As the weather is turning cooler, pumpkins are ripening in the fields, which makes me think of this recipe. For those of you who are looking for a gluten free, grain free. something sweet to have with your coffee, this has been a fail-proof recipe for me. Try it once, and it will become a favorite. I’m not sure where I found this recipe…so unfortunately I can’t give credit to the creator of this cake. 😦
GRAIN FREE PUMPKIN BARS
1 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 cup almond butter
2/3 cup honey
4 eggs (you can try using flax “eggs” instead)
4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice (Try making your own by combining 2 tsp.ground cinnamon, 1 tsp. ground ginger, 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. ground cloves)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350* F. Grease an 9″ x 13″ glass pan with coconut oil or butter.
Combine all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well until a smooth batter forms.
Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake at 350*F for approximately 25 minutes, or until the centre is firm and a tester (a toothpick, a sharp small knife or a skewer) inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Cool on a rack before cutting. You can top this with a whipped topping if you wish.
Hello old and new friends! I have begun this website in response to a need that many people I know have expressed for information about wellness. While I am not a medical person, and do not intend any of the information I post to be construed as medical advice, I am a complete wellness advocate and researcher, and my hope is to help some on their way to achieving an abundant life of wellness!
Many of these first posts will be recipes and resources which you have already asked for. Many more will be based on the research I have done, especially over the last 10 years or so. In just the past 3 years, there has been an astounding number of books, blogs, documentaries, docuseries, films, websites, medical and non-medical articles, and YouTube videos which have flooded the information pathways, making it confusing and overwhelming on where to start if you are looking to improve your overall wellness. Further confusion has been created by media reporting on the latest fads and diets, many of which are heavily subsidized (in the background) by large corporations.
So, I will attempt to help you start simple, to make my posts fair and fun, and to give you references to sources that I have come to trust. I will attempt to give credit where I am able, and let you know when it is my opinion I am expressing versus someone else’s opinion.
Feel free to comment on any of my blog posts. If you prefer to email me, there is a contact link you can fill in. I will answer you as soon as I am able.
Here’s to embracing a lifestyle which brings you abundant life and wellness!
