Remember, always choose pumpkins with an intense orange color – they are the most valuable. These muffins also contain vitamin A, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and magnesium. If you are following a particularly low-calorie diet, the good news for you is they are only 28 calories per 100g.

Ingredients (recipe for 6 pieces)

1 3/4 Cup Raw pumpkin (Hokkaido variety works best)
3 eggs
1/3 Cup Coconut flakes
1/3 Cup Coconut flour
1 1/4 Tablespoon Cocoa
1oz Chopped Dark Chocolate
Half Teaspoon of spices (mincemeat)
Flat teaspoon of cinnamon
Half teaspoon of baking powder

Preparation:

1. Peel the pumpkin, cut into small cubes, and mash in a blender.

2. Add the eggs and keep mixing until smooth

3. Put the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined.

4. Toss in the coconut flakes and pour into muffin molds. Be sure to sprinkle some on top for decoration.
