  • You are free to substitute the all-purpose flour with wheat flour, but the texture won’t be as moist.
  • If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free all-purpose flour. But then again, you can’t expect the texture to be that moist.
  • You can use coconut sugar instead of regular sugar.
  • You can also utilize homemade pumpkin puree.
