Guest Post: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Maple Cornbread Baked Bean Casserole

Cooking Tool of the Month – Casserole Dish I’ve been a big fan of Amanda’s blog Pickles & Honey for a while, so I was ecstatic when she agreed to do a guest post for casserole month.

I decided to make a healthy version that tastes really good and barely has any oil. These aren’t your typical scones, so don’t expect them to taste like butter and sugar.
