Fudgy Pumpkin Brownie (Gluten Free, Vegan, Nut Free)

I was cleaning out my pantry yesterday (read: nesting) and I found a can of organic pumpkin puree. Even though the high season of pumpkin recipes is gone we are having some winter weather around here so I though it was fitting. I'm working on stocking our freezer with meals, snacks and treats for when our new addition arrives *hopefully any day now* so I thought pumpkin brownies would be perfect. I made these super allergy friendly since we are still working on figuring out our sons allergies. These are dense fudge style brownies, my husbands favorite. Enjoy!

Salted Carmel Protein Latte

I am long overdue for a a blog post. We have been busy around here getting ready for our new family member and doing the GAPS diet. You can read more about it here, but it is a gut healing diet that we are trying out for our son's eczema and my husband autoimmune diseases. It seems to be helping so far but it is a lot of work. I was used to preparing most of our meals but it requires that I prepare all of them plus extra things like bone broth and fermented vegetables. So how am I keeping up with everything while nearing the end of my pregnancy? I treat myself to one of these delicious lattes quite often. There is some debate about caffeine and pregnancy, I'm in the 'a little bit is okay' club but this latte works great with decaf or dandelion coffee too. Enjoy!
