Sunday morning I was like a Tasmanian devil in the kitchen! I had a 28oz can of pumpkin puree that I wanted to use and found 3 recipes that used every last drop. First up was Mama Peas pumpkin spice bars.
The only thing I switched up was subbing macadamia nut oil for the canola oil. I also used a 1/3 cup of dark chocolate chips because I didn’t have some of the icing ingredients.
I had to bake the batch longer than what was called for, but they were worth the wait. I mean, look at the goodness here!
Next was Faith’s pumpkin spice syrup!
My photos do not do it justice. Again, I simmered it longer than suggested because I wanted a thicker syrup.
I promptly made myself a cup of coffee with the syrup and milk. To. Die. For. The last cup of pumpkin went into another one of Faith’s recipes; pumpkin donuts!
Well, mine were “timbits” or “donut holes” because I don’t own a donut tin. I used my mini muffin pan instead and ended up with 40 yummy bites!
I also subbed macadamia nut oil in this recipe (more on that to come!).
And in place of vanilla bean paste for the glaze I used 1 tsp of the pumpkin spice syrup.
DS was shoving these in his mouth faster than I could get the glaze on them! Too bad my hands were sticky or I would’ve taken a picture of him in action! To say these were a big hit would be an understatement. By the time I went to bed Sunday night there were 4 of the 40 left. LOL And here I was thinking to share with the girls at work! Yeah, right. :) Have you baked up any amazing blogger recipes lately? Do share!
FOOD! See the pumpkin spice syrup on the oats? Mmmmm…. **Now that the time has changed I can take breakfast photos in the sun. Unfortunately, by the time we eat dinner its dark so now those pictures are blah. I can’t win!** NEWSFLASH!! I just saw a commercial over the weekend that Tim Horton’s is now selling oatmeal!!! BONUS, especially because I really don’t like much of the “food” that they serve there. But I’m thrilled about the oats. And that there’s a Timmy’s within walking distance of my house and the office! YAY!
