Pumpkin Poufflé

When the leaves start to change and Halloween approaches, pumpkin season arrives in full force and with it brings an onslaught of pumpkin recipes. I didn’t really enjoy eating pumpkin until a few years ago, but once I became a convert the love was real. Which you may have guessed, between the Pumpkin Muffins, Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pumpkin Apple Spice Bread, and Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cake that have all been shared on this blog in the past month. Well, now it’s time for the dessert that’s fit to serve at your Thanksgiving table. This Pumpkin Poufflé was actually my second post ever, and it’s been updated and remastered (in 3D, or 4D, or whatever they call it these days) for anyone in need of a grain free pumpkin pie for the holiday season.

This may not be a Cronut, but it’s a hybrid all its own, a cross between a classic pumpkin pie and a pumpkin soufflé. Rich, creamy, and custardy, every slice explodes with pumpkin goodness, and the totally optional dark chocolate kiss on top just makes it even more festive.

The ingredient list is short and sweet, including pure pumpkin, Greek yogurt (which can be subbed for a dairy free alternative), maple syrup, flaxseed meal, eggs, and olive oil. It makes for a wholesome treat, not just gluten free but totally grain free and refined sugar free. For an extra chocolatey pumpkin kick, toss 1/4 cup pure unsweetened cocoa powder into the mix.

Be sure to follow the instructions and let this treat cool off before slicing and serving. Otherwise you’ll end up with a dish of pumpkin pudding (which is also delicious, but nothing is better on Thanksgiving than a slice of pie!)
