Fall Is Here: Time To Pumpkin Everything

Even though it’s still going to be 100 degrees here in Phoenix this week (thanks, weather), it’s fall. It’s undeniable. Not because of the temperatures or the changing leaves that we don’t have – it’s the introduction of pumpkin everything. And yes, that includes everything gluten-free. We are not immune to the pumpkin takeover when the first fall leaf hits the ground. Here’s my round-up of my top fall pumpkin gluten-free (and dairy-free) picks!

Dandies Pumpkin Marshmallows

Dandies Pumpkin Marshmallows

For my vegan/gluten-free brethren, Dandies is where it’s at for marshmallows. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when I learned that Dandies made a pumpkin marshmallow! The nice folks at Chicago Vegan Foods sent me some to try out for the magazine. These will be super fun to bake with, and I love putting them in my morning coffee. Contains soy.

Puffins Pumpkin Cereal

Barbara's Pumpkin Puffins

Yeah, it’s a little strange eating bright orange cereal, but these are pretty great. I actually prefer them without any milk, just as a snack. This is one of two current gluten-free Puffins cereals from Barbara’s. I like the Honey Rice Puffins, but this is a great addition only for the holidays. Made with real pumpkin!

Simple Mills is a cool, smaller brand that makes almond flour boxed mixes. With only five grams of sugar and four grams of protein, you can’t feel guilty about eating a whole pan of these. Not that I did that – yet.

Available at Thrive Market (affiliate link).

Yes, you need this in your life. It pairs best with whiskey or drinking it straight out of the carton! A must-have for pumpkin-anything lovers. Learn more on the So Delicious website.

Namaste Organic Pumpkin Baking Mix

So Delicious Candy Corn Bars

Okay, this one is a bit of a strech because I really have no idea the flavors that Candy Corn is supposed to be, but there’s an orange stripe in this and I’m just going to say that it’s pumpkin even though I don’t know what it really is.

I LOVE these bars and wish they were available all year long, although I’d be a little weird since Candy Corn is so seasonal. Stock up on these when you find them.

    Oh my goodness. I hope I can find those So Delicious Candy Corn ice cream bars in the Portland area because I *need* them.

    It’s not a spice but this time of year they have the organic canned pumpkin at Traders Joes. We buy 3 cases of it and hoard it throughout the rest of the year.

    I am so jealous! I used to live in Phoenix and was spoiled by the tons of GF foods available to me there. Not to mention the best Thai place I know! But you get the Puffins in pumpkin? Drooling….
