3 teaspoons baking powder, gluten-free if desired.
1 tablespoon granulated stevia.
2 tablespoons chia seeds.
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
1 handful basil leaves, chopped.
1 cup pumpkin puree.
1/2 cup coconut milk (or milk of your choice).
2 eggs.
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted.
handful pepitas.



1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 350ºF and line each cup of a 12-cup muffin tray with a 10 cm square of baking paper (or use cupcake papers).

2. Combine flour, meal, baking powder, chia seeds, basil, cinnamon and stevia if using in a large bowl.

3. In a separate bowl combine pumpkin, milk, eggs and oil.

4. Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients and combine well.
