Paleo, GAPS and Grain-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Amazingly yummmy!
Pumpkin Cheesecake bars that you won’t believe are GAPS and SCD legal!

I just couldn’t wait! I couldn’t wait to try a little piece, and I couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you! I have been creating and practicing recipes for a GAPS and Paleo Holiday Recipes e-book I am writing (which will be available on this site very soon!!!) but I just couldn’t wait to share this one. Just look at the photo….

Really, they’re good for you!!! 🙂  See why I just couldn’t wait?!?!  Ok, here’s how I made them:

The day before or at least several hours before, start draining some 24 hour homemade yogurt to get the whey out & make it thicker. I drained mine all day to make a really thick yogurt that’s the texture of cream cheese. If you’re eating cream cheese, use that. 🙂
