Watch out, pumpkin pie and make room for this GF/DF and Grain Free Pumpkin Souffle! This dessert is delicious even without a caloric crust. Of course this makes a fantastic brunch or breakfast as well, as it is light and flavorful and a great source of high quality protein. Additionally, feel free to change this recipe up by eliminating the cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and maple syrup and replacing them with savory spices like sage, black pepper, and a bit more sea salt to make this a savory side dish.


Recipe: Yields 4 servings

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 4  whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground clove
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whisk the canned pumpkin, eggs, coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together until well combined.
  3. Sift the coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove into the wet ingredients and continue to whisk until well combined.
  4. Pour into oven safe ramekins (Either 4 separate 1 cup portions or larger size souffle dish to be shared.)
  5. Bake in the center of the oven for 25-35 minutes or until the entire souffle puffs up and the center no longer appears wet.

  4. This sounds delicious for Fall! I love the idea of making it a savoury dish by eliminating the cinnamon and "pumpkin" spices and adding pepper, sea salt, and sage, making it a totally different dish. Pinned!
