I am a huge fan of canned pumpkin. Once, I had ten cans of pumpkin in my pantry. No lie!
I feel that you guys, my faithful blogger readers, should be pumpkin fans as well. It would bond us better.
Today, I am posting some of my favorite recipes for this wonderful time of year. I hope that you will try them, and love them as much as I love them.
Spiced Pumpkin Muffin
This is a major staple in my house. I eat these things ALL the time. This healthy cupcake/muffin is super low-fat and delicious. Well, it's healthier without the icing but I couldn't find a picture without the icing. Feel free to put icing on yours to make it a cupcake, but I do not, because I'm a weird health nut, which is why I call it a muffin. Anyway, on the recipe. Are you ready?
1 can of pumpkin (regular size)
1 box of spiced cake mix
Seriously, that's all you do, two ingredients. You can do that, right? I know you can.
Pumpkin Raisin Scone
1.5 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons softened butter
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 box of raisins
Preheat oven to 425.
Form dough into a ball, place on a greased baking sheet and pat down into a circle about 1/2 to 1/4 inches thick.
Sprinkle with sugar and cut into 8 segments.
Bake at 425*F for about 20 minutes or until edges are slightly crisp and the top is lightly browned.
I just discovered this recipe and it is fantastic. It rocked my breakfast routine for about 3 days. I highly recommend it for all your breakfast/pumpkin needs.
Sorry...no picture. Please imagine a hot bowl of oatmeal.
Ok, so I don't really have a recipe for this, but I just add a couple tsp of pumpkin into my plain oatmeal. I also add a dash of cinnamon for kicks. If you really wanted to get adventurous, you could add some pumpkin pie spice, chocolate chips, a banana, or maybe raisins. It is really up to your imagination.
Again, no picture.
No-fat/Low-fat Vanilla Yogurt
A spoonful of Pumpkin
Easy as pie. You know, I never understood that saying. Have you ever made a homemade pie? I haven't, but it doesn't look easy! Well, folks it's time for me to start my day. Please enjoy these great recipes.
