Pumpkin Bars

Pumpkin Bars

Who loves tasty pumpkin scone, cheesecake, or bread at the local coffee shop? Unfortunately, they’re pretty unhealthyโ€ฆ

Years on your hips ASIDE, commercially produced treats are also very inflammatory causing you gastrointestinal trouble, hold on to bloat, increase cravings. This recipe is a much better option.

Now we obviously prefer to use a CLEAN protein option and while Shakeology isn’t a “protein” powder, my first choice is Vegan Vanilla Shakeo (and this week available as Vegan Pumpkin Spice!) followed by Quest unflavored.

Also check out the Substitute for Sugar. Xylitol is bad for DOGS so I’ll personally figure out a Stevia Extract substitute from the substitute list.
