Healthy Fall Pumpkin Recipes

It’s that time of year again, pumpkin season! [Insert cheers and the clinking of coffee mugs brewing pumpkin spice lattes] If you’re like me, you’ve already stocked up on cans upon cans of pumpkin puree in preparation for the season. Each year I have flashbacks to the tragic year when the pumpkin puree shelves at my local supermarket ran bare mid-season. Now every time I’m grocery shopping, I toss an extra can or two into my cart just for good measure (you can never be too sure). With my shelves fully stocked, fall baking season has begun and it’s time to put pumpkin in everything!
