Pumpkin Spice Meltaways

Pumpkin Spice Meltaways

Tis the season for pumpkin spice everything. I’ve been making spiced pumpkin lattes and pumpkin spice muffins for breakfast occasionally, but I wanted a really filling no-bake treat that I could whip up for the kids.

I’ve made coconut meltaways before with flavors like citrus, chocolate, and strawberry (I need to post those recipes too!) and I wondered if I could make a Fall inspired pumpkin spice variation.

After a few tries, I created a recipe that I love and that the children love too. It is simple to make and doesn’t require turning on the oven.

I made these in a silicon gingerbread man mold, but they could be made in any type of silicon mold or even in a glass container and then sliced into cubes.

As with any recipe, they can be adjusted to your tastes. Add a little more honey or maple syrup for a sweeter meltaway, or leave it out entirely for a sugar free option.

For this recipe, I used equal parts coconut oil and coconut butter/cream. You could also use butter in place of the coconut oil or desired or use a mix of both. If I don’t make it myself (here’s the recipe), I buy coconut cream concentrate (coconut butter) from Tropical Traditions or this one from Amazon.

BONUS: Drop one of these into a blender with a cup of coffee or tea for an instant pumpkin spice latte!

Delicious pumpkin spice treats made with nutrient rich coconut oil and coconut cream with Fall inspired spices. These treats are easy to make and filling (and they can be made sugar free!)
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24+
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • ¾ cup coconut butter/cream (here's a recipe to make your own)
  • 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (recipe here) OR ½ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp nutmeg and a dash of cloves (NOTE: This will make a slightly spicy meltaway. I suggest adding slowly and tasting as you go to get the flavor you prefer)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of raw honey or maple syrup (or more to taste)
Instructions
  1. Melt the coconut oil on low heat.
  2. Place melted coconut oil and coconut cream/butter in a blender.
  3. Add spices and sweetener if using and blend until smooth. If you don't have a blender, you can melt all ingredients in a small saucepan to incorporate instead.
  4. Carefully spoon into silicon molds or a glass container. Put in the freezer for about an hour to set and pop out of molds.
  5. I store these in the fridge for up to two weeks (they would probably last longer since all ingredients are shelf stable, but I haven't personally tested them).

  1. That mold is so cute! I love this idea to get more coconut oil in my kids diet. I make coconut oil fudge but then I eat it all myself and don’t share with the kids, lol. Just kidding (sort of).
    I also like the idea of this melt away in some of my morning herbal tea. I’ll have to give that a try…

    • Chanelle, please post your coconut oil fudge recipe so the rest of us can be blessed by it!

      • Yes please share it!

  2. these look delicious. a family member is allergic to coconut and tree nuts. what oil can i substitute and still keep it healthy? ish…

    • Grass fed ghee? Butter?

  3. I love this! I will be making it this weekend. Thank you so much for another great post!

  4. I just wanted to say that I NEVER thought I would ever like your coffee recipe. Ever. Until I tried it. I add cocoa and enjoy it twice a day now. Thank you!

    • Hi! I saw Cindy mentioned a coffee recipe with cocoa?? Can you Cindy, or someone ,please share again? I missed it! Thank you, in advance!!

  5. I just had to tell you-I’ve been doing this Paleo thing for a month now. When I started it I thought what have I got to lose..every joint hurts, I can barely move much less exercise, I’d gained so much weight and every time I tried to diet I was crushed by overwhelming cravings. My mental health was in the dumps; I was fighting the aftermath of a horrid divorce and couldn’t pull myself together. It seemed that all I could do each day was put one foot in front of the other; if I managed to cook something for myself that was an exhausting day. I’d gone to my doctor with no avail; I went back and she tried some tests but just couldn’t find anything. So on a chance comment from a friend I started this paleo lifestyle. A little at a time but within a week I was immersed in it. I started to see improvements within a week and after a month I have dropped 15 lbs, joint pain is gone, mood better, no more blood sugar spikes. Went back to my doctor and she was astounded, asked me what I had done. After I told her she of course was concerned about all the fat and meat; she wanted labs. Sp I gave them some blood and got my results today. My labs have improved so much, my LDL has gone down -a lot- my HDL has gone up. All my others have significantly improved and she is baffled. I love this site, it is the first I came to and continue to come to for support, info and great recipes. Thank you so much for giving me my life back. Oh yeah, I forgot…my mom (90 yrs old) saw my results and now she is doing it too.

    • Thank you for posting your comment, KathyR; I needed to hear that. Love this site. WellnessMama you are a blessing! Plan to start this way of eating too. Have already used many recipes from WM but not seriously followed through. Thanks to you both for this encouragement!

      • Elina, it really does work – but you have to be honest (and diligent) about what you are eating. But really the cravings that I used to have are almost all gone. Once in a great while I crave a sweet so I eat a fruit or dried date and I am completely satisfied. No one believes me until they see it..lol!
        My mom used to have a terrible addiction to ice cream, she could go through gallons in a few days. She has stopped that and her diet coke addiction. I do have to say that diet coke is still my fave even though I don;t drink it. Hey, it’s not magic we have to do some work! =D
        Give it a try and let us know how you are doing!

    • Congratulations! I too have been on Paleo for almost 3 years. I saw all the improvements you have seen in a short amount of time. I have been losing hair for over a year (tried many things and dermatologist says its “female patterned baldness” and just recently decided I might should add some “good grain” to my diet. I have a sensitivity to wheat, so just added steel cut oats, quinoa, granola.

      Bad choice. Weight gain for the first time in three years, joint pain has returned. Hair loss is not as bad, but I don’t think it has been a contributing factor. Stress triggers have been eliminated and it has helped tremendously!! So it looks like the pantry will be back to strict Paleo again. I need no more proof than what I have experienced….stay with your lifestyle for continued health!

  6. This sounds so delicious!!!

  7. You are so creative, I love this idea! I’m making some this weekend. Thanks!!

  8. I’d love to have you post your other recipes, especially the citrus and chocolate.

  9. This is just the best email to wake up too! I’m pumpkin addicted and can not wait to make these (breakfast is ok, right? ????).

    You ROCK! Thank you!

    Ps just FYI-the ‘post comment’ button is so close to the star rating that it won’t allow me to hit 5 stars, only 4. I’d give this 5 stars if I could!

  10. Great idea – I am always trying to find news ways of getting more coconut oil/ fat into me! I am currently on AIP so these would be perfect !

  11. Could you add gelatin to these?

  12. What can we use if coconut oil doesn’t work for us. I have allergies to it, so when you use coconut oil, butter or creams for lotions, I can not do them. What can I use. Please help.

  13. How do these help with sugar cravings? I really need something to help the entire family.

    Oh, and I’m agreeing with everyone else about you posting the other recipes. 🙂

    Thanks!

  14. Love coconut oil, and all the different was to use it. Thanks

  15. Do these have an overwhelming coconut oil taste? So far everything ive tried with coconut oil just makes me gag. This is such a cute and simple recipe..id love to give it a try

    • I think they have a light pleasant coconut taste, but you may find it too strong for you.

  16. I love this recipe and can’t wait to try it. i notice that a lot of your recipes use silicon molds and if they are truly considered safe-especially to freeze food in? Thank you so much

  17. About the coconut taste-i kept taste-testing until I got it right for me.
    Had to add like 3 teaspoons (or maybe 4 or 5, I lost count) of pumpkin pie spice to cover the coconut flavor from my coconut cream. I used half expeller pressed coconut oil/half butter for the oil part also, thanks for that suggestion. That cream however…really overpowered the pumpkin. So ladies if you like your pumpkin flavor like myself-add a ton of spice (and test as you go). I can’t wait to actually eat one! Thank you again for such a great sweet recipe!

  18. Made these today. They are yummy — I wish I had gone a little more heavy handed on the spices though. Next time …

    Thanks for the recipe.

  19. I made these today and upped the flavor by adding essential oils 3 drops cinnamon, 1 drop of cloves, 2 drops of nutmeg and a teaspoon of vanilla…. amazing…. Thank you for all you do Katie!!! I just bought your cookbook and love it even though I have already printed out most of your recipes already. Keep up the amazing work/passion/mission !!! You are appreciated and are making such a difference for so many families. Thank you again….Love and Light to you and yours.

  20. Hi! Made these little cuties today but after I popped them out of the mold, they softened up. Tasty and creamy but has to be eaten with a spoon. What did I do wrong?

    Thanks for the help!

    • Sounds like the ambient temp in your house is a bit warm… I store them in the fridge or freezer if it’s hot.

      • Hmmm…they are mushy even in the fridge. : ( I’ll give it another try and see what happens.
        Thanks for responding!

  21. Could you add pumpkin purée to make this heartier. If so how much would you recommend adding?
