For this recipe, I highly recommend to use silicone muffin cups - they don't stick, are reusable and can be lined directly on a baking sheet.


1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
2. Add all the ingredients (pumpkin, almond butter, cocoa powder, maple syrup, chopped walnuts, egg, vanilla and soda) to a large bowl and whisk together.

3. Divide the mixture between 10 silicone muffin cups, filling each approximately 1/2 - 2/3 full. Arrange them on a baking sheet.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 17-19 minutes.
