For the dough:

  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp sweetener (coconut sugar or honey works)

  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp honey or maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  3. Heat your milk for 1 or 2 minutes in microwave.
  4. Gradually add in the hot milk and mix dough together until it become a thick dough like batter.
  5. Scoop out a portion a little small than palm of your hand, roll into a ball.
  6. Should make around 7-8 balls.
  7. Press ball flat then place your choice of filling inside. Small spoonful of pumpkin then your other choice of ingredient.
  8. So if you are making the sweet dough balls, add 1 tsp nut butter, small spoonful or less of pumpkin, dash of cinnamon, and a drizzle (1/2 tsp) of honey. See notes for cheese option.
  9. Next cup the dough ball in your hand, so that you can close the filling. See picture in hand below.

  12. Once on baking sheet, brush each dough ball with a little coconut oil or butter.
  13. Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until dough turns brown.
  14. I added a sprinkle of coconut sugar on top before baking for the sweet dough balls


If you want the savory option filling. Add a small spoonful of pumpkin, 1/2 thumb size cube of cheese, and sprinkle with any seasoning of choice. Maybe 1/8 tsp garlic salt, herbs, etc. Do not add sugar on top of before baking like i did with the sweet version. Just brush with melted butter or oil and bake upside down.
