FALL into The Pumpkin Frenzy

Fall is by far our favorite season! I plan to spend all day tomorrow redoing the closets, changing our dining table and kitchen appliances and oh… trying something new with pumpkin!

Unfortunately, I can no longer endure products that have either wheat or gluten..lucky me! So I will be doing a lot of experimenting! 🙂

Here are few ideas that I came across:

Pumpkin Raisin Flax Muffins

If pumpkin pie is too sweet for you, try one of thesepumpkin raisin flax muffins. Full of fiber, they also contain B vitamins and omega-3s, which means they can double as a healthy and filling breakfast

Pumpkin Loaf Bread

If the texture of pumpkin pie freaks you out or if sugar isn’t your thing, make a batch of pumpkin loaf bread. This recipe is made with low-fat buttermilk for moisture, dried fruit and honey for sweetness, and uses the nutrient goodness of whole wheat flour.

Homemade Vegan Pumpkin Butter

When you’re just craving the taste of pumpkin but don’t want to overboard with calories, it’s homemade vegan pumpkin butter to the rescue. You can add it to whole wheat toast, oatmeal, pancakes, or just about anything that needs a dollop of pumpkin goodness!

Tofu Pumpkin Pie

The thought of going without pumpkin pie is too depressing, but so are all those calories — this tofu pumpkin pie makes for a lighter offering. It’s rich, creamy, and full of all those spices you’d expect from any pumpkin pie done right!

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

If you crave the taste of pumpkin but are watching your grain intake, try this pumpkin spice smoothie. This healthy frozen treat is the perfect mix of milk shake, ice cream, and frozen yogurt with an extra helping of protein.
