Pumpkin is one of our favorite fall flavors—we enjoy it time and again! With its balance of sweet and savory, this autumn ingredient can be incorporated into any meal of the day. And since fall seems to be flying by, we went in search of easy recipes to help us make the very most of pumpkin season.

  • Grain-free Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts: Is there such a thing as healthy doughnuts? This yummy recipe includes almond butter and agave nectar—but with a drizzle of honey and a dash of cinnamon-sugar topping, these pumpkin-flavored treats still satisfy your sweet tooth! (image)

  • Yum Yum Brownie Muffins: Yes, they are called “yum yum” for a reason. Plus, this recipe can’t be easier—it only requires two ingredients: a can of pumpkin and a box of devil’s food cake mix. Mix, bake, and enjoy! (image)

  • Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread: Take your regular cream cheese up a notch! This super-simple and delicious spread is perfect for topping bagels and dipping graham crackers. (image)

  • Crockpot Pumpkin Soup: Want a warm dinner waiting when you arrive home from work? Toss pumpkin puree into a crockpot with veggies and spices in the morning, and you’ll have a hearty soup ready by the time you clock out. (image)

  • Pumpkin and Caramelized Onion Mac & Cheese: The secret ingredients in this macaroni and cheese go beyond the pumpkin and caramelized onions. Amber beer, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper bring a rich, fall flavor to the traditional cheesy dish. (image)

  • Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles: Not only are these trifles easy to assemble, but they’re also almost too cute to eat! Taste the layers of crumbled cookies, pumpkin cream cheese, and whipped topping in every bite.  (image)
