Chocolate Coated Pumpkin Spice Cups (Vegan+GF)

Dark chocolate and pumpkin spice may not be the most common combo but it works wonderfully in these delicious Autumn treats!
Prep Time 45 minutes
Servings 20 servings


  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup all natural almond butter or another nut butter of choice
  • 1/3 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered almond butter **see note
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup powdered organic sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. For this recipe you will either need a silicon pumpkin mold or cupcake pans and paper liners or silicone cupcake molds. I prefer silicone molds. This recipe makes about 20 pumpkin cups. (*see note)
  2. Combine almond butter, pumpkin, vanilla, pumpkin spice, and salt and mix until smooth. Add in the powdered almond butter and powdered sugar, and gently fold in until it all starts to form a dough-like mixture. Place the mixture into the fridge to chill while you melt the chocolate.
  3. Melt chocolate and coconut oil slowly in a double boiler over low heat. Now use a spoon or pastry brush to coat the sides and bottoms of each pumpkin, cup liner, or paper, being sure to fill in any holes. Repeat with all.
  4. Place the molds in the freezer and chill for at least 5 minutes. Once the chocolate has hardened, fill each slot full with the pumpkin mixture and press down to flatten with a spatula and smooth the top. After you've filled each cup, use the remaining chocolate to coat the tops of each cup to seal them in chocolate. Allow them to harden (you can place them in the freezer to make this fast. I recommend waiting until they are very solid and cold before trying to take them out of the molds or they'll smash), then peel off the molds or paper liners and enjoy.

  5. Store in an airtight container. (P.S. these are so good chilled!)

Recipe Notes

*Here is the Pumpkin mold I used or you can purchase silicone cupcake liners online or you can also buy cupcake pans and paper cupcake liners.


**If you don't have powdered almond butter you can use powdered peanut butter if you don't mind a bit of peanut butter flavor.
