We have been big fans of the L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites Complete for almost a year now, so when I was offered the chance to review the L’il Critters™ Fiber Gummy Bears, I of course said yes. My 2 1/2 year old was excited right off the bat when I unwrapped the yellow-lidded jar of supplements, calling them her “new gummies”. Lily likes the taste, and requests her “gummies” first thing pretty much every morning. L’il Critters™ is rooted in the belief that healthy habits should be enjoyable, and Lily has demonstrated that these fiber gummy bears fit the bill!

Each serving of L’il Critters™ Fiber Gummy Bears provides 3 grams of fiber (as much fiber as four prunes). The gummy bears are free of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, synthetic (FD&C) dyes, and gluten. The probiotic fiber can help to support the digestive health of your child/children.* The gummy bears come in a trio of fruit flavors that any kid is sure to love, and they are fun to eat unlike some of the chalky tablets or liquid supplements on the market geared towards kids. L’il Critters™ Fiber Gummy Bears are available at club, mass, drug, and grocery stores nationwide including: Costco, Walmart, Target, and Walgreens. We have quickly and enthusiastically incorporated L’il Critters™ into our daily routine; maybe it’s time that you do as well!

Pumpkin Spice Granola Clusters


Although I didn’t quite make it to October before posting my first pumpkin recipe, I at least waited until after the Autumnal Equinox; so there’s that.

My pumpkin obsession has not wavered over the years, and I continue to find myself drawn to anything pumpkin spice as soon as the weather turns crisp & cool. Who’s with me?!


So, these granola clusters: crunchy, slightly sweet, and delightfully flavored with warm fall spices; healthy but tasty enough to satisfy a dessert craving. They’d be fantastic swimming in a bowl of milk or crumbled into yogurt, but Lily and I have been devouring them by the handful straight from the container (actually, the clusters are so big that Lily likes to dunk them into milk, graham cracker-style).

I’ve been all about cereal this pregnancy, and this granola satisfies my craving morning, noon, and night. It’s easy to make, lasts for days if kept in an airtight container, and is so much healthier than most store-bought granolas which are packed with extra sugar. Plus, it’s all big clusters, which – in my opinion – is absolutely the way to go when it comes to granola.

Pumpkin Spice Granola Clusters

by Lauren Zembron (adapted from Maple Almond Granola Clusters)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Keywords: bake breakfast snack gluten-free pumpkin oatmeal fall


  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice (yes, tablespoon… not teaspoon!)
  • 1/3 cup melted and cooled coconut oil (make sure to measure after melting)
  • 1/3 cup pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

both old-fashioned rolled oats and oat flour can be found in certified gluten-free versions


    Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a 9 x 13 inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.

    In a medium bowl, combine coconut oil, pumpkin puree, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract; whisk until well-mixed. Pour mixture over oat mixture and stir until dry mixture is fully and evenly moistened.

    Spread mixture evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Press down so the top is even. A pastry roller comes in handy here, as you want the mixture in as thin & even a layer as possible. The mixture should reach the edges of the baking sheet. The mixture will be sticky, so it can be helpful to lightly wet your fingers or a rubber spatula (if you don’t have a pastry roller) with water before pressing down.

    Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until hard through the center and golden brown, rotating baking sheet about every 15 minutes for even baking.

    Let cool completely, then break into pieces.
