Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Parfait


You know what… I’m over fall. There, I said it. I need to be in a climate where it is 72 and sunny 364 days a year, with maybe one rainy day to lay in bed and not feel guilty about it. I wish I could be into the idea of scarves and sweaters and jumping in leaves and carving a pumpkin but I’m just… not.

Passionate, however, about granola.

I’m a summer girl. My style is very West Coast, California girl. I like wearing minimal clothing (denim shorties and sheer tanks 4ever). I like warm weather things, like running outside and surfing and drinking wine outdoors. I like being tan. Blame it on my Mediterranean blood but you know what? I am an unabashed, unashamed sun worshiper (I wear SPF though, so give me a break).

You know what I can get behind? Pumpkin because I’m trying to see at night and it’s kind of delicious. Yay, seasonal produce. I’m writing this at 11:30 at night after drinking a glass (or two) of wine… can you tell? Anyway, this dessert/breakfast/snack is ON POINT. Trust me on this one. The one thing I’m always right about is food deliciousness (JK I think kale is delicious and most people probably don’t so I’m not 100% normal).

Do you love fall? Do you hate fall? Are you indifferent about seasons because you live somewhere where there are no seasons?

I like kale and fall so I guess we are 50% similar. I like like parfait, though, so that has to count for something!

Ha, I think it took me numerous blogs to figure that one out. I would just skip it and chalk it up to being out of the loop!

I think ill come live with you in your 72 sunny world. I would like that very much! I have never made a parfait, but this sounds delicious, and it is very fall-y! I do like fall, but it also reminds me of what is coming….which I do not like…..brrrrrrr

Well hot damn, I don’t have protein powder or greek yogurt. Talk about a let down. I suppose i’ll just go cry myself to sleep…. or just daydream that I’m eating it.

Sometimes rainy days are the best, so I would throw in maybe a few extra, but then I’m with you on the weather. Like, Saturday?! Um, when did winter appear! Ridiculous, but hopefully this week it warms up a bit.

I’m with you 100% – I’m SUCH a summer girl. I mean, I like the idea of fall, and it IS pretty, but it only lasts for like 2 weeks in Canada & that makes me sad.

I need to live in a tropical climate year round. And it’ll happen someday. HEY MAYBE WE COULD BE ROOMIES? I’m pretty sure we love & hate all the same things, no?

I think it would work because we do love/hate all the same things! Want to move to Cali?

You’re going to hate me for the fact that I’ve been wishing summer away for weeks and weeks now. I adore fall… I just wish it would last longer up here in Canadaland. As it stands, we get a few good weeks of pretty leaves and warmer weather, and then we brace ourselves for 6 months of winter :lol:

Blasphemy! Fall is where it’s at. I mean, I’m sure one day I’m going to spend a few years soaking up the sun in California (I think it has to be experienced) but I’ll never get over my love of the changing seasons :) I can’t blame you for loving the sun and a constant tan though :)

I’m with you, girl. Fall in the Pac NW means rain. At least winter is a crisp sunny time, with moderate temps usually no lower than the 30’s or 40’s (and after living in Boston and Philly for years, 30’s feel positively balmy!).

[…] I’ve been craving English Muffins like crazy lately. Luckily Arman posted this recipe and it was so wholesome and so good – oh and did I mention, so easy? I made the gluten-free version and topped it with some white cheddar and a runny egg. I recommend making a bunch of these as a way to use some some extra pumpkin! […]

This post made me laugh so hard. Also, I can get behind all of this. As someone who lived the first 18 years of my life in the Caribbean, thinking anything below 20C was freezing, fall and especially winter sucks.
But pumpkin is the bomb

Yep… I always have been, and forever will be, a sun-loving summer girl. Pittsburgh’s climate just doesn’t do it for me. I feel like summer didn’t even happen this year because it never got *that* warm. My desktop background on my work computer is always a picture of the beach; it motivates me to work so that I can make that money and hopefully MOVE someday!
Pumpkin fig granola sounds amazing.
