    The directions call to mix the pumpkin, sugar and brown sugar together but I don’t see any sugar except for brown sugar listed in the ingredients. Could you please let me know if there indeed is sugar besides the brown sugar in this recipe?

    This looks amazing! Do you know if you can use regular flour or a combo of white and whole wheat flour?

      Yes, you can use regular flour or a combo of white/ whole wheat flour–just sub in cup for cup for the gluten free all purpose mix.
