Pumpkin Round-Up Recipes… and a little break!
Life just got a little busy with me over the past two weeks when I realized that I haven’t posted anything lately. I thought doing a round-up of all of my past favorite pumpkin recipes would score me some extra points with my readers for my absence :) So here you go!
Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes - this pancake base became my go-to pancake recipe. I used white whole wheat on this picture below, but I have made this with 100 % whole wheat flour and they are absolutely fantastic. I use this recipe all year with whatever fillings I want (banana, blueberry, or pumpkin are my favorite).
Pumpkin Nut Belgian Waffles - this is another waffle recipe that makes gorgeous Belgian waffles: thick, crispy on the outside, and tender in the outside. And the addition of pumpkin and pecans/walnuts make these a winning breakfast, brunch, or even snack item.
Pumpkin Bars - this moist cake-like bar was an instant favorite among my friends and co-workers. Especially with that extra thick layer of tangy cream cheese frosting. If you are willing to skip the frosting, it would be a delightful breakfast treat!
Pumpkin Brown-Butter Cupcakes - This was probably my first introduction to brown butter. I welcomed the nuttiness that browning butter adds to a recipe like this, and I became a huge fan of it. I made these without sage as the original recipe called for, but I think next time, I’d probably throw some in to see whether I prefer them with our without it.
Pumpkin Mac ‘n Cheese - I started adding pumpkin puree when I realized my daughter was obsessed with mac ‘n cheese. She actually didn’t notice the pumpkin, so at least I feel great about serving here this cheesy dish since I know it is also full of veggies. Will be great with squashes as wel.
Olive Oil Pumpkin Bread - While I adore quick bread, I always try to lighten it up. When I finally found this olive oil based bread, I was truly hooked. And I felt like I could have a healthier breakfast and or treat without sacrificing any flavors or taste.
Here are a few additional pumpkin recipes that I haven’t made in a while, but recall having good success with:
And of course, if you have any pumpkin recipes that you think I’d enjoy, please share them with me. I know that I’d be back in the kitchen baking up a storm once life settles down a little bit :)
