This recipe is gluten free, grain-free, dairy free, sugar free & no one will ever know!

I LOVE Snickerdoodles!  They take me all the way back to 7th grade, when I was so excited to sign up for Home Economics (not because I thought I’d be an amazing homemaker, but because we’d get to make cookies–dahhhh, a person has to have priorities 🙂

But for some reason our teacher was more into sewing than cooking which I really wasn’t thrilled about.  So when she finally agreed to let us make some cookies, my life changed for the better.

The cookies we made were Snickerdoodles and they were ahhhmazing!  I don’t know if it was because we had been starved in that class, and our bodies were trying to hoard, but I couldn’t get enough of those yummy treats.

So when it came to changing our diets, I was determined to come up with a good, safe alternative, come heck or highwater or whatever those cliche’s might be 🙂

The really exciting thing is, I think we did it!  This recipe is not only gluten-free, grain free, dairy-free, and sugar free, but it also has some ingredients that help boost our nutritional intake-yay!

AND btw, we’ve got some super exciting news! If you are changing out your pantry and want GREAT DEALS on quality organic ingredients, you’re going to love our latest ORGANIC MARKET that we’ve partnered up with to give you amazing quality for a steal! Better than anywhere else we’ve seen, amazon included, and everything they sell is FRESH!

Pumpkin Crumb Cake – no grain, gluten, refined sugar, dairy or soy!

psst, this recipe is in our new  “Beauty In Every Bite Desserts” Cookbook 🙂

This was another Pinterest Inspired recipe that made me stop and force myself not to drool.  Then I went to work on mass reconstruction and conversion to make this amazing Pumpkin Crumb Cake – with no grain, gluten, refined sugar, dairy or soy, of course!

I’m really excited because we’re heading to my mom & dad’s for Thanksgiving this week and I’m doing desserts and sweet potatoes–ohmygosh, I have the best recipe for those too.  If you’d like that recipe, let me know asap and I’ll get it posted too!

But I love doing desserts because it’s so fun to come up with family favorites that I transform into yummy healthy alternatives.  The poor family actually had to choke down some pretty sad dishes through the early years, but now they actually like what I create–big whew on that (especially for them, lol!)

motivational quote, dalai lama

This recipe actually looks like a ton of ingredients and like it would be really hard, but the truth is, it’s really simple.  The secret is to have all of these ingredients all of the time. 🙂

And I guess you could use canned pumpkin if you need to, but it’s actually really fun to use those perfectly good pumpkins that may be sitting around as fall decorations (not the plastic ones tho-yikes!)

AND to make it simple, we’ve found a market with the best deal ever on quality organic ingredients. Just check them out, their prices are better than amazon, or anyone else we’ve ever found. Because they provide a way for our viewers to try incredible healthy ingredients and foods for huge discounts, we’re big fans, and have set up to be affiliates to their program, so you can get the best bang for your organic buck!…AND btw, we can make a small commission on some of the ingredients below, however we will never recommend anything to you that we don’t completely believe in, or that we wouldn’t use ourselves. Alright, let’s go…
