These brownies are rich, fudgy, and oh-so-perfectly pumpkin spiced. Made with coconut flour and real cacao powder, they are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and Paleo friendly! Perfect with a glass of hemp or almond milk.



  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or granulated monk fruit


  • 2/3 cup cacao powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup 100% dark chocolate, shaved (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together cacao powder, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Use a sieve to sift the coconut flour in, to get rid of clumps. Stir in the coconut flour and shaved chocolate (if using) and set this bowl aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine melted coconut oil with tahini and pumpkin. Whisk together well, then add vanilla and eggs and mix again until fully combined.
  4. Add the coconut sugar to this bowl and stir well.
  5. Slowly dump the dry ingredients into the wet and mix well. Scrape this into your prepared baking dish, using the back of a spoon to spread it evenly over the pan and smooth out the top.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes for fudgy brownies, or longer if you like a crispier edger and more crumbly brownie.
