Paleo Pumpkin Squares (gluten free, paleo)


We finally got some snow here just in time for Christmas! 

I am not always too fond of the snow (I mean in Canada we get quite a lot and I say this now because we suddenly got more than 40cm or something) but I do like how beautiful it makes the world look!

Possibly my favorite thing about the Holidays though is the amount of baked goods that suddenly come available! Fortunately I am here with a healthy baked good fit for the Holidays.

These pumpkin squares are low carb and refined sugar free. The pumpkin spice flavor is absolutely perfect for this time of year.
