Hello there fluffy pumpkin scuffin!
Last night I made a date with this Great Harvest Pumpkin Cream Cheese scuffin that Matt [finally!] brought home for me.
I ate about half of him this morning [and they’re bigger than they look] – 1/4 directly into my mouth and 1/4 crumbled on a yogurt bowl 🙂
- 1 container of Oikos
- ~1/3 cup canned pumpkin
- Half banana
- 1 tbsp flax
- ~2 tbsp Mix My Granola
- Drizzle Maranatha AB
Yogurt is so filling! I had to loosen the belt…..on my bathrobe!
For my warm beverage of the day, I tried the second sample pack from San Marco Coffee
I really wish I could say this was awesome, but it kind of made my stomach turn. I’m not a big fan of banana flavoring and wasn’t really thinking about that when I ordered the flavor. And I also found it to be really light – almost like tea. I’ll be sticking with the Grog from here on out.
Good Bite For Charity
The GoodBite + Quaker’s Awaken Your Senses contest second round ends on Friday. Just between us, the KERF "Bridal Sweet" video has 2,000 views – compared to about 300 on the others. I think we have a chance! Normally I wouldn’t pressure for votes, but since this is for $10,000 for hungry children, I think it’s worth a little begging

I’ve got some stuff to do, including yoga and a run, and we have a real estate agent coming over at 1PM to give us some advice on the timing of putting our house on the market.
Currently sipping a new cup of coffee, which isn’t good either. I think I’ve lost my taste or something!
Jessica @ How Sweet It Is says
OMG that pumpkin creation looks INCREDIBLE!!!
That pumpkin scone looks great Kath! I hope you win and make the semi-finals. My video goes up tomorrow. I would love to make it to the semis as well!
Madeline @ Greens and Jeans says
I always think that I am going to like flavored coffee, and I never do, regardless of the flavor. I have lost many a bag of coffee this way! Good luck with the real estate agent!
Estela @ Weekly Bite says
Oh my goodness! I am really loving all these pumpkin scones I’m seeing around!
Have a great day 🙂
OMG…now I’m totally craving the pumpkin bread I have in my kitchen!
Good luck with the Realtor! 🙂

mmm pumpkin + cream cheese sounds heavenly
Mara @ What's For Dinner? says
Im heading to a GH over the weekend, and I can’t wait to pick up scuffins!
We need a Great Harvest in Boston!
I’m heading over to vote for you!
Nicole (dishin') says
Yum! I’d love a scuffin right now! I made pumpkin bread the other night, I can’t get enough!
I wish we had a Great Harvest nearby…
Your scuffin looks delicious – I wish I had one with my breakfast this morning!
Chelsea (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) says
Good luck with the Real Estate agent! Selling a home in this market may seem daunting, but my cousin recently had surprising success. It is doable! Also, excited to read about your future food adventures in your new location!
Shannon (The Daily Balance) says
love that scuffin!!
Good luck with the real estate agent!
Oooh, pumkin scone looks amazing, especially in a yogurt mess!
Good luck with figuring out house stuff, I’m in that process too!
Once you guys open up in Charlottesville, I’m going to have to visit JUST to get some of these scuffins. They all look amazing!
hope the house meeting goes well!
hahah…”on my bathrobe!” I love it 🙂
Have a wonderful Thursday! Almost TGIF!!!
Ahh, a pumpkin scuffin sounds delicious! Good luck with all the house stuff and a belated congrats on the bakery 🙂
christie, honoring health says
mmm..that scuffin looks awesome.
Good luck with the agent!

I’m off to vote again!!
I’ve never heard of a scuffin, but I like the concept.
Banana flavored things are never as great as an actual banana – I’m always disappointed in them!
pumpkin cream cheese scruffin sounds amazing. just voted!
“Scuffin” makes me smile 🙂
Paige(Running Around Normal) says
I was wondering when you said banana’s foster coffee. Doesn’t really scream coffee to me! I need to find some quality coffee, though. We have a grinder, but I rarely use it!
Funky Lady says
Kath~ I posted yesterday and you suggested I look at my sleep/carbs. I do sleep about 7 hours per night. Any more, and I’d have to give my 1 hour of TV each night! 🙁 I do eat tons of whole grains. I am going to try more wg’s in my afternoon snack and see if I feel better. Thanks for responding.
I love “The Grog” in my French Press. It’s distributed by Boston Stoker in my area! Enjoy!
One last thing (I am not suggesting anything…it’s just funny). I lost my taste for coffee three years ago…just could not drink a cup to save my life. Turned out I was preggers! 🙂
Too bad about the coffee. I suspect banana + coffee don’t mix too well either.
Yay for pumpkin cream cheese anything!
Voted. Hope you (well, I guess we) win!
Your breakfast looks like yum.
I just went for a run around Freedom park, I think I was the only one out there!! Hope you have a good run! And yoga too 🙂 Mmmm pumpkin muffin scuffin sounds yummy! And its fun to say too, haha 😀
Oh that scuffin looks so good, must try and re-create it immediately!
Good luck with the real estate agent, hopefully they will have some good advice for you in this market. Luckily it sounds like you have the luxury of a little time to figure it out.

Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers says
ooooh scuffin how i love you (even though i’ve never even heard of you until now). looks very tasty! enjoy your run & yogaaa.
Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats says
Awww scuffins! I haven’t seen those on your blog in so long! Looks delish 🙂
oooh i love banana flavored anything but hate light, watery coffee.
good luck with the real estate agent meeting!
That pumpkin scuffin looks incredible! I think it’s awesome that you totally owned up to having to loosen your belt after a yummy breakfast. 🙂
Marisa (Trim The Fat) says
Yummy pumpkin scuffin! Wish I had a Great Harvest near me – wink wink 🙂 I know, you can only conquer one city at a time!
Good luck with the real estate agent! So exciting:)
Janna (Just Flourishing) says
That scuffin looks delicious!
I voted for you Kath! Good Luck!
Yummy looking breakfast as always 🙂
Mama Pea says
Okay, your first task as a new GH prospective owner is to find out why the heck we don’t have scuffins here. Scones, yes. Muffins, yes. Scuffins? I might as well try to find Lady Gaga’s pants.
I just submitted a vote for you! Good luck 🙂
Abby (Abbys Vegan Eats) says
LOVING your bowl.. so cute! 🙂
Ali @ Food, Fitness, Fashion says
Good Luck!!! I love all the different coffee’s you always have! I love coffee so much! Pumpkin scones look amazing!
Emily (Emily Eats and Exercises) says
I love the idea of a scuffin! Best of both worlds…
I don’t drink coffee but I would generally agree that I don’t like banana flavoring. I love bananas, but the flavoring always reminds me of medicine.
I still haven’t tried the GH by my work! Need to it it up.
And love the good cause – good luck Kath!
The scuffin looks amazing! I was just curious how you chose your real estate agent?
Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries says
pumpkin cream cheese might be one of theeee best flavor combos!
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
holy cow what a brekkie.
Julia (Taste of Living) says
That muffin looks so good!
Just wanna congratulate you and your hubby with the new bakery plans! I’m really, really happy for you! And I’m a big bread lover, so if I ever come to the US and nearby I will visit!

Cynthia (It All Changes) says
I’ve had to loosen my belt when eating hummus before. It’s all the fiber that does a number on my insides.
I totally just voted up your Bridal Sweet!
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
My goodness that scuffin sounds amazing! Sorry it didn’t live up to expectations, but it sure looks nice in your delicious yogurt bowl. 🙂
I voted =D Wow were those videos ever cheesy!!! $10,000 is fabulous though!!!
love yogurt in the AM 🙂
Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now says
Voted! Love contests with a good cause.
Food Makes Fun Fuel says
That scuffin looks adorable and sounds amazing!
Laura @ Backstage Pass to Health & Happiness says
Hey – congrats on the Food Buzz Bertolli award! Very exciting!
Hallie (Healthy Twists) says
Ha, I have to do that (loosen the bathrobe belt) when I have a hearty bowl of oatmeal in the morning. Not so much with the yogurt though…maybe becaue I don’t add nut butter to my yogurt messes (I don’t like the consistency of the combo, so I just throw in some flax for healthy fat and call it a day)
Beth @ DiningAndDishing says
mmm, i haven’t had a good yogurt bowl in a while. i had forgotten all about pumpkin yogurt! such a good fall breakfast :O)
Joelle (The Pancake Girl) says
I always pack my yogurt messes too..and what is a scuffin? Such a cute word, and if it’s pumpkin I’m sure it’s great.
Hey do I remember correctly and you LOVE Harrris Teeter pb?? I went out and bought one since they opened a store here but I saw the FHVO fully hydrogeneated oils. It did not taste much different from other pb’s so I wanted to check and see again. Thanks!!
Hot off the press – Congrats on winning the Bertolli recipe competition for foodbuzz!
That scone looks awesome! Congrats on being one of the Bertolli challenge winners 🙂
Tisk, tisk – bump that 7 to 8 and see what happens!
Request them!! Tell them to “check the bread board for the recipes.”
We’re using the one who sold us our house. Otherwise, ask friends for recommendations.
If HT was my favorite, that was ages ago!! The PB that I bought did not have trans-fats – it was just peanuts and salt. I’m not sure which kind you got??
Kath! Are you getting sick? Two bad cups of coffee is not like you. Oh no!
Ohh I hope your video wins!
Courtney Lee says
Oh dear lord anything with pumpkin is automatically my favorite!! I can never resist the beckon of Libby’s Canned Pure Pumpkin…do much that my poor palms are orange!! o_O My mom has officially “banned” me from consuming pumpkin lol
