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!

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.

  1. My favorite pumpkin recipe is from 101Cookbooks: Roasted Pumpkin Salad. http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/roasted-pumpkin-salad-recipe.html

  2. I love the pumpkin recipes (and pumpkin..it's fav!)! I'll def make some of these, if I can figure out how to vegan-ize them. 😉

    I put together my fav pumpkin posts on my blog, including how to cook a pumpkin to make puree for your freezer! plus, a couple of recipes. Not as healthy as yours tho!

  3. Liz, that sounds like something I'd really like. (Pumpkins and cilantro; how can that be bad?)

  4. Hate when comments are slow to come so it looks like I'm replying to the wrong person. Oh well, you have to laugh, right? Jacki, thanks for sharing!

  5. Great to know I'm in such good company. Outside of purchasing two cute baby pumpkins to sit in my kitchen window sill, I haven't budged about baking with it. The chili sounds great, and nobody has to twist my arm to enjoy a slice of cheesecake ever. Nice list of possibilities 🙂

  6. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie. IT isn't something we grow up with down here. Bryan dislikes pumpkin so it isn't something I cook often. He will it pumpkin soup if I make it Thai style with ginger and coconut milk….and also my pumpkin fruit cake, which I love also. It doesn't keep well so if it isn't eaten the day of baking I cut it into serving size squares and freeze.

  7. Kelly, I guess we are together in our pumpkin apathy this year!

    Barbara, I don't like pumpkin pie much at all, even though it's traditional here. Will have to take a look at the pumpkin fruit cake. Sounds interesting.

  8. I love everything pumpkin. And although the filling of pumpkin pie is my favorite, I have been experimenting with pumpkin cream sauce — which is a totally different and delicious take too. Those muffins look amazing.

  9. Thanks Sarah. I think pumpkin cream sauce sounds interesting!

  10. I have a great recipe for pumpkin-cranberry muffins and pumpkin pie. I would love for you to check out my blog! http://www.lowcarbanddelicious.blogspot.com
    Thanks, Pam.

  11. Pam looks like you have a lot of good low-carb desserts!

  12. I just baked two pumpkin breads this morning, and made a pumpkin black bean chili which I've never tried before. I love the way the pureed pumpkin makes a very rich sauce. Tis the season!

  13. TW, sounds like you're more of a pumpkin fan than I am!

  14. oooh, I really really want to try that pumpkin and apple crumble. What a way to jazz up apple crisp!

  15. Thanks Cara, hope you like it.

  16. great recipe. thanks for sharing 🙂

  17. Never thought of adding it to chili…. I think that's a good choice for this weekend.

  18. Katie, hope you enjoy it!

  19. Do you think in your pumpking bars you could use all almond flour instead of adding whole wheat? Thanks

    • There might be a way to adapt the recipe for only almond flour but since I haven't tried it that way I wouldn't be able to guess how you'd need to change the recipe. You could try searching for a similar recipe on google.

  20. I’m not a huge pumpkin fan, but that chili looks really tempting!
