my favorite pumpkin recipes
The leaves are changing color, the mornings and evenings are crisp, we’re pulling out scarves and boots and cozy blankets… yep, it’s fall, y’all. And what better way to make the absolute most of the season than by baking pumpkin-inspired recipes? I’ve rounded up all of my favorite pumpkin recipes from the blog right here in a single post, so you can take less time looking for a recipe to bake and more time enjoying all the goodness that comes out of your oven.
My Favorite Pumpkin Recipes
What better way to celebrate the spirit of the season than with pumpkin recipes, amiright? From breakfast through dessert, breads to pies, this list has you covered for all your pumpkin-loving kitchen escapades. Enjoy!
Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin pie is delicious on its own, but when you add creamy, caramel-y dulce de leche to the filling, you’ll wonder why it hasn’t just always been this way. Because, WOW.
Soft, chewy and spiced, these cookies are a true celebration of all the goodness that fall has to offer. Highly recommend baking a double batch and freezing some for a last-minute hankering.
Pumpkin Chai Doughnut Muffins
Pumpkin, meet chai. Chai, meet muffin. Muffin, meet doughnut. Pumpkin Chai Doughnut Muffins, meet your face.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
I don’t think you can truly call it fall until you’ve baked at least one loaf of pumpkin bread, and this is my go-to. Sometimes I leave out the chocolate chips for a pure pumpkin experience, but sometimes the chocolate chips are just what the doctor ordered.
Pumpkin Zucchini Bread
I love this combo because it’s like those warm fall days in quick bread form — where the leaves are changing color but the sun is shining and you can still wear shorts with a sweatshirt. You know? You know. This bread is like that.
Pumpkin Cranberry Twists
Say hello to your new favorite side bread for Thanksgiving, or a chili cookoff, or a breakfast/brunch spread… you get the idea. These twists are just as delicious as they are pretty!
Pumpkin Spice Puff Cereal
While there may not technically be actual pumpkin in this homemade cereal, the spirit is still there in pumpkin spice form. And let me tell you, pumpkin spice cereal is ah-mazing. Love this puffed rice version!
Pumpkin Seeds, Three Ways
I grew up enjoying roasted pumpkin seeds as much, if not more, than the actual act of carving pumpkins, and now that I’m grown I’ve come up with even more ways to enjoy said seeds (P.S. one of those ways involves sprinkles, yay!).
Pumpkin Pie Brioche Rolls
Pumpkin pie, but make it a bread roll. These lil’ guys are soft, tender, flavorful and easy. Also, they taste like pumpkin pie, so that’s a tasty bonus.
Pumpkin Cranberry Flaxseed Crisps
Charcuterie board, butter board, appetizer board, whatever you want to make, these pumpkin cranberry flaxseed crisps are destined for a spot on it. Crisp, chewy and full of all the good stuff, they’re also perfect for dipping or stacking.
Challah bread is among my favorites because it is so soft and pillowy, but then this version takes things up another notch with pumpkin flavor throughout. Do I see pumpkin-y French toast in your future? Yes, yes I do.
Pecan Pumpkin Pie with Bourbon Maple Whipped Cream
This pie really delivers on the “go-big-or-go-home” mantra. For pecan pie lovers, for pumpkin pie lovers, for bourbon lovers, this pie is for you.
Iced Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies
Iced oatmeal cookies reign supreme in the nostalgia department, and this pumpkin spice version is no exception. I fully plan to bake these on repeat from now until the holidays (and then some) — I encourage you to join me.
thank you for all of this pumpkin inspiration, pecan pumpkin pie might be my favorite, bourbon maple whip cream topped even better!
