Just wanted to let you know that these easy, pie-inspired pinwheels are sponsored by my friends over at Flatout!
These healthy pumpkin pie pinwheels are only 6 ingredients, under 200 calories a serving and are ready in 20 minutes! They’re an easy, vegan-friendly snack or party food for fall!
Just when you think you have all the pumpkin recipes you need.
I bring you one that is SO simple.
And SO, ridiculously ADDICTING.
There is a zero percent chance that you’re even surprised by the fact that, why yes, Taylor DID follow suit of the pumpkin paleo cookies, pumpkin oatmeal breakfast bars and pumpkin gluten free grilled cheese hummus sandwich, and post another pumpkin recipe.
But, you guys. 6 INGREDIENTS. CRUNCHY pecans. Tastes like pumpkin pie. But, liiiiike, no refined sugar or dairy as far as your eyeballs can see.
I knew you wouldn’t be mad.
Not to mention the sneaky boost of protein from Flatout’s ProteinUP Carbdown wraps! You thought that Flatout wraps were only for making A-C-T-U-A-L wraps like the zucchini noodles blueberry basil wrap or honey garlic roasted chickpeas wraps. Today, we’re thinking “outside the wrap.” ProteinUp stealthily swoops in, and hugs the creamy-spicy-sweet filling in the epitome of healthy, “crust” like deliciousness.
See also: “crust-like.” As in “you don’t have to spend 42 hours angrily trying to roll a perfectly circular pie crust so that everyone will think you are basically a Martha Stewart when it comes to impressive, fancy dessert-making.
I said it in the paleo pecan pie bars, and I’ll say it again. Circles are hard.
Rolling tender-chewy-ALREADY-MADE-FOR-YOU Flatout? That’s the SWEET SPOT.
Sweet like agave swirled around with smooth pumpkin puree and hit with a heavy dose of warm cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, and then microwaved until SUPER thick, ultra-creamy and so spreadable that you might just want to spread it on everything EVERRRRR,
You KNOW IT.
But, HOOOOLD up for, liiike, 2 seconds. MICROWAVE spread-able pumpkin-pie-like filling is happening. We’re talking about the fact that only a measly 5 minutes stands between you and an EPIC pumpkin pinwheel moment happening in your very real, right-now kinda life.
You know I <3 the microwave for super-fast cooking. Heck, we’ve made microwave peanut protein pancakes, microwave spiralized gluten free apple crisp and even cookies for our cookies and cream paleo protein bars.
It’s like the oven. TIMES A MILLION. And it makes the hate-waiting-for-food-to-cook person that I am really excited. Mostly because it means that there is less minutes between food and my face.
You understand me on so many levels. I feel it in my soul.
I also feel sad. Sad that this is the first pinwheel recipe ever. Not ever as in “ever on the blog” (well, it is.) BUT, I’m talking about “ever” as in “ever that I have EVER put into my mouth.”
You’re judging my street cred’ as a food blogger HARD right now.
I guess my momma was too busy making me peanut butter and chocolate chip sandwiches (real thing that actually happened in my childhood lunchboxes) and never thought to make pretty, spiral-shaped wraps stuffed with yummy things like cheese and meat and a few veggies to pretend it’s healthy.
This also means that the “pinwheel” has been drastically left to my own interpretation.
And I interpret it to be much, MUCH better when these spiral-y layers are spread with luscious, rich pumpkin, spicy cinnamon and a toasty-roasty pecan CRUNCH that I just can’t get out of my head.
I’m thinking that it’ll happen to you too.
Pumpkin Pinwheel mind control commencing in 3…2…1.
Vegan Healthy Pumpkin Pie Pinwheels
- 1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Pecans roughly chopped
- 1 Cup + 2 Tbsp Canned pumpkin puree
- 4 1/2 Tbsp Agave
- 2 1/4 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
- 3 Flatout ProteinUP CarbDown Core12 Flatbread Wraps (use the Flatout gluten free wrap if needed)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spread the pecans on a small baking sheet. Bake until dark brown and nutty smelling, about 5-10 minutes. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, agave, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Pour into a small, microwave-safe dish and microwave on 50% power until the mixture darkens and get's very thick and creamy, about 10 minutes. *
- Divide the pumpkin mixture between the 3 wraps and spread out - your wrap should be covered pretty thick with the spread!
- Sprinkle the toasted pecans on the wraps, avoiding the very outside of the wrap (it's hard to roll it up if there's chunks of pecans on the outside.)
- Roll each wrap up tightly and chill for at least 30 minute to set the filling.
- Slice each wrap into 8 pinwheels and serve!
Recipe Notes* If you want to bake these in the oven, use a small baking dish and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the mixture darkens and gets very thick.
