On the paleo diet we’re on, we try not to eat too many sweets but occasionally my son will throw in something sweet that doesn’t use gluten and usually uses honey or pure maple syrup instead of sugar.
Recently he made pumpkin gingerbread cupcakes that had a maple icing. They actually turned out pretty good. The spices remind of the Thanksgiving holidays when we use more cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
We’ll have these again I’m sure as they were quite tasty. The spices used always seem to give me a warm fuzzy feeling inside — like it’s Christmas without it being Christmas.
