Though Halloween is a prime time for all things pumpkin, pumpkin flavored drinks and desserts are not just for fall anymore. These drinks and desserts you’ll want to make all year long. But fall let’s you make them with real pumpkin. For any recipe that calls for canned pumpkin, you can substitute real pumpkin instead.

The delicious aroma and taste are reasons alone to make these recipes. The added health benefits are an added bonus. Pumpkin is filled with vitamin A which is great for vision, beta carotene which may help prevent cancer and vitamin C which boosts your immune system. Antioxidants can keep your skin wrinkle free and it’s a great source of fiber making it a terrific option for weight loss diets. Plus, the high concentration of potassium found in pumpkin is a great way to restore electrolytes after working out which will re-energize you.

When you’re cleaning the pumpkin make sure not to throw out the seeds. They contain phytosterols which reduces bad cholesterol and helps you maintain a healthy heart as well as amino acids which can improve your mood. As an added health bonus, these recipes are all gluten free so between the taste and the health benefits there’s no reason not to try them today.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip, Raisin, Pumpkin, Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Servings: 8-10

Ingredients:

[Note: Measurements are approximate. If you love peanut butter or pumpkin add a bit more, if you don’t love some of the spices add a bit less or forego entirely]

  • ½ cup crunchy peanut butter

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • 2 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey

  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp walnut extract

  • ½ cup chocolate chips

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup chopped mixed nuts

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir well by hand.
  3. Spray 8 x8 pan with gluten free non-stick cooking spray

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

The bars will still look slightly under cooked, but don’t worry as they will become firmer as they cool. Allow the bars to cool very well before slicing. Any leftovers can be stored on the counter top, in the refrigerator. They can also be stored in the freezer so you can always have a supply of these on hand for guests or for when you don’t feel like making dessert.

Set of Four 12 Ounce White Soup Crocks

Ecodesign Bowls - Set of 4 - Premium French Onion Soup Bowls - Off-White - 300 ml (10.5 Ounce) with the Cork Coasters – Porcelain Classic European Style Healthy Portion Crocks  – Oven/Microwave safe
Ecodesign Bowls - Set of 4 - Premium French Onion Soup Bowls - Off-White - 300 ml (10.5 Ounce) with the Cork Coasters – Porcelain Classic European Style Healthy Portion Crocks – Oven/Microwave safe

Looking to replace my soup crocks which broke during a move, I decided to buy white ones instead of the brown ones I had. I make a lot of dark colored soups and stews and wanted something that would provide an attractive contrast when serving to guests. I searched through a number of different products but kept coming back to these. They hold 12 ounces of soup, a large amount for a traditional crock. Though I was skeptical, I found that they can be used in the microwave and oven without the porcelain browning. I have even used them under a broiler for 10 minutes without them burning or breaking. The set comes with four single serving crocks designed in a traditional bowl shape letting you fill them to the brim without spilling. These crocks are perfect for serving practically anything you normally serve in a bowl.
