Are you like me, full as a pumpkin but still in the pumpkin spirit? Here are a few sugar free pumpkin recipes, some with companion flavor blends, others in not-so-traditional forms, some a little of both.
Apple Butter Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie (Low Carb Friends)
Topped with Splenda-cinnamon pecans and whipped cream, this is a pumpkin pie like none you’ve ever tasted before. Baked in a water bath, like cheesecake.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Granola (Spoonful of Sugar Free)
This fabulous recipe is a coffeecake substitute. It even contains Godiva ground coffee and whole coffee beans. Make an extra batch in decaf for nighttime munching bliss.
Pumpkin Vanilla Smoothie (Sugar Free Mom)
For a high protein snack that will truly hold you without hunger pangs, this smoothie’s a real go-to. Surprise ingredient: cottage cheese.
Three 5* reviews on my vegetarian cookbook:
Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookies (Family Fresh Cooking)
These delightful cookies feature quinoa and oat flours and natural peanut butter, but no fork prints. The pictures are as sweet as the vanilla stevia. Cookies for Kids Cancer: Best Bake Sale Cookbook is also mentioned in this post, but the giveaway is closed.
Instant Pumpkin Pudding (About Low Carb Diets)
For a quick and easy, creamy treat, use butterscotch or vanilla sugar free instant pudding, and top with toasted pecans. Be ready to lick the bowl.
