Labor Day Weekend really snuck up on me this year! I can't believe it is almost the unofficial end of summer. As ready as I am for fall scented candles and watching my little pup play around in piles of leaves I am looking forward to one last weekend of summertime cookouts with my family and friends. I have never been one to jump on the invitation to bake something to bring to a get together but recently I have stepped up my adulthood game and perfected a signature dish! It has been a hit for my family, friends, and coworkers and is super easy to make. I figured I would share it with you all incase you are in a predicament of having to bring a dish to a party this weekend or just want to treat yo' self a bit while relaxing this weekend!
I decided to stick with something that was not only gluten free so I could enjoy it but also low sodium since my dad limits his sodium intake and I needed to find something that was good for everyone across the board. Now let me tell you... finding something that meets both of those dietary requirements definitely included a lengthy Pinterest search. I finally zeroed in on THIS recipe from Frugal Farm Wife. I took out the nuts to lower the sodium and used all purpose gluten free flour, but those were the only things I changed! It took me overall about 15 minutes to mix everything together and about an hour to bake. It came out looking surprisingly beautiful and even more surprisingly tasty! Everyone thought it was a hit and the leftovers even tasted great reheated. Hands down this was probably the easiest and one of the best tasting desserts I have ever made and I plan on brining it back as my signature dish next summer. Now the challenge... finding my signature dish for fall. Good thing I can just swap out the blueberries with apples, right?! :)
