like your pumpkin-spice paleo? try these whoopie pies.

funny thing about pumpkin: people either LOOOVE it (like, y'all...#pumpkineverything) - or ew, they hate it. we at fitlosophy tend to fall face first into the first camp, so once fall hits...pumpkin-spice overload is ON. there’s a reason pumpkin is everywhere. obviously, ‘tis the season, but beyond that, is there a more delish way to turn a nutrient-loaded veggie into a delectable dessert?? we think not! after all, these glorious orange orbs are loaded with beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body - great news for anyone who wouldn’t mind having glowing skin, sharp eyesight, and a robust immune system. it’s also a highly effective anti-inflammatory and an excellent source of potassium, helping to prevent chronic illness and keep your muscles + ticker performing their best. so what are you waiting for??

our favorite health(ier) fall indulgence just so happens to be refined-sugar, gluten + dairy-free - not to mention paleo.
you’ve never had pumpkin-spice quite like this!  can we get a woo-hoo for our 
paleo pumpkin spice whoopie pies? try these little perfectly-portioned pumpkin treats on for size.
