Healthy Pumpkin Cake with Butterscotch Frosting

Do you believe me when I say that this cake is actually healthy?  Well, you should, because it is!

This healthy Pumpkin Cake with a special Butterscotch Frosting is whole grain, refined sugar free and contains ZERO butter (I think Paula Deen just shuttered there for a moment).  This cake may be good for you, but trust me, you’d never know it.

See that wonderful texture?  The fork just sinks right through.

This cake is soft and moist, you’d never guess that it’s made without a copious amount of butter and oil.  The entire recipe only calls for one tablespoon of oil!

The cake and frosting together are sweet and packed with flavor, you’d never know that the slice in front of you is refined sugar free and all natural.

This cake is unbelievably delicious, everyone who tried it loved it (especially the frosting, my friend and I ate the extra bit leftover straight out of the mixing bowl…  don’t judge us, you will too)

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again — I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin… Did I just hear you gasp?? Well, it’s true.  I can tolerate it but it’s just not my favorite flavor, I would take vanilla and chocolate any day over pumpkin!  Sadly, I’m pretty much alone on this one […]


I just made a batch of my Homemade Caramel Sauce the other day and for some strange reason I don’t know what to do with it!  I drizzle some into my coffee each morning but I still have so much leftover.  I have never encountered this problem with the last seven batches (yes, seven) so I […]


Experiment #1:  SPRITZ COOKIES! What just popped into your head when I typed shouted that?  I don’t know about you, but the first thing that came to my mind was butter.  Then sugar.  And then refined white flour and “unhealthy” and toootally not nutritious. Experiment #2:  HEALTHY SPRITZ COOKIES! So what came to your mind this time?  Personally, my mind kind […]


Limoncello (pronounced: lee-mohn-cheh-loh) is an Italian lemon liqueur that is served chilled, often as a palate cleanser or an after-dinner drink.  However, did you know that most storebought versions aren’t 100% natural?  I know, it’s terrible, right?  Because Limoncello is pretty much the best-tasting liqueur out there, but it oftentimes contains artificial food coloring, a TON of refined […]


Gingersnaps have been on my Recipe Wishlist for quite a few months now and I finally made a successful batch just last week.  Yay!  *does (an embarrassing) happy dance* These healthy chewy Gingersnaps are soft, moist and sweet.  They are full of flavorful spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger, but are made without all the […]


These aren’t really like the fortune cookies you’d get at a Chinese restaurant.  These are actually good tasting and good for you.  And they are also completely different in both taste and texture.  Sorry, I tried to make it as close to the original as possible — crunchy, orange and both sweet and salty — […]


Wait,  WHAT?  Healthy chocolate cupcakes…  with a healthy peanut butter filling…  and a healthy  chocolate peanut butter frosting? That’s like a Reese’s peanut butter cup turned into a cupcake! And it is, because Reese’s were the inspiration.  But there is something very different about my cupcakes and Reese’s, and the difference is that my cupcakes […]


Like everyone already knows, Halloween is 9 days away.  Don’t get anxious over all those sugary, artificial candies coming your way because I have made all of the best candy bars healthy, totally guilt free and from scratch.  So far I have made Snikkers, Milkky Ways, Take-5s, Reesee’s and Yorkk Peppermint Patties (please pardon the spelling, […]


Don’t forget your baking powder, you will make silly kitchen mistakes. When you make silly kitchen mistakes, you will make super dense and unpleasant cakes. When you make super dense and unpleasant cakes, you will get angry. When you get angry, you swear off baking forever. Don’t swear off baking forever and remember your baking […]


You know those Caramel Nut Brownie Luna Bars?  Well, I used to buy those on a daily basis when I was a freshman in university.  They were easy to grab out the door to class and they were especially easy to eat…  they are so damn addicting!  Oh, what sugar will do to you (and sugar […]


I don’t think the words “healthy” and “churros” have ever gone into the same sentence before today, but alas my fellow health-seeking friends…  healthy homemade churros finally exist! (and no deep fryer or gallon of oil needed) These churros aren’t made with processed and bleached white flour, they are 100% whole grain (and gluten free […]
