pumpkin recipes

I know this is my third pumpkin themed post in a row, but I promise I'm not obsessed with pumpkins.  I'm just so excited about fall, It's my fav season!

I have a couple of tasty pumpkin recipes to share! One is healthy, and the other not so much!

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Oat Parfait 
This healthy treat is a combination of two recipes:
Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Breakfast Bowl from Peanut Butter Fingers
Pumpkin Delight Vegan Overnight Oat Parfait from Oh She Glows 

For the pumpkin pie cheesecake layer I blended the following ingredients in a food processor:
-3/4 cup cottage cheese
-1/2 cup canned pumpkin
-1/2 frozen banana
-1 T. pumpkin pie spice
-3 T. almond milk

For the other layer I just used cinnamon instant oatmeal, and then sprinkled a little nutmeg on the top.

It's a nice combo of hot and cold.  So yummy and guilt free!

Now for the not so healthy dessert:

Pumpkin Pie Bars
This is a Martha Stewart recipe that is a must try.  Trust me, you will love these even if you don't like pumpkin pie (just ask my husband).

The only thing I changed about the recipe was that I used white chocolate chips.

This will be a fall tradition from now on.


  1. These sound great:) I love pumpkin treats:) My daughter and I make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin cheesecake every year with the pumpkin that we pick from the patch:)
