I found this recipe on Pinterest – I love Pinterest!!!
It turned out lovely and moist and the dark chocolate gives it a big punch of flavour when you bite into them. I used fresh pumpkin which was a little watery so added shredded coconut into the cake mix. I swapped the pecans for walnuts and topped it with slivered almonds instead of the coconut flake

- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup raisins or cranberries (optional)
Mix almond meal, bi-carb, baking powder and spices into a bowl. Stir in eggs and honey, and mix until combined. Stir in pumpkin. Fold in pecans, chocolate chips and raisins/cranberries. Pour batter into a well-greased baking pan and sprinkle coconut flakes on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 180 degrees C.
