I will confess, Halloween is not a “holiday” I care to celebrate. I bake some cupcakes or cookies with my younger boys every year and decorate them with whatever I can find that is dye free, high fructose corn syrup free, in addition to being gf,df,sf. It’s not easy, gosh the amount of junk out there, wow. The reason I don’t care for the holiday is not because of the lack of allergen free candy, no, it’s about the idea that there is a holiday celebrating evil spirits, and then we give away candy for it. As if we need more crap to add to life. But that’s just me. Pardon my venting moment, and please don’t tell my children I told you that.

What brings the feeling of autumn into your home more than the smell of pumpkin pancakes?
Despite how chilly it may be outside, all is warm and toasty when digging into a stack of warm, fluffy pancakes slathered with some maple syrup. Oh boy, I just made myself really hungry for pancakes right now. I tend to do that to myself quite often, which is why you will find me running most mornings…unfortunately, I was not blessed with one of those bodies where one can eat anything. It’s a good thing I love to run.
With the fall season here you know what that means … anything, and everything, pumpkin. I saw a whoopie pie recipe by Martha Stewart on Pinterest that looked so good that I had to give it a try. Hers were not gluten free, nor dairy free so I came up with my version of pumpkin whoopie pies, with nutella style spread.
