Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

It is hard to write about only healthy pumpkin oatmeal cookies when so much is going on inside me. I will be plain honest. So much of what I do in my day to day life is tied to darn cookies. Why?

I remember baking the cookies, everyone loving them and thinking to save the…

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread

Aaaand today is the first full day of Kindergarten. Aaaand my organically fed child is sick at home since Friday. Sigh. By this point I am starting to think I might have a kangaroo’s DNA in me.

Clean Pumpkin Pie

Hands down, this is the best clean pumpkin pie I ever had! It is quite easy to make delicious pie with a bunch of butter, flour and sugar. But when it comes to a clean dessert, it’s a challenge. I was up for it, although scared to death. In the last 3 days, I made 3 pumpkin pies. That’s why I want you to close your eyes and pretend you can’t see those small white dots of cream cheese. It was experiment #3 and a thought of making pumpkin…
