1 tsp of vanilla extract or paste
1 cup of teff flour

Instructions

First, preheat oven to 350 F, then add ACV to the milk and let this sit for 10 mins. Add dates, milk+AVC, almond butter, and stevia in a blender. Blend until smooth.

Then add the pumpkin purée and vanilla paste. Blend until smooth.

Use a muffin container with or without muffin paper and bake for 350 for 25 mins, then let it cool for 15 min. Makes 9 muffins.

For the frosting, just add all ingredients in a highspeed blender, and blend until everything is completely emulsified.

Pour frosting into a container and let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes. The longer you let it sit the thicker it gets. Serve and enjoy.
