Fall Baking Fail Number 1 – Gluten-Free Baking Can Be Tricky

I love to try making all the fall baking treats.  I still haven’t been able to make a good Pumpkin Bread, so I thought I would try a Pumpkin Bar.  It was definitely a “No”.  Too chewy and oily.

Baking fails happen.  It often feel worse now that I’m using all the different gluten-free flours and dairy alternatives that are more expensive.  But I had plenty of baking fails before we needed to change our diets due to Celiac Disease and food allergies.

It’s a good thing I have Aldi’s new Sea Salt Caramel Dessert Hummus to have with apples instead of the chewy pumpkin bars. Have you tried this seasonal dessert hummus?  It is really good.

I better make some Brownies, since when my kids saw the pan yesterday they thought brownies (it is the only thing the pan is used for) and I had to quickly warn them it was NOT brownies.

I’m back to the pumpkin bar/ pumpkin bread drawing board.  I also have one other dessert I am trialing this week.  I hope it turns out better than my pumpkin bar experiment.
