Looking for new pumpkin snacks and dessert recipes? These simple ideas made with pumpkin are easy to make and yield delicious results.
What better way to welcome the fall season than with pumpkin everything?!
Yes, I too fall into the hype of making and baking everything with pumpkin once the autumn season arrives. I can’t help it, pumpkin is so versatile for all sorts of baked goods and snacks.
It goes in everything from pancakes to waffles, French toast, and pumpkin seed butter for lunches. So good! For dinner, you can also add pumpkin purée in your macaroni and cheese, even chili.
These are all great ideas too for that last ½ to 1 cup of pumpkin pureé you don’t want to go to waste.
But you’re here for snacks, so with no further ado, let’s check those out!
