

  2. That’s what I love about most paleo recipes! I feel like there are only a few basic ingredients – as long as you have those – you’re set! 🙂

  3. Sara, my family made this cake today. The kids enjoyed making it and waited by the oven, with the light on, watching it bake. They inhaled it in a few bites, and asked for seconds. Success!
