Guys, guys, guys, guys, guys!!!! Oh. My. Gosh. I fixed the BEST pumpkin chocolate chip bread EVER last weekend and it was everything I wanted and more! Do you know that feeling when you’re fixing something and you’re crossing your fingers that everything will turn out okay, because you have your doubts that it’ll taste good? That was me! But it couldn’t have turned out better 🙂
It’s only a few more days until Fall officially begins! (Five more days to be exact, from the time I’ve written this post up, but who’s counting!) I’m as excited as can be, and I’ve been cooking and baking in the kitchen with fall in mind. All the typical fall flavors are suddenly speaking to me and pumpkin, butternut squash, and cinnamon are in almost every dish (not simultaneously though). I seriously love me some fall flavors!
Yesterday I ate 10 protein bites. It wasn’t exactly ideal, especially considering how stuffed I was, but they certainly were worth it! Cranberries and pumpkin work so well together! I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, but this worked perfectly. They generally had me thinking pumpkin cranberry cookies, scones, etc…my mind just goes to all sorts of places in food land! Next time I’ll be trying chocolate chips instead of cranberries, for a dessert-like treat.
