5 Fave Healthy Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

Reading Time: 3 minutes

There’s nothing that screams “Halloween” and autumn more than pumpkin. We’ve rounded up 5 of our favorite healthy pumpkin recipes that feature pumpkin puree, pumpkin seeds, and/or pumpkin spice.

Recipe #1: DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice

Fall is definitely pumpkin spice time! While lots of stores sell pumpkin spice (aka pumpkin pie spice) ready-made, it’s super simple to make your own from spices you may already have on hand.

What is in Pumpkin Pie Spice?

Pumpkin spice is generally a combination of:

Some recipes you’ll find online exclude the clove and/or the allspice, so it’s really all a matter of personal preference. The good thing is a spice blend is pretty hard to mess up. Just remember that nutmeg, clove, and allspice all have very intense flavors. If you find your blend too strong, simply add in more cinnamon to tone down the intensity. Below is an easy pumpkin pie spice recipe we like.

TIP: To preserve the freshness and maximize the health potential of all your spices, keep them in sealed glass jars away from heat and light. When cooking with dried herbs & spices, never add them by holding your spice bottle above a steaming pot. The steam will condense inside the spice jar and grow mold or otherwise break down the herb or spice. Instead, measure your spices away from the steam into your hand or a small bowl and THEN add to your dish.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Serving Ideas:

Pumpkin spice not only tastes great sprinkled on coffee or in smoothies, but it can also usually replace plain cinnamon in baking. It goes particularly well with any recipe that features fall fruits and veggies including pumpkin, squash, sweet potato, apple, and pear.

Pumpkin Puree Recipes

Instead of throwing out your real pumpkins after Halloween, why not go the extra step and turn them into pumpkin puree that can be used to make to make delicious recipes all winter long.

Pumpkin cubes can be frozen for later use OR turned into a puree now which can be frozen and defrosted to use in soup, oatmeal, baked goods… and even your own healthy pumpkin latte or pudding (see recipes below).

We don’t have a video on how to make pumpkin puree, but there are plenty of instructions available on the internet. Essentially it’s just a matter of cutting up and roasting the pumpkin and pureeing the roasted pumpkin flesh.

Alternatively, you can pick up a can of organic pumpkin puree at the grocery store to use in the following two recipes. Just be sure to get pure pumpkin (one ingredient) and not canned pumpkin pie mixture which contains sugar and other ingredients.

Pumpkin Seeds

When you were carving your Jack O’Lantern we hope you saved the seeds and made your own roasted pumpkin seeds. If not, pick up a package of organic pumpkin seeds (often called pepitas) at your local grocery store and use them in the recipes below.

Recipe #4: Antioxidant Blast Breakfast Bowl
