Part II:  You picked your pumpkins, now what?

Part II: You picked your pumpkins, now what?

ShareThe other day I shared how fun it was for the kids to paint and decorate their pumpkins. For today I will show you more options besides traditional pumpkin carving.  I was inspired by Martha Stewart’s lace patterned pumpkins…  but let’s be realistic here, who […]

Gluten Free Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Gluten Free Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

ShareOne of my favorite parts of the pumpkin…. the seeds!  Please don’t throw these little treats out….  Take the time to go thru and separate all of the seeds from the membrane.  I know it’s annoying, but maybe assign whoever finishes carving their pumpkins first… […]

Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

These are by no means healthy.  But what brownies are?  They shouldn’t be! They are a comfort food.  These remind me of my favorite non-gluten free brownies by Barefoot Contessa.  They are great served hot right out of the oven with a big scoop of icecream.  They are melt in your mouth gooey goodness. But interestingly enough, my favorite way to eat them is chilled, right out of the fridge or even freezer…the texture becomes more like fudge, rich and decadent.  I also like to make this in mini muffin tins, like brownie bites, and keep a stash of them in the freezer.  They have become my favorite midnight snack…. and after you try them, they might become yours too….

Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour, packed
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup nuts (I prefer pecans or walnuts), chopped
  • 1/2 cup chocolate, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate together.
  3. Add honey to bring down temperature before adding the egg.
  4. Whisk in egg.
  5. Add coconut flour, salt and baking soda. Combine.
  6. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips.
  7. Pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
  8. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Do not overbake.
  • these brownies they cut best when they are cold
  • can easily be a nut free brownie by omitting the nuts
  • for cake-like brownies, simply add one more egg

Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins

ShareThis is a simple pumpkin muffin base.  I have them pictured below with chocolate chips, but you could easily add your favorite nuts as well.  I prefer not to use cupcake liners, as I like the texture on the outside to have a slight crunch […]
