I am getting back to the basics preparing food the old-fashioned way and discovering new ideas for a healthy life. This veteran vegetarian of nine years now proudly eat lots of butter, takes cod liver oil, drinks kombucha, eats grass-fed meats, and all that is nourishing. This journey has opened me up to a new world filled with the wisdom of generations before me. I want to try these out-of-the-ordinary old-fashioned recipes and make them into my modern nourishment – making real food from real things in real time. I am also getting back to the basics with what we use in our everyday life, making our home as unprocessed as possible.

    I think the frosting makes it a cupcake! Looks yummy though.

    These look yummy! Could I substitute almond flour for coconut flour? I recently purchased some coconut flour so I wanted to use it. I’ve read that coconut flour is more absorbent than almond. What would you recommend? Thanks!

    I don’t think coconut flour can be substituted one for one. They have different properties.

    I made these this weekend and they’re really good. I subbed 1/4 c. maple sugar for the coconut sugar and added 1/3 c. chopped pecans. Left off the frosting. They’re just sweet enough.

    Jeanine, I’ve been making muffins with coconut flour and generally they take no more than 3/4 c. flour and 6 eggs. It’s much more absorbent. It would probably be better to find a basic coconut flour recipe and adapt it to be pumpkin-y. I felt very decadent using as much almond flour as this recipe calls for.
