Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Pumpkin Pie Truffles. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

To keep this recipe nut free, I used granola butter. However, you can also use a seed butter like sunflower seed butter or any other nut butter such as almond or cashew butter.

Use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.

Pure Maple syrup is a great sweetener since it’s unrefined. However, you can also use honey or agave.

Coconut flour is a great grain free flour option and adds a sweet, yet subtle flavor. Feel free to use oat flour or almond flour in replace, however, it’s not a 1:1 swap for coconut flour so you will need more than what is written for coconut flour.

These truffles are loaded with pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon for added pumpkin flavoring.

You can use dark or white chocolate for the coating. If you are vegan make sure you use a dairy free and vegan chocolate, otherwise, any kind will work.

Do you think I could use almond flour instead of coconut flour for these?

Hi there! Almond flour will work as well, but it’s not a 1:1 swap. Coconut flour is extremely absorptive, so if opting for almond flour you will need to use double, if not triple the amount. I’d recommend doubling and then adding in a few more tbsp until you reach the right consistency!
