Pumpkin Spice Latte by Greatist

Starbucks introduced us to the Pumpkin Spice Latte we know and love, but at $4.50+ per latte, it might be time to try a homemade version. Not only does this latte have the same great taste as the one from your favorite coffee shop, but it is also healthier for you! It uses pure maple syrup and non-sweetened spice mix instead of the sugary ingredients most cafes use, so this latte is sure to win your heart because of the way it tastes and the way it makes you feel.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal by Damn Delicious

Not a latte drinker? Try waking up to a bowl of this delicious pumpkin pie oatmeal! It has the great combination of flavors you’d find in a traditional slice of your favorite pie minus all the unnecessary calories! Using old-fashioned rolled oats, almond milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, pecans, and maple syrup, create this delicious breakfast to start your day off a healthy and a festive way!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies by Delish

Once you have tried these scrumptious cookies from Delish, you won’t make regular chocolate chips for the rest of the season. Combining the great taste and moisture of pumpkin with a tried and true chocolate chip cookie is sure to be a hit for a holiday occasion, large or small! Ingredients are flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, salt, butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Rolls by Gimme Some Oven

Are you lucky enough to have had that neighbor growing up that used to always make you pumpkin rolls during the holidays? This year, make your own with this easy-to-follow recipe from Gimme Some Oven! When you think about, it’s as simple as frosting a pumpkin cake with a cream cheese frosting and rolling it up, but something about these is far greater than the sum of their parts. Ingredients include flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin puree, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.

We hoped this post inspired you to bake with pumpkin all throughout the holiday season. Thanks for reading!
