- Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sweetener, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.

Why You Need Both Almond Flour and Coconut Flour
Organic pumpkin is very moist. I use coconut flour in this recipe to account for that (coconut flour is very drying), but almond flour is still needed as well, in order to prevent the cake from being overly dense.
