Now that is is officially Fall, it is only fitting that I dedicate a “Friday Foodie Favorites” post to one of my all-time favorite foods: pumpkin! I know that I am not alone with my pumpkin-loving feelings, so hopefully these recipes and products will give you some fantastic ideas to satisfy all of your pumpkin cravings. Oh, and I cannot forget to give Katie a little bit of credit for this post. I loved her Pumpkin Approved post so much that I knew I also needed an ALL pumpkin post, too!
Friday Foodie Favorites: All Things Pumpkin
A couple of weeks ago I made Robyn’s Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice Pancakes. I ate half of the recipe for breakfast and saved the other half for breakfast the next day at work. These pancakes reheat beautifully, and also taste absolutely delicious topped with peanut butter, almond butter, pumpkin butter, and/or…
…homemade slow cooker applesauce. These babies are oh-so good!
Speaking of pumpkin butter…
I have a slight obsession with Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter! I actually have a huge stash of it from last year that I am still working my way through, but for those of you who do not, I have good news: it is back in stores!
I have mentioned these before, but they definitely deserve another shout out. These Maple Kissed Pumpkin Muffins from The Happy Herbivore are amazing and SO easy to make. Plus, the nutrition facts are fabulous! Eat these up!
Next up is another great pumpkin-filled breakfast idea:
Here is another great recipe from Robyn. Her Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal is deeeelicious! I cut my bake into three servings (instead of four..hey, I like to eat!) for some of my breakfasts for work this week. I followed suit and topped mine off with peanut butter and banana slices. One of the days I subbed in sliced peaches in place of the banana and that was fabulous, too. This is a great pumpkin breakfast option and could not be easier to make. Try this one out if you are a pumpkin lover!
This post would not be complete without another mention of my Banana Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie. I have made this bad boy several times since sharing the recipe because I seriously cannot get enough. Yes, it tastes as good as it looks! Oh, and for those of you who have been loving this breakfast cookie, I have a new breakfast cookie coming your way soon. And it may involve PB & J! ;)
It is Fall, people! Go eat some pumpkin!
