These fritters are delicious for breakfast or dessert and are rather easy to make. Pumpkin is a nutrient-dense food that is packed with vitamin A. We’ve incorporated Coconut Flour which is a prebiotic and great for your gut health. Our low GI* Coconut Sugar and Coconut Nectar are used in this recipe instead of cane sugar. The mixed spice and cinnamon are a wonderful complement to the pumpkin flavour. Bon Appétit! This recipe makes 10 small fritters.
*Eating food that is high in cane sugar can spike your insulin levels which prompts cells to store fat. When we eat low GI foods these levels are more stable.
