For the cake:

  • ¾ cup almond flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (old fashioned oats that have been ground to a flour in a food processor or blender, certified gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or Swerve granular erythritol sweetener or brown sugar
  • teaspoons baking powder, certified gluten-free, if necessary
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup milk at room temperature
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, (not pumpkin pie filling)

For the frosting:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature (I used light)
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used nonfat)
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or Swerve Confectioners erythritol sweetener or powdered sugar


For the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray or mist with oil.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond meal and oat flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until combined.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, milk and pumpkin.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold gently to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until slightly browned and firm to the touch.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Frost with Greek yogurt cream cheese frosting.

For the frosting:

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined and smooth.
