Gluten-Free Round Up…Seasonal Pumpkin Recipes

gluten-free-pumpkin-recipesFall is here and that means pumpkins are starting to appear on your neighbor’s door step and in grocery stores, which is the universal signal to start carving and cooking pumpkin. Why is it most of us tend to cook with pumpkin only around Halloween and Thanksgiving?  Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, fiber and it is low in calories, so we should find ways to work it into our diet throughout the year.

A brookie is a combination of brownie batter and cookie dough, which creates a half chocolate chip and half brownie cookie, or the best of both worlds. I don’t usually post recipes, but when I find one that ‘speaks’ to me like this one, then I feel compelled to share it.

After getting permission from the lovely folks at McCormick, I give you the recipe (makes five dozen) for the brookie: Read More »
