How to make low-fat pumpkin cakes?


Low-fat pumpkin recipes

Having some baked pumpkin leftovers from previous recipes, I was thinking of how to make good use of them for some other bite.

As a fan of sweets, which will take its toll one day, of course, I had to mix pumpkin into something sweet…And healthy as I like to comfort myself…Low-fat pumpkin cakes.

20 minutes PREPARATION
5 minutes COOKING
25 balls, each 10 gr PORTIONS


  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 of a powdered sugar cup or as a substitution of two spoons of honey
  • 1 coconut flour cup
  • 1 coconut oil spoon
  • 2 cinnamon teaspoons
  • 1/2 of a spoon of ground ginger
  • 1/2 of a teaspoon of ground muscat walnut
  • 1/2 of a teaspoon of ground carnation
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla flavour
  • Optional: 1,5 cup of dark chocolate


  1. Mix pumpkin puree, powdered sugar (or honey), coconut flour, coconut oil, all spices and vanilla in one larger bowl.
  2. Mix all the ingredients and make a smooth mixture ready to shape into balls.
  3. Melt chocolate on steam (water bath) and leave aside to cool down while you are shaping the mixture into balls.
  4. Moisten your hands a bit while shaping the mixture so that the balls don't get sticky.
  5. Once you've shaped the balls put them in the bowl with chocolate and roll them 1-2 times so that the chocolate covers the entire ball.
  6. Then take the balls out and put them on the grate so that the excess chocolate pours off.
  7. Once the chocolate tightens, put the balls into paper cases and serve.
  8. Optional: if you don't want chocolate balls, then, instead of rolling them into chocolate, you can roll them into almonds, peanuts, coconut flour.
  9. And you can also decorate them...several balls into each decorating option and then you have a variety of cakes at the same time 🙂

Pumpkin cake recipe

I have already told you they are quick and easy to make, and now I am going to show you.

First I need pumpkin puree. I made it by cleaning the pumpkin from seeds and peel, then I cut it and put it in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes at 150°C. At the end of baking it should be soft and able to mash with a fork.

After that, I took it out and mashed it with a fork, but you can put it in a blender to get a finer texture.

And then I took one larger bowl and put all the ingredients in it: pumpkin puree, powdered sugar or honey as you like it, coconut flour, vanilla flavour, cinnamon, muscat walnut, ginger, carnation. 

I mixed it all well and got a smooth mixture easy to shape.

Before starting to shape the balls, I melted dark chocolate on steam, and left it to cool down a bit, while I was making balls.

I put some water on my hands, so that the mixture doesn’t get sticky and I can shape the balls more easily.

I took approximately 10 gr of mixture in order to get about 26 balls in the end.

When I shaped all the balls, I dipped them into the chocolate. Then put on a grate so that the excess chocolate pours off, and then tightens altogether.

Then I put them in paper cases and ate them 🙂

Putting them in paper cases was just for a trick to get some more time…And not eat everything in the first minute 🙂

And you can also make them more interesting by decorating with coconut flour 🙂
