Fall is here so it’s time for my favorite vegetable… PUMPKIN! I can’t get enough of it. It’s not only super healthy, it’s also so versatile. You can add it to your oatmeal, cakes, soups, curries or you can just roast them in the oven! I love how creamy and sweet this veggie is… Perfect to add to one of my favorite snacks… Bananabread! This is definitely a winner! In cooperation with de Notenshop I created this recipe and it’s definitely one of my favorites now.
