There is no way this one was getting left behind. In my sugar binging days I would have a chai latte and pumpkin scone for breakfast every day. YIKES!! Glad to see we can create a much healthier version of that delectably evil treat. Check out the Starbucks copycat vegan and paleo pumpkin scones here.

I want to eat this photo. This paleo pumpkin pancake recipe looks so delicious I could hardly wait to try the recipe. You can dress up a pumpkin pancake in many different ways. I love to put thinly sliced banana over a layer of cashew butter with a trickle of maple syrup over the top. What is your favorite?

I know, it’s fall. Ice cream seems weird. Not this rich and smooth coconut milk pumpkin ice cream. Trust me. After a heavy holiday meal, this is the perfect compliment to a lovely evening. Or, you can just eat it in front of the TV, binge watching Netflix. Your choice.

  1. I’ve been dying to try one of those “cakes” you can make in a mug because I now live by myself and baking a whole cake is just going to lead to horrible things. I’m so glad there’s a pumpkin version of it!!

  2. The alfredo and chive biscuit recipes sound good!

    I’ll be making my third batch of this pumpkin soup/stew this weekend.

    1. Bake an organic pumpkin
    2. Scrape out seeds
    – Bake seeds separately
    3. Puree pulp in Vitamix
    4. Layer chopped veggies on bottom of Crock Pot
    – Sweet potatoes, onion, broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, etc.
    5. Lamb/beef roast on top of veggies
    6. Cup of pumpkin puree or more as desired
    7. Cup of water or more if needed to cover at least half the roast
    8. Cook on low for 8-10 hours

    This would probably feed six since it lasts me several days.
