Ultimate Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

Autumn is on its way! And, with it comes cozy sweaters, haunted houses, and of course, pumpkin-flavored everything. Whether you’re into lattes, tea, pie, or cookies, we’re all a little obsessed when it comes to pumpkin spiced products. Luckily, the trend isn’t going away anytime soon, and neither is our infatuation. So, let’s embrace the spirit of fall and welcome the new season with a host of fresh and tasty pumpkin recipes.

1. Pumpkin Pancakes

While you have the option to make pumpkin pancakes that are either sweet or savory, we recommend the sweet side as it’s more palatable. This pumpkin pancake recipe is a hearty, stick to your ribs kind of breakfast that’s perfect for chilly fall mornings, especially Thanksgiving morning. For a richer pumpkin flavor, use real pumpkin instead of the canned stuff.

This pumpkin muffin recipe is almost identical to Starbucks’ seasonal pumpkin muffins. They’re full of pumpkin flavor and pumpkin spice, and the cream cheese stays soft and creamy while baking. Plus, you can freeze them and take one for a quick and easy breakfast.

3. Pumpkin Bread

You’ve probably made a loaf of banana bread before, but have you ever attempted pumpkin bread? Whether you’re baking a loaf for gift giving or for the family to dig into, this recipe is sure to be a big hit during the holidays. This Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread is moist, spicy, and addicting.

4. Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is a Thanksgiving staple, and we would be remiss not to mention it on our pumpkin recipe roundup. This classic and traditional recipe has a smooth and velvety texture and the perfect blend of spices.  Just one bite and you’ll see why Libby’s Famous pumpkin pie recipe is a winner (certainly around the Thanksgiving table).

While this recipe requires more preparation time, it is worth the work. The Harvest Pumpkin soup is creamy, the texture is thick, and it tastes absolutely delicious. To lighten up this soup, substitute low-sodium chicken broth and use only three tablespoons of heavy cream. At any rate, the family may even ask you to bring it back every year!

6. Chipotle Pumpkin Veggie Burgers

For those experimental types, veggie burgers with a hint of pumpkin are definitely worth trying (at least once). This chipotle pumpkin veggie burger recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and delicious. The flavorful blend calls for ingredients like pumpkin, white bean, bold, smoky chipotle peppers, and a blend of spices. Plus, the avocado smash and chipotle aioli add unbeatable flavor.
