This Paleo-inspired recipe came from a CrossFit gym that I visited in South Carolina. I stopped by for a few workouts while I was on vacation and they had a few recipes pinned to their bulletin board. This one caught my eye and I had to get a copy. I modified it slightly, but it didn’t need much tweaking at all.

I love this dense, flavorful cake and it satisfies my sweet tooth without much guilt. I added a maple butter glaze to the original recipe to give it a bit more flavor and moisture. My husband enjoys eating this for breakfast. It’s also great with a small amount of whipped topping or a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt!

1/2 cup coconut flour
6 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
*optional: 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
