Tragedy struck at my house a few days ago: my oven stopped working. Right before Thanksgiving too! Go figure. According to handyman dad, something behind the oven snapped or broke, meaning the whole oven has to be torn out of the wall for it to be fixed. Fun.
It made Thanksgiving this year especially fun too. Fortunately, my house has an in-law suite and I was able to run back and forth between my kitchen and my grandma’s tiny kitchen. So this year, I am thankful for my family, friends, and my gma’s oven
Since the death of my oven, I’ve been turning a lot to no-bake recipes. And since I have some left over pumpkin from Thanksgiving, I’ve been playing with pumpkin-y treats!
No-Bake Pumpkin Cookie Dough Balls (Paleo)

In a bowl, combine pumpkin, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Gradually mix in coconut flour. Add in chocolate chips and/or raisins, if desired. Store in the fridge.
