6 Ways to Eat Pumpkin This Season

Pumpkin Bread

(1) Pumpkin Bread

I feel like people who don’t particularly like straight-up pumpkin can enjoy and appreciate pumpkin bread. I definitely do not like most pumpkin things, but pumpkin bread is easily one of my favorite foods to eat during this season, especially with a warm glass of (almond) milk.

Here is the recipe from Once Upon a Chef: https://www.onceuponachef.com/recipes/spiced-pumpkin-bread.html

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

(2) Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is a classic treat to have during this season, there’s just nothing else to be said. Instead of buying it at the store, why not make it yourself?

(3) Pumpkin Waffles

I think that these would be really cute to make on a crisp November morning and enjoy with a nice cup of tea. I personally love waffles and would not have thought to incorporate pumpkin flavor into them. These look so delicious, so I definitely know what I’m making for breakfast this weekend.

Classic Pumpkin Roll Recipe

(4) Pumpkin Roll

I have never had a slice of pumpkin roll, but now I am really craving some. This is similar to pumpkin bread, but possibly even better. It has cream cheese frosting in it, and who doesn’t love excessive sugar during the holiday season?
