In the Mood for Pumpkin

fall baking pumpkin recipe

Yesterday was the day.  

I made pumpkin bread.

Breaking out one, of many, easy pumpkin recipes, just seemed appropriate. This fall weather definitely has me in the mood. It’s like one day everyone is all #summer in their bikini and then bam! the next day the earth turns the corner straight into fall. I believe it’s more shocking going summer to fall than winter to spring. I am not ever ready for this!

With this change in seasons comes the change in eating. {After all, eating is related to every single thing that has ever happened ever.}  In light of that I busted out the canned pumpkin. It started with the pumpkin bread but these three easy pumpkin recipes are up next. I make them every single year. Not sure if that makes me boring and predictable? {Don’t answer this.}

Three Easy Pumpkin Recipes

Pumpkin Oatmeal

I found this easy recipe when I was trying to figure out what to do with the pumpkin puree that was left over after making pumpkin bread. This is the perfect solution instead of tossing it. Oh and also because I started eating oatmeal now that it’s cooler, oatmeal is like soup, I can’t eat it when it’s hot out.

Pumpkin Cookies

I make these every single year. They are a soft cakey cookie and they have a glaze. I’ll eat anything with a glaze on it! Perfect with a cup of black coffee. These are also easy to make, if you have a can of pumpkin you probably already have the other ingredients in the pantry.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

I’ve made this chili recipe so many times. You would have no idea that there is even pumpkin in it! I also like to toss in some additional  ingredients to this recipe, such as corn, beans, chilis, whatever you prefer.

What are some of your favorite easy fall recipes? Feel free to send them my way, maybe I can break out of my same 3 easy pumpkin recipes rut!
