AIP & Paleo Pumpkin Roll

AIP & Paleo Pumpkin Roll


6 servings


  • Cake
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tbsp grass-fed gelatin powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Frosting
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, coconut milk, and coconut oil. Mix in all remaining cake ingredients, except gelatin powder.
  2. Sprinkle gelatin powder in a thin layer over wet ingredients and stir in quickly so that it doesn’t clump. Allow mixture to rest for about 15 minutes for the coconut flour to absorb moisture and the gelatin to activate.
  3. Place dough onto an 18x13 parchment lined baking sheet, spread thinly (dough should be 1/8 in. thick). Bake for 18 minutes. Let cool slightly, then place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
  4. Combine frosting ingredients. Once cake has cooled, spread on cake layer. Leave cake flat, or carefully roll into a jelly roll form.
