I am not much of a baker. I really enjoy cooking from scratch but baking just stresses me out! It is also what my kids ask for the most! They LOVE to mix and bake things. Summer time in Florida is too hot to have the oven running, so I do bake… about two months out of the year! So get out the mixer, and clean a spot off the counter and open your windows for a nice Fall breeze! I have found some healthy treats that your whole family will love that taste good and are good for you!
If you really want to up the healthy and homemade factor in your baking why don’t you try making your own pumpkin puree?
Breads: ( I am including breakfast items in this category)
Gluten Free Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting from Intoxicated on Life ~ This yummy cake is gluten free AND sugar free! This recipe uses xylitol and stevia!
A pumpkin recipe round up isn’t complete without Pumpkin Pies:
Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Pie Bars from Baker by Nature ~ These are pumpkin pies in a bar form! They do have sugar in them but you could easily modify the amounts or replace with a natural sugar. I love that they have Greek yogurt for an extra punch of protein and probiotics!
