Flourless Pumpkin Pie Muffins

I came across this delicious recipe while participating in a book study at a friend’s house. These addictive muffins are SO healthy and nutritious while avoiding a lot of not-so-good ingredients like white flour and white sugar. And they taste AMAZING!

I mix up a double or triple batch and my hubby eats them for breakfast all week long.


3/4 cups pumpkin puree

1 large egg

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup almond butter

6 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp flax seed or wheat germ

Optional : 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I leave these out)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend all ingredients in a blender, stirring several times as the batter is THICK. Scoop into greased or lined muffin cups (3/4 full) and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan 10 minutes before removing. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze.

What’s Your Back to School Wellness Plan?

It’s August … back to school! Fall is just around the corner, even though it’s still in the 90s here.

So what’s your wellness plan? How will you prevent sickness, and enhance health at home? Keep yourself, your spouse and kids well? I come from a family of 9, so I take wellness seriously! I’m all about maintaining health and living offensively … NOT waiting until I’m sick to do something about it.

Here’s a start! Some of my favorites from our routine…


1. Organic Immune Boosting Elderberry Syrup

1 tsp – 1 tablespoon, once daily for prevention.

1 – 2 tablespoons, 1-2 times daily for sickness.

Safe for kids. This product contains honey, which is not recommended for infants under 1 year.

Local raw honey and organic spices add a delicious taste to this potent elderberry syrup! Plus the innumerable health benefits packed into this tasty concoction make it an essential for every home!

“Sarah’s elderberry syrup is a MUST have in every home. My only regret is not getting it sooner in the season. It’s a tasty immune booster and toddler approved!” – Vanessa

It tastes amazing, especially with a bit of honey added to it, and it’s helping me stave off sickness for as long as possible. I call that a win/win.” – Hannah

3. Organic Wellness Essential Oil Blend

Apply to the bottoms of the feet, and/or the wrists each morning, and at night before bed.

Use caution with small children and those with sensitive skin. This product contains a small amount of “hot” oils (cinnamon, clove) which can cause some skin sensitivity.Not recommended for infants.

Wellness Oil is a powerful blend of Organic, immune-boosting essential oils, designed to fight off bacteria and infection, prevent sickness, and boost the immune system. Use both preventatively, as well as to fight off colds and sickness!

Our Oil blends are packaged in glass roller ball bottles for fast, easy, mess-free application!

“Our family first started using this oil six months ago. We have several children, all of whom are often exposed to people who carry viruses around all through the winter season. We put this oil in our purses, and have applied it frequently to our wrists and necks all season. Every time I apply it, someone nearby says, “Wow, that smells so good!” I have also found that it is soothing to breathe in deeply when applied to my wrists when I feel stressed. No one in our family has had a cold or virus all season, and we are very thankful for this helpful addition to our family’s wellness routine. Thank you, Sarah, for your caring attentiveness to providing high quality organic products to help others stay well! – Sarah B

4. Diffuse or Topically Apply Organic Essential Oils

Diffuse during the day at home, in the office.

Diffuse at night in your bedroom!

Apply topically to your kids before they head to school, and before bed at night!

My home smells lovely. It takes so little effort to diffuse oils during the day or at night … but there are SO MANY health benefits to be had!

Cinnamon, Clove and Eucalyptus are highly antibacterial, germ-fighting, and immune boosting.

Sweet Orange and Lemon (as well as other citrus oils) are cleansing, detoxing, and energizing. A perfect start to your morning.

Peppermint, Frankincense and Rosemary are stimulating to the brain, and promote clarity of thoughts, focus and alertness. Great for kids in school!

One of my favorite combos to diffuse is Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Sweet Orange!

This Essential Oil is WORKING in Place of Toxic SKIN CANCER Treatments

Have you seen those people going through pre-cancerous skin treatment? The ones with puffy red blotches and swollen faces complaining about how much PAIN they are in for several days while the steroid cream does its work …?

Or how about those people with white blotchy heads and skin patches, that previously treated more serious skin cancer… have you seen them too? I care, don’t you!


What if this is the future for more and more people?

What if there were a safe, non-toxic alternative that was pain-free … and worked?


My dad schedules regular checkups with his skin doctor and was advised several years ago to use a steroid treatment cream topically on his head for some cancerous areas. We discovered the POWER of FRANKINCENSE, which is an Essential Oil commonly reputed for its effectiveness in fighting off and even curing skin cancer. As a result, NO TOXIC REMEDIES! He uses his little rollerball of lightly diluted frankincense (in jojoba) on his head each day. It has been several years, and with each checkup his skin doctor is impressed. He does not have to use any steroid creams or toxic remedies AT ALL, as long as he is faithful to roll on his frankincense.

This is not just a cool story. It’s an actual testimony of how powerful plant oils can actually PREVENT and CURE skin cancer in the early stages. I have heard of others who treated more serious skin cancer with Frankincense Oil as well, and consider it a valuable resource even in ADDITION to whatever else you might be using.


If nothing else, what can it hurt to ADD frankincense to your daily routine?

What’s not to try?
