I made my family a fun treat this morning for Halloween: Gluten-free Pumpkin Donuts! They are also dairy-free and free of refined sugar (the recipe calls for coconut palm sugar). I’m still learning how to use almond flour and some of my baked goods have turned out better than others.
Put ingredients in a food processor.
Fill up donut baking pan with the batter.
Bake for 15 minutes (or a minute or 2 longer). Be sure to let them cool for at least 5 minutes in the pan before removing them to a cooking rack. In the meantime, make the glaze. I got out my coffee grinder, which I never use, but I’m glad I have it for situations such as this! Grind up coconut palm sugar and tapioca starch into a powder as instructed.
After the cold front that blew through this weekend I got in the mood for soup! I love soups in the fall! Soups are such a good way to get your veggies. I found this soup from Cooking Light and tried it out for lunch today. I can eat on it all week. So delicious, light and healthy! Here’s the recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallot Soup
First, you roast the butternut squash and shallots:
Since I couldn’t find pre-cut fresh squash and didn’t feel like cutting up my own, I bought 2 bags of frozen cubed squash in steamer bags. I cooked them in the microwave first, then proceeded with the recipe. Also, since my diet prohibits me from having chicken currently, I used fat-free beef broth. It turned out very yummy! It’s very light because it has no cream in it.
Delish! It would go really well with a side salad or a sandwich too. Happy fall y’all!
I saw this recipe for a wellness shake on Doterra’s blog this morning and had to pass it along! Soooo excited to try this! Who doesn’t love pumpkin flavored everything this time of year? I’ve always said that the On Guard essential oil smells like fall, so I bet this is yummy!
I had to share a recipe today that was love at first taste. This may be my favorite veggie! I buy pre-cut, fresh butternut squash. It’s fast and a heck of a lot easier than trying to cut one up on your own. I think the brand I buy is Green Giant. Then, toss them with a little olive oil, salt, cinnamon, cumin and onion powder. Roast on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until soft and browned. Delish! So yummy for fall!
