In my quest to lighten my cabinets of all the cans of organic pumpkin I bought a while back, I've been trying to bake more pumpkin items lately. This recipe also takes care of some of the bags of unsweetened coconut I found in the fridge. so it's worked out really well, there too. Oh, plus, they taste great!

1 tsp powdered ginger

3/4 c grated unsweetened coconut
