Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c. quick oats
  • 3/4 c. buckwheat flour ground from raw buckwheat groats (see Notes)
  • 1 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • scant 1/2 t. ginger, dried
  • 1/4 t. cloves
  • 1/4 t. sea salt
  • 3/4 t. baking soda
  • 3/4 c. pumpkin puree
  • 2 T. oil I like to use grapeseed, but coconut or olive will work!
  • 2 T. honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 c. milk I use my homemade coconut milk, link below
  • a dash of stevia if desired for extra sweetness
  • 1/4-1/3 c. chopped unsweetened or dark chocolate or chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix dry ingredients (oats, flour, spices, salt, baking soda) in a small bowl.
  • Mix wet ingredients (pumpkin, oil, honey, milk) in a medium bowl.
  • Pour dry mix into the wet ingredients, along with about half of the chocolate, and mix until well combined.
  • Spread the batter (it will be thick!) into a well-oiled 8 x 8 baking dish.
  • Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes until a knife comes out clean.
  • Cool, cut, and serve!
