The Yummiest Pumpkin Bars

November 21, 2018

Every year, right before Thanksgiving, we make a batch of Grandma Jacks infamous Pumpkin Bars.  You think you know what they taste like but I can promise you they’re 100x better.  We’ve already devoured this batch and my mouth is watering like crazy.  Am I going to need to make another batch tonight?  Probably haha!  They’re honestly the lightest, fluffiest, could eat the whole pan, most delicious pumpkin bars you’ve ever had.  They’re full of gluten and fat and lots of sugar.  If you’re looking for something healthy or low carb, this is not your recipe.  The entire goal of these pumpkin bars is to make you happy and so they’re full of alllll the good stuff! PUMPKIN BARS: Preheat ove to 350 degrees and spray a jelly roll pan Ingredients: 4 Eggs 1 cup Oil 2 1/4 cup Sugar 15 oz can of Pumpkin 2 cups Flour 1/2 teaspoon Salt 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon Baking Soda Instructions: Beat together the eggs, oil and

Hey babes! I’m so excited to finally share this low-carb and gluten-free pizza crust recipe with you, it’s SOOO GOOOOD!!!! Just a quick recap: Brian and I started the Keto diet back in June and we were steadfast for a little over a month. I did a triathlon sprint (guys I took THIRD place in my age division. Why I haven’t bragged about that until now I have no idea haha!) while in Michigan visiting family and fell out of ketosis with the carbs I took the night before and right after the race. I tried and tried to get back into it but just didn’t have it in me to follow a strict meal plan. So late one night the chocolate chip cookie cravings came and we just fell off the wagon. We aren’t doing Keto anymore but hopefully when things settle down and I can trust myself to commit, we’ll get back into it – I really loved the diet. It was easy and I didn’t feel like I was really sacraficing anything. We found a lot of super yummy recipes and I was happy and totally satisfied on it. It’s just hard to get into. And if you get out if it you’ve gotta be strict with what you’re eating until you can get back in. I followed the fit2fat2fit meal plan for a week and then figured out my macros so I could switch up what I was eating!!
ANYWAY, with that out of the way this was and still is one of our very favorite low-carb keto crusts. I’ve tried several over the years including cauliflower pizza crusts and this won wins hands down. This recipe is from Wholesome Yum, she’s AMAZING to follow if you’re gluten-free or low-carb. We loved all her recipes, especially the cheesecake!
