The crisp, fresh fall air has arrived.
When you think of fall, a few things come to mind: apples, beautiful coloured leaves, Thanksgiving, football, warm sweaters… and pumpkin.
While mainstream eating trends have forced the heavenly pumpkin-flavour into almost everything, there really is no beating the classic pumpkin pie.
Unfortunately, the common ingredients found in traditional pumpkin pie can usually categorize it as an occasional dessert-- but where’s the fun in that?
If you’re a pumpkin pie lover like us, then you’ll LOVE our Pumpkin Bites. They’re super simple with deliciously nutrient-dense ingredients AND they taste just like pumpkin pie-- but don’t take our word for it, try it out!
