About 1 Hour or Less, Bread, Breakfast, Freezer Friendly, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Paleo Friendly

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been known to get in a breakfast rut. And a lunch rut. Sometimes a dinner rut. Typical of my gluten free approach to food –  when I find something I like, I have a tendency to eat it often, like everyday, for weeks on end until I get so bored with it, I need a long break. So goodbye eggs and salsa. I’ll see you again in several months. Hello, easy-to-make pumpkin spice coffee cake!

This recipe is reminiscent of what I remember as monkey bread. As a kid, we used to roll canned biscuit dough in cinnamon and sugar, slather it in melted butter, then presto! Out came a delicious cake that needed no knife and that we ate way too much of. This one is the same, except the dough had some yummy pumpkin, a bit more warmth than just cinnamon alone, and a honey vanilla butter for it all to bask in while in the oven. Dairy free? No problem! Just a quick substitution and you’re in on the yumminess! Continue Reading

img_0230I hope I don’t overdo the pumpkin everything in these next few months. Well, that’s probably impossible. I love all things pumpkin. Even soup, which I’m sure I’ll post something when the weather gets cooler. So these cupcakes are everything fall…lots of warm flavors from pumpkin pie spice and, with the Chipotle Pumpkin Seed Brittle, a tiny kick if you desire. Not only are these gluten free, but grain free and dairy free. And these freeze well. That’s why I created this to make 8 regular-sized cupcakes or about 16 mini cupcakes (pictured). So I don’t have to think twice or do much when the pumpkin craving hits. Continue Reading

img_0231Ahh, one of my favorite seasons…not just cooler weather and changing leaves, but all things pumpkin! After scoring a buy-one-get-one free deal on pumpkin seeds, I’m making lots of stuff with these nutritious little gems. Here’s a pumpkin seed brittle, created because I needed a fun garnish for my Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes, but it’s delicious on its own as a snack too. My daughter’s friend’s assessment: “Oooh, it tastes like autumn!” If you don’t like the heat of chipotle, by all means, omit. If you like more heat, well then, you know what to do. Continue Reading

IMG_1268…with Salted Caramel Sauce. I love pretty much all things pumpkin. Over the past few years, I’ve made some decent GF pumpkin pie, but this year, I wanted something a little different. This is similar to cheese cake (but uses Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese), has plenty of pumpkin pie flavors, and the caramel sauce…mmmm…just sends it over the top. Next day, it becomes the breakfast of this champion, if there’s any left over!
