I don’t know about you, but when fall nears, I start to crave anything, and everything pumpkin. There are so many ways to get your pumpkin fix.
* This post is an on-going list of my recipes featuring pumpkin. I will be editing this post frequently with new healthy pumpkin recipes! So remember to bookmark it! *
These waffles are great to prep ahead of time for an easy breakfast. Freeze them and re-heat by popping in the toaster!
Making granola in a skillet couldn’t be easier! This granola is done in 15 minutes and great to eat as is, or as a topping over yogurt.
Pumpkin and gingerbread come together in one muffin. This are moist and flavorful and definitely are the best of both flavors.
One of my favorite fall muffin recipes. The combination of pumpkin orange and raisins is warming and delicious. Perfect with a cup of tea!
I love a good rich and fudgy brownie. These fit the bill and also contain a hefty amount of pumpkin. You don’t taste much pumpkin at all, its just a rich and delicious brownie.
This is a wonderful pumpkin spiced snack bread. Perfect to make ahead for breakfast or snacks on the go!
A seasonal take on french toast, plus its gluten-free! Super yummy!
This an amazing version of a healthier cheesecake! Made with greek yogurt instead of cream cheese.
Packed with protein, these pancakes are perfect for after a workout. Kids love them too.
A quick and easy treat that your little trick-or-treaters will really enjoy.
The easiest pumpkin soup you’ll ever make. Great way to use leftover pumpkin, or crack open a new can for!
Technically, these don’t have any actual pumpkin in them. But they do have pumpkin pie spice, so I had to include them. One of my best protein bar recipes to date. I’ve been making these on a weekly basis this fall!
A sinfully delicious, yet healthy muffin. These muffins are amazing with or without icing. Only 56 calories each!
A traditional Pumpkin Scone from Starbucks has 480 calories, 17 g fat, 78 g of carbs, 43 g of sugar and 6 g protein. Mine has half the calories (or more if you skip the icing), half the fat, 1/3 of the carbs and 84% less sugar!
You may have already tried the Greek Pumpkin Yogurt from Trader Joe’s. While its tasty, I didn’t like how it contained 23 grams of sugar per serving. So it was my mission to come up with a healthier duplicate. Mission accomplished.
If you’re looking for a great tasting pumpkin bar complete with cream cheese icing…this is it! It is also without all the heavy oils and processed flour.
These sticky & sweet no-bake cookies would fix any pumpkin (and chocolate chip) craving. Added protein makes them a great post-workout snack.
These are equally delicious as donuts or cupcakes (if you don’t have a donut pan)
A bake-able pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. These are made with a gluten free flour blend.
Pumpkin cheesecake is an incredible thing. In my opinion its even better combined with chocolate, and made bite-sized.
These soft and chewy cookies would please anyone’s taste. Probably my favorite pumpkin cookie recipe to-date.
This is a perfect pumpkin bread that is so delicious on its own, or with a touch of butter spread on it.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins were featured on Shape.com.

This is a really quick dessert that you can put together in no time flat! I’ve served this for Thanksgiving before and it was a total hit. Think Pumpkin Cheesecake, but without all the fat and calories!
These are a hit any time of year! The bars were featured for my October Recipe Column!
This is the lowest calorie Pumpkin Pie you will ever have. Each slice is only 40 calories! Yep, 40…that’s not a typo!
These actually make a fabulous no-bake cookie as well (I actually prefer them that way). Just nix the baking powder and soda and refrigerate the dough in balls. Perfect mouth-popping size!
These are super hearty muffins, thanks to the yam and squash. They are really moist too…no dryness muffin here!
My fitness friend (www.jillfit.com) allowed me to re-post her delicious and low carb pumpkin scone recipe! No guilt with these!
This shake is so addicting. There have been times I’ve had it everyday for a week! I think its that time again.
These really yummy bite-sized cookies are great snacks for kids. They will never guess there is a ‘secret’ ingredient (beans!). You can’t taste it, and it actually makes them a really moist cookie.
I describe these as a “mookie”. Cross between a muffin and a cookie. Gluten-free pancake mix makes this a super easy recipe. They aren’t my favorite, but they are ok if you need a quick pumpkin fix!
These are great bars to serve at your next coffee get-together. They are sweet and hearty, and go great with a cup of coffee or tea. Added protein makes them a great snack!
Guilt-free fudge? It sure is! This super easy freezer fudge fills the craving for a nice sweet fudge.
