What do pumpkin recipes have in common with sports? Not much except they both combine to make fall my favorite season. What’s not to love? Football has started, baseball is entering the post-season, and pumpkin-flavored everything is everywhere!
Unfortunately, most of the pumpkin fare offered by restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops is pumped full of sugar. Pumpkin by itself is relatively healthy. According to the site where I snagged one of my recipes,
Pumpkin is known for being high in fiber and low in sugar, but still giving lots of flavor. 1/2 a cup of pumpkin is only 40 calories and 9 carbs, 5 of which are fiberous which leaves you only 4 net carbs!
So, this fall I’ve been on a mission to find pumpkin recipes I can enjoy guilt-free. Since I know many of my friends and followers love pumpkin as much as me, I wanted to share the recipes that have worked out for me.
