My Favorite Pumpkin Recipes, and Pumpkin Deliciousness from Other Blogs
It’s October and Thanksgiving is coming soon, so we’re taking a slight detour from Low-Carb Recipe Love this weekend to spotlight my favorite pumpkin recipes! These pumpkin treats are definitely healthier than most of the pumpkin recipe ideas you’ll find around the web, enjoy!
It’s pumpkin season, so today I’m sharing this collection of My Favorite Pumpkin Recipes, and Pumpkin Deliciousness from Other Blogs. For pumpkin lovers who want a treat, my lower-sugar or low-glycemic pumpkin recipes may not be as low in carbs as the things you normally see here on Fridays, but they’re healthier than the usual pumpkin treats that show up everywhere at this time of year! And I have a few savory pumpkin favorites that I’m sharing as well.
I was motivated to post a collection featuring all the pumpkin recipes on Kalyn’s Kitchen a few years ago after I was at the grocery store and a nice woman behind me in line had the most perfect pumpkin I’d ever seen, and it gave me a serious attack of blogger guilt. It was the time of year when It seemed like most food bloggers were going into pumpkin recipe overdrive, and I had been seriously neglectful of recipes using pumpkin!
Since then I’ve gotten on the pumpkin bandwagon a bit more, and as you can see I now have a pretty good collection of healthier recipes using pumpkin. But the truth is, I’m still not the biggest pumpkin fan in the food blogging world! And since I’m not really a big pumpkin fan but I love all of these pumpkin recipes, you know they have to be good. If you’re a bigger pumpkin fan than I am (you know who you are!) be sure to check out the pumpkin recipe links from other blogs after the photos. I’m pretty sure you can find just about any kind of pumpkin recipe your pumpkin-loving heart could desire; enjoy!
Let’s start the pumpkin recipes with the Low-Sugar and Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins with with Pecans shown above. These are tasty and easy to make.
This Low-Sugar (or Sugar-Free) Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake is something I first made in 2006, and I think I’ve made at least once every year since then. And if you’re following Kalyn’s Kitchen on Facebook, I just shared a video for this favorite recipe!
Low-Sugar, Whole Wheat, and Oats Pumpkin Mini-Loaves are a pumpkin treat that’s not too sweet, which gets points from me.
I’m a savory girl more than a sweets eater, so this Crockpot Pumpkin Chili with Ground Beef, Black Beans, and Kidney Beans is my kind of food. This would be a great recipe to put in the crockpot on Halloween and have ready for the kids when they get back from Trick-or-Treating!
Low-Sugar and Whole Wheat Pumpkin Banana Bread is a healthier banana bread that’s also delicious!
In some parts of the world all types of winter squash are called pumpkin, and you can use either butternut squash or pumpkin to make this Low-Sugar Pumpkin and Apple Crumble. I just updated the photos for this favorite pumpkin treat, and this is also a great Thanksgiving dessert for people who don’t like pie.
I think these tasty Low-Sugar Pumpkin Bars would make be a fun idea for breakfast on Halloween morning, or serve them as a less-sweet dessert.
These Low-Sugar and Whole Wheat Pumpkin Almond Cookies use coconut oil for a healthy cookie.
Low-Sugar Spiced Pumpkin Mini Cheesecakes could use a photo make-over, but they are tasty!
If I had to pick only one pumpkin dessert, it would have to be this Low-Sugar Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie that I made in 2009. If Pumpkin Pie and Cheesecake got married had a child, that would be this pie.
And finally, this Paleo Pumpkin Chili with Beef, Peppers, and Olivesis really delicious for a chili without beans.
