Pumpkins are delicious and very low in calories yet good source of vitamins, fibers and antioxidants. The golden colour and sweet, mellow taste adapts really well to many flavours and wonderful in all kinds of autumnal dishes. So if you've been searching for a healthy and tasty autumn snack recipe, go ahead and try this quick and delectable pumpkin recipe!

Pumpkin DoughPeanut Filling
  • 1 Small Hokkaido pumpkin
  • 120 g Whole grain spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice blend (or cinnamon) 1-2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • Sesame seeds
  • Poppy seeds
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 200 g Roasted peanut, chopped
  • 80 g Butter, melted
  • 100 g Powdered sugar
  1. Cut the pumpkin in half. Scrape out the seeds and pulp from the center. Place pumpkin halves on a baking sheet, cut side down, and roast in a 180C/350F for 45 minutes, or until pumpkin is fork-tender. Peel off the skin from the pumpkin. Place them in a blender and process until smooth. You need about 500 grams of pumpkin puree. Store the rest in the freezer for the later use.
  2. Mix the pumpkin puree, whole grain spelt flour, and spice in a bowl. Mix until the dough is smooth. Add more flour if needed. Stir together the chopped peanut, melted butter and powdered sugar in a bowl.
  3. Divide dough into 28 portions and shape each into a ball. Flatten each dough into a round, fill the center with a teaspoon of peanut filling. Gather the edges to enclose the filling. Coat the ball with sesame or poppy seeds. Lightly press it down to flatten the ball.
  4. Grease a baking tray with olive oil. Place the pumpkin patties on the tray and bake at 180C/350F for 20 minutes. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |
