Pumpkin Skillet [V + GF]
Prep time: 10 minutes
Prep time: 40 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
3 Tbsp milled flax
6 Tbsp water
1/2 pumpkin puree
1/4 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp organic apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup oat flour (grind 3/4 cup gluten-free oats in a spice grinder)
1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate morsels
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/4 cup broken up pecans
- In a small dish combine milled flax and water then place in the fridge to set for a minimum of 10 minutes.
- In the meantime preheat oven to 350°F and begin adding the remaining wet ingredients (excluding vinegar) into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir to combine with a rubber spatula.
- Next stir in the spices, baking soda and apple cider vinegar. Then fold in the oat flour.
- At this time the flax egg should be ready to be mixed in. Be sure to use your rubber spatula to scrape all remnants from the dish.
- Stir in your chocolate, raisins and pecans (saving a few to sprinkle on top) and transfer to your skillet. Depending on how you maintain your cast iron, you may want to coat it with a light layer of butter or oil first. Use your rubber spatula to spread the batter evenly across the skillet.
- Sprinkle your remaining mix ins on top of your skillet and bake for 40 to 45 minutes at 350°F.
- Allow skillet to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Use a pie server to cut into pieces or dig right in with spoons…no judgement here! And don’t forget to try this treat with a scoop of your favorite vegan ice cream. Leftovers should be removed from the pan and stored in the fridge.
