Pumpkin Bacon & Chive Biscuits (Paleo, Nut-Free)

You might be wondering where I have been the last 9 months… and to answer that in one word, I have been BUSY! There have been a boatload of changes: bought a house, had to buy a new car, started a new full time job while still maintaining two other part time jobs. It’s been a little hectic to say the least. But I am happy to be back and although I haven’t had the time to make many new recipes myself, I wanted to share some that I have enjoyed making and munching on while I’ve been MIA.

These biscuits are brought to you by The Urban Poser whose blog I peruse quite often to find tasty recipes! So without further ado:
