October Means Pumpkin Flavored Gluten-Free Goodness

image

Recently we had a pretty involved Facebook discussion about pumpkin flavored baked goods. Since it is the first week of October, I thought now is the appropriate time to share some yummy pumpkin deliciousness. Beyond the pumpkin spiced latte’s everyone raves about at your local coffee shop, pumpkin cupcakes, muffins, cookies, ciders are all the rage.  Pumpkin is one of the first signs that fall is in the air.  Beyond searching Pinterest and searching “gluten-free pumpkin recipes” here is a list of some pumpkin goodies you can purchase or make that our Facebook friends shared with us:

Pumpkin Cookies Made to Order
Fresh – Simply Delicious & Organic makes AMAZING (or so they say) pumpkin spice cookies for the fall! They bake over 100 of them to take to Riverside Arts Market from 10am to 4pm each Saturday. They usually sell out of them but you can call ahead and pre-purchase. Their cookies are always gluten-free, dairy free, and delicious!

Sippers Coffee House has been baking gluten-free pumpkin muffins.  They use a standard pumpkin muffin recipe and add a teaspoon of xanthan gum to give the muffins more lift. You can preorder if you prefer for them to do the work.

Do you have a favorite gluten-free pumpkin baked good recipe?  Do you even dare share it with us.  My favorite is to roast the pumpkin seeds.  MMM,
