So, I’m going to do my best to refrain from posting a million pumpkin spice recipes between now and Thanksgiving, but realistically, there will be a few more. I got this adorable pumpkin candy mold today and decided my first task would be to make something pumpkin flavored. Because it’s back to being hot out, I didn’t really feel like baking and decided that some low carb vegan pumpkin spice fat bombs were in order!
These are really basic, and basically just require you to be able to blend things, and then scoop them into molds. Amazing! I like using hemp seed because it sneaks some omega-3 fatty acids into the mix, as well as some fiber and protein. It also provides a little more texture than just the coconut oil alone, and I don’t love feeling like I’m just eating oil.
The pumpkin in these provides some fiber and a solid amount of beta carotene. In fact, just one fat bomb has almost 50% of the RDA for vitamin A. Not bad for something that basically tastes like candy. These bad boys are both soy free and nut free, as well as vegan and free of added sugar. I hope you enjoy these, and if you try them in your coffee, let me know!
Notes on Making Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs
- You can very easily use these to flavor coffee, and it’s amazing. Basically, blend 1 cube with 8 ounces of hot coffee, and enjoy.
- These turn out best if the coconut oil is melty and the pumpkin is at room temperature. At first I tried this with pumpkin that had been sitting in the fridge, and it really did not go well. The oil seized up and it was sort of a disaster.
- You don’t need to use pumpkin spice, and can easily go with just cinnamon instead.
These low carb vegan pumpkin spice fat bombs are loaded with MCTs, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, protein and fiber.
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spices
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- liquid stevia to taste
- Blend together. I recommend starting with the coconut and pumpkin, adding in the hemp and blending until smooth and then the flavoring. Portion into a silicon mold, freeze and enjoy!
