Year Recipe Recap

Hello friends and happy Friday!
I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving.  I know we had some delicious food and have so much to be thankful for this year.

Life has been pretty crazy lately between some travels, getting over bronchitis, pet sitting, getting things settled with the hubs new job & car, making plans for an upcoming market I will be selling my homemade beauty products at, settling travel plans for the holidays, studying, and attempting to get rest and workouts in! And I decided last night to have a small holiday party before all the craziness begins!
I have been doing lots of cooking, but not a whole lot of recipe creation (unless you count my first attempt at stuffing that turned out awesome), so I want to bring back some recipes today from earlier this year!

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for a Free for all themed week!

Spotlight Blog Hop Day- Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Protein Bar

Happy Friday friends!
Welcome to the last weekend in October! Time sure is a-flying!

If you are here for the first from the awesome blog hop, welcome! I’m so glad you decided to stop by!  This is my third blog hop, and I have loved getting to read new blogs and get to know some new bloggers! You can read a little more about me in my previous hop posts here and here, or on my about me page!  Thank you again Kristy at Runaway Bridal Planner for organizing such a great event!

I am heading to the pumpkin patch this morning now the the weather has cooled down a bit.  And by that I mean, the high has only been in the mid 80s vs 90-100+ degrees!
Speaking of pumpkin, I have an abundance of it right now! I apparently had several cans of it in my pantry from a few weeks ago that I forgot about and grabbed a few more on sale last week. With so much pumpkin it gave me a great opportunity to work on my pumpkin protein brownie bar recipe.  I’m not really sure if I would call them a brownie exactly, they are almost a mix between cake and a pie. So I settled on brownie 🙂
This week I had plenty of extra pumpkin to work with for our Foodie Friday theme!
