Pumpkin EVERYTHING!!!

Standard

Of course, I’m on the eat-drink-live everything pumpkin flavored bandwagon, because gosh damn it’s delicious!!!

The So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Coconut milk had me saying “Is this real life?!” It’s better than pumpkin pie… It’s better than any pumpkin flavored anything I’ve ever tried. I drink it on its own, in coffee, and in tea. I plan on making over night oats or baked oatmeal with it soon.

Don’t miss this one my friends!

I had to forcefully keep my hands in my pocket while at the store, because there is also a Mint Chocolate variety. If I bought that, my life would be over as I know it. I’d do nothing but down cartons of it at a time.

Who am I kidding… I’m getting it next time and I’ll let you know.

Do you have any great pumpkin finds?

Pumpkin Protein Bars

Standard

These bars are just so good! Nothing beats pumpkin in my book! They are sweet and salty, crunchy and gooey, all at the same time. These are a great source of protein, travel well, and stay fresh for a week (when properly stored). I know you will love them!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup whole almonds

1/2 cup salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds with no shell)

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup maple syrup or agave syrup

1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave syrup for top

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in wet ingredients. Firmly press mixture onto a heavily greased baking sheet into a square shape.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of maple syrup on top of the bars. Cool completely and cut into bars. This mix makes approximately six 1″ x 5″ bars, that are about 3/4″ thick.

Enjoy!
