Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Oatmeal Recipe
Chocolate is not just for dessert. You can actually whip up a delicious bowl of chocolate pumpkin oatmeal that is super healthy. Probably healthier than those coffee shop pastries because this bowl contains whole grains and healthy fats. *Vegan / Vegetarian*
Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe
This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE recipes. After creating it, I seriously made like 12 batches of these muffins in a row. They’re so good. I sometimes even eat them as dessert! *Vegan / Vegetarian*
Healthy Pumpkin Pie Granola Recipe
This oil-free granola recipe is packed with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Pumpkin Pie doesn’t have to just be delicious in coffee. It’s really delish as a granola flavor too and makes for a festive breakfast or snack over yogurt or served with your favorite milk. *Vegan / Vegetarian*
Healthy Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts Recipe
Before those pumpkin muffins above, THIS was my favorite pumpkin dessert of all my healthy pumpkin recipes. I can’t tell you how many batches of these I’ve made. They’re so delicious, so easy, and so fast! I love to whip these up when I want a quick dessert since they’re ready in 20 minutes or less. *Vegan / Vegetarian options*
Healthy Pumpkin Pie Green Smoothie
I know – smoothies are for warm weather. But hear me out – smoothies are great year round! You can even put a fall flavor profile onto a classic green smoothie with a couple simple edits. This is a great way to enjoy healthy ingredients like spinach or kale plus pumpkin to boost your nutrients for the day. *Vegan / Vegetarian*
Healthy Coconut Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Love pumpkin pie?! Here’s a fun twist on the classic pumpkin pie recipe. This version brings in a delicious coconut flavor. Plus, if the pre-made pie crusts are out at the store (or you prefer to make your own), this one is made with a unique oat crust. Did I mention there’s a coconut cream sauce!? *Vegan / Vegetarian*
Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Doughnuts Recipee
This is a delicious chocolate take on the above pumpkin doughnuts recipe. But this one comes with a delicious glaze! Yum! Feel free to add sprinkles to your glaze. Or skip the glaze and top your doughnuts with cinnamon sugar. It’s hard to believe these are healthy!
Healthy Stovetop Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
Cozy up with a comforting bowl of pumpkin pie oatmeal. Stovetop oats sound slow, but this takes about 10 minutes to make, and the extra time invested is worth it for this creamy pumpkin goodness.
Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake Minis Recipe
Yup, my healthy pumpkin recipes round-up includes cake! Whether you’re not wanting too much cake or you’re just feeling a little lazy, these pumpkin chocolate chip cake minis are a winner.

Homemade granola is so easy and makes your home smell amazing! This recipe uses pumpkin instead of oil so it’s an oil-free granola recipe that tastes great. Add in your favorite nuts and dried fruits to make it yours.
Healthy Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Recipe
If all the cooking and baking of the other healthy pumpkin recipes is overwhelming you or you want a lazy option to have on hand, this is your ticket. This requites no cooking, baking, or even kitchen skills. If you can mix, you can make this one! It’s great for food prep or to prep ahead before entertaining guests.
Healthy Coconut Macaroons Recipe
These are surprisingly delicious and healthy! I love prepping these for snacks / dessert later. They’re great for roadtrips too. And they’re also a wonderful excuse to pull your dehydrator out and put it to good use.
There are SO many delicious ways to enjoy pumpkin. This post features some of my favorite breakfast, snack, and dessert healthy pumpkin recipes that are a great use for canned pumpkin. Some can even use that last bit of leftover canned pumpkin from other recipes.
