Dr Jockers Comments:
This is an awesome holiday recipe snack. Your kids (and spouse) will go crazy for these. Pumpkin is higher in carbs than I typically recommend, so this isn’t a keto recipe but it is free of grains and unnecessary sugar. You can try out the new Lakanto maple syrup or Honest Brand maple syrup which are both sugar free, or use an organic maple syrup that rich in trace minerals and is one of our approved natural sweeteners.
Cinnamon is important for flavoring but even more important for its great ability to improve blood sugar signaling patterns. This helps the body buffer the sugar from the pumpkin and syrup. I LOVE the combination of coconut and cacao for great mental drive! Enjoy this sweet treat!
The combination of raw cacao and coconut is extraordinary for the brain. The coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that are easily metabolized into ketones that feed the brain. The cacao is rich in PEA’s which boost dopamine and theobromine which improves circulation into the brain.
Coconut butter is awesome. It is like a dessert in itself to me. The combination of coconut fats and the coconut flour that make up the butter just tastes incredible!
