The Best Healthy Pumpkin Recipes to Make this Fall

Delicious healthy pumpkin recipes to make all fall long! These flavorful recipes are the perfect way to use both fresh pumpkin and pumpkin puree to make incredible baked treats, savory dinners, and easy snacks. 

I hope you loved #AKPumpkinWeek and each of these new pumpkin recipes as much as I did. They were so much fun to make and I’ve loved seeing all of your pumpkin photos on Instagram and in our Facebook group.

It’s not too late to share your creations for a chance to win an Amazon gift card! Be sure to tag #AKPumpkinWeek and #ambitiouskitchen when you share — winner will be chosen on Monday, 10/21.

Below I’ve rounded up the best healthy pumpkin recipes that I’ve made throughout the years. You’ll find delicious curries, chilis and soups, plus plenty of treats to make this season. I suggest picking up a couple of fresh pumpkins for these recipes because some of them have cubed pumpkin in them. Use the extra to make puree for your favorite baked goods, or grab a couple of cans for ease. Never made your own pumpkin puree before? Watch the video below to see how to cut, dice, cook and puree your own pumpkin (hint: it’s easier than you think!)
