Here are 10 amazing pumpkin recipes for you to try or pass on or add to your collection of fall recipes. They all sound extremely tasty to me! I hope you enjoy trying them out because I sure liked finding them all.
Pumpkin Bread – MomPrepares
Pumpkin bread is a fall favorite in my house. I love making a bunch of mini loaves and having some softened cream cheese on hand to spread on top of them. Delicious! I like the optional additions mentioned at the end of this recipe as well.
Candy Corn Smoothie with Pumpkin – MomPrepares
If you aren’t fond of candy, then don’t let the name of this smoothie frighten you away. There really aren’t any candy corns crushed up in this treat. It’s a wonderful blend of cloves, ginger, cinnamon, almond milk, pumpkin, and some caramel syrup.
Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie – MomPrepares
I love being able to use my crockpot as much as possible. The more recipes I can find, the better! I also adore pumpkin pie, but was never very thrilled with the crust. It always seemed to be too dry. I think this crockpot recipe for pumpkin pie might be just what I’ve been looking for! I really like the idea of using nuts for the crust, instead of white flour too. Sounds delicious!
Pumpkin Chili – Kalyn’s Kitchen
I have so many chili recipes already, but this is one I’ll definitely add to my collection. Make sure you use pumpkin puree with this recipe and not pumpkin pie filling!
Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles – The Spiffy Cookie
Waffles were always a weekend treat in my home when the kids had company over. It was a great way to make sure everyone was fed a healthy breakfast in a short amount of time. This recipe includes whole wheat, which is a healthier alternative to white flour. As a child, my grandmother would always save the leftover waffles for us to have with ice cream after dinner. I think pumpkin waffles with ice cream would be a lovely after-dinner treat.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites – Eat Live Run
I have to say, cheesecake might be my number one weakness, when it comes to desserts. I love cheesecake in all flavors. I like the idea of making this into bite-sized pieces as well. It seems like it might go much further, especially at a family gathering during the holidays.
Pumpkin Apple Harvest Rice – Lunch Box Bunch
Apples, walnuts, and pumpkin sound like an excellent addition to any rice dish and this recipe combines them all perfectly. The addition of raisins and maple syrup help as well! This would be an excellent side dish or even served as a main course.
Roasted Pumpkin Soup – Martha Stewart
If you don’t happen to have a pumpkin on hand, you can also use this recipe with butternut squash. Remember you have to roast the pumpkin in the oven before you can make it into soup. This recipe sounds like it’d go great with most entrees.
Pumpkin Seed Flat Bread – Taste of Home
In case you are looking for something to do with your leftover pumpkin seeds, why not give this recipe a try? Flat bread is an excellent addition to many of the recipes mentioned above. If you don’t have pre-roasted pumpkin seeds, you can always roast your own.
Mac and Cheese with Pumpkin – Better Homes & Gardens
I bet you never thought of putting pumpkin in mac and cheese. I sure never did! I’m excited to try this one out at the next family gathering.
