{GF} Pumpkin Pie Pancakes


I opened a can of pumpkin puree the other day to make some pumpkin cream cheese icing (fail - but it tasted great!) for a friend’s birthday cake, and then I had 3/4 of the can left.

{GF} Banana Oat Pancakes


This is another recipe that I’ve had in the drawer for about 6 months – I make them almost once a week, and they go over SUPER well with everyone who’s sat at my table.

{GF} Banana Oat Cookies – Baked in the BBQ!

We’ve been enjoying variations on this gluten-free cookie base for the past few months here in our house.  The original recipe that The Burlap Bag posted was 2 ingredients: Bananas & Oats, with the mix-ins of your choice.  The simplicity of that is nice, and a 2-ingredient cookie is a great headline on Pinterest to draw in a crowd, but I found ...
