Okay, Okay… you can go ahead and call me a “Basic Bitch,” if you want, I will fully take the title! The leaves may not be falling over here just yet, but soon as the first leaf drops you know I am pulling out my furry UGGs, and sipping on my skinny pumpkin spiced lattes.

September is always my favorite time of year, it’s full of change and new beginnings. The back to school sales are always the best, sweaters and knit hats are finally back in stores, and here in Idaho the weather starts to cool down. Pumpkin Spice Protein Waffle 3

It is so hard not to get suckered into the amazing treats pumpkin treats so that’s why I have been hard at work in the kitchen to come up with some new ways to make these treats a lot healthier, taste approved, and adjustable for macro counters.
