Easy and Healthy Pumpkin Recipes

I have put together this roundup of several easy and healthy pumpkin recipes for you to try along with me. Not only sweets but great side dishes and breakfast items as well. I cannot wait to try them all!

1. Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These healthy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins from To Simply Inspire look like they would be perfect for breakfast! Plus they’re healthy so you don’t have to worry about too much extra sugar.

2. Healthy Pumpkin Pie

I am not a huge pumpkin pie fan. I much prefer pecan pie, but this healthy pumpkin pie from Flavilicious Fitness is something I can feel good about making for others on Thanksgiving.

3. Low Fat Pumpkin Cheesecake

Speaking of feeling good this Thanksgiving, this low-fat pumpkin cheesecake from Recipe Girl is perfect! It will be hard to eat too much!

4. Pumpkin Sage Soup

The weather outside is starting to get chilly, and what better way to warm up with this delicious, savory, pumpkin sage soup from Skinny Taste! Pumpkin tends to have a sweeter taste, while sage has a more earthy flavor, I think it makes the perfect combination.

5. Pumpkin & Butternut Squash Bake

Southern LIving’s Pumpkin & butternut squash bake is the perfect side dish! It’s rich, starchy, and cheesy, perfect for any dinner. I like to eat it alongside chicken breast or turkey.

6. Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin

Move overstuffed peppers! We have roasted stuffed pumpkin from Super Healthy Kids now! This delicious meal is healthy and has a southwest flair to it with its beans, corn, and cumin.

7. Pumpkin Risotto

Skinny Chef’s Pumpkin Risotto actually calls for butternut squash, but all you have to do is substitute the squash with pumpkin. It’s equally as tasty!

8. Healthy Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

My family LOVES Food’s healthy pumpkin pie oatmeal. They’re all pumpkin pie eaters and since they can’t have pumpkin pie often, this is a great second.

9. Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes

Speaking of great breakfasts… These Skinny Taste’s whole wheat pumpkin pecan pancakes mix pumpkins and pecans to make wonderful breakfast goodness! With a touch of syrup, these are fantastic.

10. Skinny Pumpkin and Cream Bread

I love bread! But who doesn’t? This skinny pumpkin and cream bread from Cooking with Ruthie makes eating bread less of a guilty pleasure.

11. Pumpkin Protein Cookies

These pumpkin protein cookies from Kim’s Cravings are such a good option for those who work out regularly, lift weights, or just need a filling pick-me-up.

12. Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread

Here is another bread recipe. This whole wheat pumpkin bread from 100 Days of Real Food is yet another healthy version of bread that may be more suitable for sandwiches and dinner.
