tomorrow is the first official day of fall.
and so, today, i preempt it with my first pumpkin recipe of the season. maybe one of the easiest, most guilt-less pumpkin recipes you’ll see.
the recipe redux has challenged us this month to make a sweet, no-bake dessert. with that brings super-quick prep times, and in this case, all natural goodness.
these bites are free of refined sugars, free of gluten, and full of delicious holiday flavors.
