We’re sure you’re about to love this Pumpkin Crumb Cake! Yes, it’s a gluten free dessert, but as always, you won’t find refined sugar, dairy, soy, or chemicals in it either. It’s delicious, moist and comes with another one of our motivational thoughts to keep you moving on down that road to health and beauty! xo
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!)
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…
