Now I know that when I shared my Unicorn Poop Recipe with you and told you it was super tasty, you probably didn’t believe me. But for reals, we gobbled them up so fast, the family was craving more in no time flat, so I had to get to work creating another poop recipe. Since it’s October, that means two things: there are lots of pumpkins all over the place, and Halloween is in everyone’s face. So why fight it – it’s the prime season for making Paleo Pumpkin Poop!
The creation of another poop recipe
So yes, while everyone out there was busy trying to create pumpkin spice heaven, I was busy in my kitchen, trying to picture a pumpkin taking a poop in my oven. Glamorous? Nope. But giggle snorts did ensue. Well, at least in my little world they did. Since pumpkin is a very healthy food, I decided that it should have healthy poop too. Reasonable, isn’t it? Well it doesn’t matter. I make the rules here.
So, I grabbed some eggs, some pumpkin (yes, pumpkins are cannibals), honey and vanilla, coconut and coconut flour and mixed them up together. I felt obligated to throw in some cinnamon and ginger too, which ended up being a good call. The mixture was a nice orange color, but it needed a little je-ne-sais-quoi. So I threw in some raisins for a little sweetness and texture and some raw pumpkin seeds to add some colour and crunch. How fancy of me!
Now when it comes to shaping the poop, that’s completely up to your discretion, but I decided that mine would be little logs. Firstly, because it was easy to shape them that way, and secondly, because I tremendously enjoyed the thought of log-shapped poop cookies. After about 10 minutes or so of log-shaping and acting like a 10 year-old boy, I finally had about 18 little treats to pop into the oven.
When you’re putting together weird recipes like this, you’re always pleasantly surprised when the food is edible, and even more so when it’s good, so I was getting excited when an intoxicating aroma starting wafting out of the oven. Yes, intoxicating, not toxic. Sigh. If only our diaper pail could take a cue from the pumpkin poop. Once the logs were baked and had cooled off a little bit, I was giddy! They were nice and moist, a perfect combo of pumpkin pie and coconut. Think Thanksgiving in the Caribbean. And poop. I quickly poured myself a cup of coffee and sat down to eat a few before the Acadian and my two-year-old realized there were cookies ready for the taking. Good thing, because I barely had time to finish my photos before they were all gone.
So here is a printable version of the recipe, should you be brave enough to try this at home, my poop-loving ghoulish friends! And if you do happen to make these, please-oh-please, do come back and tell me about it!
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup cooked pumpkin
- ¼ cup honey
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅓ cup coconut flour
- 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- ¼ cup raisins (optional)
- ¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper
- Crack your eggs into a medium sized bowl and mix with a fork.
- Add pumpkin, honey and vanilla to the eggs and mix well.
- Add in the coconut and coconut flour and stir until well combined.
- Add the raisins and raw pumpkin seeds.
- Your batter should be thick enough to hold it's shape (if it's not, add in a tiny bit more coconut flour), so now you get to be creative and mold it into poop shapes. Be creative! Have fun! I liked making them into little logs.
- Place each pumpkin poop on the parchment-lined cookie sheet. These will not expand a whole lot, so you don't have to worry about spacing them very far apart.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 17 minutes. They are done when they are firm to the touch and the underside is golden brown.
While you’re here…
- Why don’t you check out the poop recipe that inspired it all: Paleo Unicorn Poop Chews?
- Or another Halloween inspired poop recipe – Paleo Witch Poop or Paleo Bat Poop?
- Worried about baking these pumpkin poop cookies for your kid’s class after the whole vagina cookie kerfuffle? That’s ok, I’ve got you covered there too – Crystal over at Crystal and Co. has this super cute, much more socially acceptable idea for pumpkin poop.
I also have non-poop recipes too. I know, cra-zy!
- Here’s one for 1 Minute Buttertarts
- Here’s another for Baked Beans. Yeah, I know baked beans aren’t paleo.
And if you’re into pumpkin humor…
