Friday Faves

Friday Faves #11 {Pumpkin Edition}

I knew once I found my first two favorites this week that this would most likely be a pumpkin kind of post. And no doubt, it was pumpkin all around. So I hope you ate already, otherwise you might wind up starving by the time you finish looking over all these posts. I’m pretty sure my family will be sick of pumpkin if I dont slow down on the pumpkin madness, which I don’t plan to do.

Pumpkin Spice Quinoa Breakfast Cookies from Skinnytaste: What makes you the coolest mom in the world? Telling your kids they can cookies for breakfast. And what makes you a happy mom? Knowing that these “cookies” are not only good for you but are pumpkin cookies. It sounds like a total win-win to me. And not only can these be for breakfast, but they can make a pretty awesome snack too. These are going on my baking list soon and I’m pretty sure that 12 will not be enough in my house. 

Pumpkin Protein Fudge from The Fitnessista: So, when you tell me I can have a fudge as post-workout snack, you have just given me a sure-fire motivator to get out the door. I mean, come on, it’s fudge. And if you tell me it’s pumpkin fudge, Ive already changed and am in my running shoes before you finished your sentence. 

Pumpkin Pie Protein Overnight Oats from The Dashing Dish: I LOVE overnight oats. I can prepare it the night before, and not doing anything in the morning, except eat it (and well drink my coffee). It’s perfect for mornings I may be rushed to get out the door, which truthfully doesn’t happen often, so let’s say it’s perfect for lazy mornings. I really love how there’s a bit of protein in this which will be great for workout days. And you know, I already have all of the ingredients, maybe I’ll make this tonight; although I only have chocolate protein. Think it will still be OK?

Pumpkin Spice Latte Protein Smoothie from Carrots N Cake: Do I really need to go into an explanation about this? I mean it’s a pumpkin spice latte and a smoothie and has protein in make it THE perfect post-workout snack. I’m in!!!!

Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies from Budget Bytes: I LOVE oatmeal cookies!! I think they are just fabulous. I don’t have them often which could be a reason I love them that much more, making a very special treat. But these have pumpkin! Yes, please!!! 

Well that about sums up this week’s faves. What are some of your favorite blog posts you have read throughout the week?
