Most people don’t realize that pumpkins are loaded with Vitamin A – over 100% of the daily, FDA-recommended value is in just a half-cup serving — plus good amounts of Vitamins C and E, iron and fiber, to name a few of its other benefits. This low-carb, low-fat nutritional powerhouse vegetable is a natural to combine with a low glycemic sweetener like agave nectar.
I made a batch of these gluten-free pumpkin muffins with agave this week. And, I’m glad I did!
They rose well and have a smooth, attractive crust. And, they hold their texture when broken open, not crumbling apart like some muffins do.

The other night I needed a fast meal — more than that, I needed to put more fiber in front of my hubby that day…It was good enough together that he didn’t even go get a bun to have with his hamburger steak!

A summer staple around many campfires and grills, a gooey, rich chocolate somemore for dessert is also easy in the kitchen. Find some gluten-free graham crackers, some marshmallows and your favorite chocolate — I like semisweet, but milk chocolate or whatever else you might prefer will work, too.
