Thumbnail for 10115
These paleo pumpkin muffins are topped with pecan streusel and have a great texture! With a video. I know I just posted some vegan pumpkin muffins last week, but those have no grain-free option – just whole wheat and gluten-free – so I felt compelled to post a paleo pumpkin muffin recipe, too! By the way, I’m guessing today’s reci [...]

This Jewish Apple Cake is a wonderfully dense and moist cake batter studded with tons of cinnamon-sugar coated apples. It’s the perfect fall dessert for any occasion!
