I can’t even believe that the holidays are almost here! It is crazy how fast 2016 has flown by! I have been so busy sharing breakfast recipes that this tasty dessert recipe almost passed us by! I actually made this Paleo Pumpkin  Gingersnap Cake back in September after I finished my Whole30 and when pumpkin season was in full swing! But, I knew I wanted to save this Paleo Pumpkin Gingersnap Cake for closer to the holidays because gingerbread/gingersnap desserts are one of my holiday favorites!

I remember as a kid always eating the “homemade” boxed version topped with cool whip. Fresh out of the oven, warm and so perfect! I knew when I made my homemade Paleo Pumpkin Gingersnap Cake I wanted to have those some nostalgic feelings, but with a little more health! This cake ended up being spot on! Except it is made with all whole ingredients, packs in tons of fiber and it truly so healthy you could even eat it for breakfast (like me!)
