My favorite thing about this time of year is the smell of a scrumptious pumpkin pie baking in the oven.  Of course, we can’t indulge in this fall delicacy as often as we want to unless we want to look like a stuffed turkey!  I’ve come up with this delicious recipe for low fat, gluten free, Pumpkin Pie Protein ‘Bread’- this recipe is simple to make and cures that craving for fattening pumpkin pie!  Not only is pumpkin itself delicious in this recipe, it packs a nutritional punch as it is full of iron, zinc, fiber and antioxidants!  Bake up some of these easy squares for your next fall gathering!  I like them as a post workout snack to replenish my glycogen stores after a hard training session!  You will ‘fall’ in love with them!
