This collection of delicious healthy paleo pumpkin recipes features everything from savory snacks to dinner to dessert and more! In this post you’ll find new twists with pumpkin as the focus as well as not-often-seen savory pumpkin recipes too!
Warm soups and baked goods are always so comforting when the weather starts to get cold. The flavors of fall are some of my favorites of the whole year. From cinnamon to squashes to cranberries and of course pumpkin, autumn foods bring so much flavor and depth to the season.
I’ve created this list of healthy pumpkin recipes that go beyond your basic pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice latte (although those classics are on here too!). You can even learn how to make your own easy fresh pumpkin puree (by learning the basics below!) or use canned pumpkin.
70+ Healthy Pumpkin Recipes (Paleo & Gluten Free):
Did you know it can be much more affordable and surprisingly easy to make your own basics for pumpkin recipes? The recipes below show you how to make simple pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree without having to buy canned!
You don’t usually think of snacks when you hear “pumpkin recipes”, but with tasty ideas like pumpkin hummus, pumpkin bars and pumpkin hummus, you’ll want to make these recipes over and over again!
One of my favorite breakfast recipes in the fall is the pumpkin pie smoothie below. It’s just like a nice slice of pumpkin pie in liquid form, but healthier. Other recipes like pumpkin muffins, granola and pancakes will add spice to your morning!
Are you buying unhealthy, sugar-laden and expensive pumpkin spice lattes at coffee shops? You can easily make a more affordable and healthier version at home with the recipes below.
It’s not as hard as you think to make delectable gluten free and paleo breads. Plus pumpkin makes the perfect ingredient for a moist and flavorful paleo bread. Enjoy a slice with your morning coffee or as an afternoon snack.
Although many fall pumpkin recipes are sweet desserts, pumpkin is actually a great ingredient for savory recipes. Pumpkin is in the squash family just like butternut squash and delicata squash, so naturally it would make a tasty addition to the recipes below like curry and dal.
Soup & Chili:
I love the idea of including pumpkin in a chili recipe! The rich flavor and creamy texture makes a great addition to the hearty meat and sharp tomato. The soups below are also a wonderful flavorful addition to your fall dinner table!
The pumpkin desserts are what we’ve all been waiting for, right?? I have to admit that I love when fall comes around and all of the pumpkin spice flavored food comes out. However, I hate to consume all the added sugar, grains and other unhealthy preservatives and additives included in store-bought food. Luckily, it’s easy to make healthier naturally sweetened paleo sweet treats with pumpkin as the main focus!
