In my personal opinion, pumpkin season starts a little too early in the blogosphere. In the blogging world, it seems to start around the end of August and go until after Halloween. For most of September, I’m spending my time deciding how to dress for the transitional weather and trying to hang on to summer veggies and vibes. When October comes around, though, give me all the pumpkin spice treats out there!
I have a whole Pinterest board of my favorite pumpkin recipes, most of which are healthy, but a couple of not so healthy recipes have also snuck their way in there…don’t look at me! 😉 It’s a daily struggle to decide which recipe to make, and I’m guessing you feel the same. So I’ve made your lives (and mine) a little easier by rounding up the healthiest pumpkin desserts I could find on my board by some of my favorite bloggers.
You’ll notice that there are two breakfast recipes thrown in here (Kylie’s baked oatmeal and my paleo pumpkin pancakes) but in my humble opinion, breakfast is ok any time of the day. And if you add a little chocolate, then you’ve got yourself dessert. Boom!
The sad thing about this post is that I’ve I’m almost halfway through a three-week self-imposed challenge to remove added refined sugars (as much as a food blogger can) in my diet. I won’t get to indulge in most of these recipes until after October 12th, but when that day comes…it’s on. So keep your fingers crossed for me that I can make it that long.
I’d love to hear what your favorite healthy pumpkin recipes are and let me know if you try any of these!
