Pumpkin Pie Cheerios Bars | CreativeCainCabin.comFall is finding it’s way up on us and I’m in the mood for some recipes that remind me of fall. Our days are getting shorter here and you can feel and smell the difference in the air. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love to make things that include pumpkins, squash, and hearty stews. Today I want to share with you a recipe that tastes just like pumpkin pie, and the secret is in the crust. I’m using Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Cheerios™. 

Pumpkin Pie Cheerios Bars | CreativeCainCabin.comIf you remember I have several food intolerances that have cropped up with age and gluten is on the list of no-no’s for me, as well as several other things. I’ve found eating a restricted diet hard at times but after 6 months of being very strict I’m no longer itching and have lost over 30 pounds. That’s a huge bonus right there, right?

Pumpkin Pie Cheerios Bars | CreativeCainCabin.comGeneral Mills has removed gluten from Cheerios so that those of us with intolerances or Celiac disease can enjoy Cheerios, too. General Mills also only wants what matters to go into its product, and by removing stray wheat, rye and barley, it is delivering a more pure version of Cheerios. You can find Gluten-Free Cheerios by looking for the Gluten-Free seal on packaging. It is beginning to appear in stores now, but will be almost fully available in September.
