Waking up to this chocolate chip pumpkin breakfast cake and a hot cup of coffee will give you an automatic happy belly and a great day!
Happy Friday! I am currently on my way to Seattle with the sister. I get to be her date to one of her best friend’s weddings. SCORE. We’ve got an amazing weekend of hiking and wedding shenanigans planned. I’ve been to Mt. Rainier, but it was a brief trip so I am excited to explore a bit more! We’re going to do a day in the city, too, which I have never done!
I’ll of course be taking you along via Snapchat…so make sure you are following FitFoodieFinds!
Anyways, let’s talk pumpkin breakfast cake. You guys LOVED the Banana Breakfast Cake SO MUCH that I decided to get festive and make a fall version.
So dense…and so delicious!
It’s made with 100% whole grains, no refined sugar, and a lotta love. It’s sweetened with banana and maple syrup…the perfect fall flavor combination.
Get super fancy and top your slice with some homemade cream cheese frosting (3.5 oz cream cheese + 3 tablespoons maple syrup) and then a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds for crunch.
