Pumpkin Recipe Ideas

Now that the pumpkin drought seems to be over, I've noticed that the searches for pumpkin recipes are spiking on the blog. I thought I would do a round-up of some of my favorite pumpkin recipes. No pumpkin pie for me because I think it's disgusting, but here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy this fall treat.

The number one search by far has been pumpkin oatmeal. It's a great way to enjoy pumpkin every day if you're an oatmeal person and can be changed up a bunch of ways.

I think my personal all time favorite are these pumpkin cinnamon rolls. They're so indulgent and totally worth it!

Pumpkin shortcakes with apple compote look like an elegant dessert, but couldn't be easier to make. It's a great way to wow your guests at a dinner party.

Last year for Eat My Blog I made pumpkin swirl brownies. They seemed to go quickly. Maybe I should make them again this year...

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

The first time I realized I enjoyed pumpkin was in junior high after trying my friend's mom's pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. These aren't quite the same, but definitely brought back pleasant memories.

Not all pumpkin recipes have to be dessert. Here's a great savory way to enjoy pumpkin in the form of pumpkin gnocchi. Of course semi-healthy whole wheat pumpkin gnocchi get doused in sage butter, but you know...all in moderation.

I hope this round-up has inspired you to go pick up several cans of pumpkin and try some of these recipes. Happy pumpkin season!
