Allow me to preface this post with the fact that the holidays are essentially over and I dragged a$$ posting this so most people are probably tired of pumpkin stuff by now. But in a few months, maybe you will be craving it again and it will be impossible to find pumpkin anything except at Village Inn because I am pretty sure they always have pumpkin pie…

Pumpkin. It’s on everyone’s food brain this time of year. And why not? It’s totally friggin’ delicious. I know some people are feeling inundated by the umpteen commercials advertising pumpkin spice fill-in-the-blank, but some of us really LOVE pumpkin!

Hi, my name is Jess and I am addicted to pumpkin-flavored stuff.
However, I do not care for the calories that generally accompany said pumpkin-flavored stuff. And so I am always on the lookout for pumpkin treats that won’t make me feel eternally guilty for having eaten them.

That said, here is a delicious, protein-and-pumpkin packed treat that takes less than 5 minutes to make.
