Alright - let's jump on the holiday pumpkin recipe bandwagon!!!
(The Healthy Way)
Most of these recipes are set up to be gluten free and sugar free. Although, they also work with regular flour and sugar too.
First up my favorite - CROCKPOT Pumpkin Custard
For those that love their crock pot because they seem to lose time instead of gain time during the holidays - this post is for you ;-) This is easy, moist and a delicious treat. Don't forget to let this sit in the refrigerator for a while before serving.
Second - Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting.
OK, maybe this is actually my favorite. These are dense and full of the best pumpkin flavor mixed with a creamy topping. One thing that is so great about these is you only use 2TBSP of coconut oil for the entire recipe! It's hard to find a delicious recipe that isn't just loaded with butter or the like. You will LOVE this, I promise.
Third - Crockpot Apple or Pear Butter.
This has to be the easiest and best tasting apple butter recipe around! In my last house we had a pear tree and I made this by the gallon! I can't wait to have a few fruit trees planted here. Maybe next year? I have never tried this with pumpkin but since I'm out a pear tree, this might just be my lucky year to try it!!!
Fourth - Pumpkin Tart with Greek Yogurt Topping
I'm a huge fan of using Apple Juice to replace sugar in my pumpkin deserts or apple pie. If you have never tired it, give it a shot!
Fifth - MOIST Banana PUMPKIN Bread
Oh boy, your in for a treat with this one. Super moist and delicious. (Dairy and Refined Sugar Free)
