Pumpkin Macaroons


Pumpkin Macaroons Recipe

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Servings: 12 macaroons


120g almonds (or almond flour)
20g desiccated coconut
60g pumpkin puree
2 tbsp maple syrup
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 pinch of nutmeg

chocolate sauce:
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp raw cacao
½ tbsp maple syrup


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Mix the almonds into coarse flour by using a blender or food processor.
3. In a bowl mix all the ingredients.
4. Form little macaroons, using your hands and line them on a baking tray. (It works the best if you mould them carefully in the heel of your hand.)
5. Let them bake for about 20 minutes or until they are gold-brown. Take them out the oven and cool.
6. In a pot heat coconut oil, cacao and maple syrup on medium heat and whisk constantly. Use a spoon to drizzle the sauce on the macaroons. Enjoy!

Welcome to my kitchen, my colourful world of nourishing foods. Here I choose to live healthy, eating whole, plant-based foods; a happy mix of vegetables, legumes, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

I am Pauline, a food lover and photographer from Berlin.

My recipes are simple, vegetarian dishes with plant-based and natural ingredients only. Perfect for everyday life. You do not have to be a skilled cook to have a balanced and healthy diet – I am not! An open mind and willingness to try out something new everyday shall be enough. It’s an infinite journey, and I am happy about everyone who decides to come along.
