Pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bars? What say you?
Let’s face it – they’re basically identical save for the shape. Same great pumpkin taste, just wearing a different outfit.
If, on the other hand, you don’t own a pie pan, or if you’re intimidated by pies, no sweat! You can still enjoy pumpkin pie in bar-form, and for some reason they seem much less complicated than baking an actual pie.
The cinnamony maple pumpkin filling atop a shortbread-like grain-free pie crust is absolutely mouth-watering, and an amazing dessert to share.
Let’s get into the details!
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping are a delightful fall treat. Pumpkin pie spice lends warm flavor to these cozy muffins and that topping makes them simply irresistible.
Today is a nerve-wracking day for everyone. You may feel your fate lives outside of yourself. Is that really true?
Rather than allowing ourselves to get carried away with fear and anxiety, our energy is best served turning inward.
What can I do to improve my well-being today?
Is there something I can do to help someone?
What is really, truly important when I zoom out?
A few simple questions and some deep breathing may be all it takes to bring ourselves back to peace and to recognize: life is a journey, and it doesn’t need to be controlled.
Surrender isn’t for the weak. It’s for the courageous. When we allow life to be as it is, we’re receptive to its lessons. If we try to resist, that which we resist persists.
So we can take a collective moment, you and me, to take a deep breath, exhale out our need for control, really take a look around and find something beautiful we can appreciate.
You are your own leader.
And streusel topping always improves a muffin. Always. That is a fact.
So if you’re game for another pumpkin treat, if you’re like me and you stress-bake-and-share, I’m here for you.
Let us bake.

These paleo pumpkin swirl brownies are an amazing amalgamation of two of your favorite flavors: chocolate and pumpkin. Nope, you don’t even have to choose between them!
Because I’m so obsessed with pumpkin brownies, I created two versions of this recipe, both of which are near and dear to my heart and turn out completely differently from one another.
So make them both, because: variety 😉
Details? Here they are:

Healthy Pumpkin Cake made grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and paleo friendly. This easy-to-bake pumpkin cake is warmly-spiced and healthy enough to eat for breakfast.
If I know you at all, I have a sneaking suspicion this is the exact cake you’ve been craving.
Okay, perhaps that was a massive projection, but this is the exact cake I have been craving not only recently, but for several autumns past.
Imagine this: all the colors and flavors of fall jam packed into one healthy pumpkin cake. It comes together lightning fast, and gifts your taste buds an utter explosion of pumpkin flavor.
Have I mentioned it’s healthy?
- Lower in sugar than a regular cake, but perfectly sweet.

- Easy to make Vegan (see notes)
- Refined sugar-free
- Easy to make sugar-free/low-carb (see notes)
- Moist, fluffy, delicious
My secret ingredient to keep the cake lower in added sugar?: Ripe banana. The cake is mostly sweetened with one ripe banana (I can’t taste it over the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, but if you have ultra sensitive taste buds, you may be able to).
