Fall is here, and you know what the means. Pumpkins everywhere! While you’re off getting your pumpkin spice latte, the kids will want a taste of the fall harvest as well. There are plenty of pumpkin recipes out there, but unfortunately, not every kid will love pumpkin soup or roasted pumpkin. No worries, parents! We’ve rounded up a few fall treats that your little ones will love.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars
These oatmeal bars are soft, chewy, and loaded with chocolate chips. They’re perfect for an on-the-go treat! Not into chocolate? Try adding raisins or dried cranberries instead.
No-bake Pumpkin Bites
This no-bake treat is a fun one for the kids to help you make. They’ll become the kids’ favorite crunchy after-school snack this fall.
Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese
Sneak some healthy pumpkin into your macaroni and cheese this fall. This is a great savory alternative to other sweet treats the kids will gobble up this Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Cinnamon and Sugar Pumpkin Seeds
Don’t let those seeds go to waste! If you’re using real pumpkins instead of canned, then this is a fun treat for the kids to help you prepare before they go in the oven. Instead of cinnamon sugar, you can opt for a healthy savory option with any mix of spices from your pantry.
Pumpkin Ice Cream
All of these warm treats are tasty, but here in Texas, the summer heat follows us into fall. If you want to hop on the frozen pumpkin trend, try cooling down with this creamy, cold pumpkin recipe.
Pumpkin Spice Mini Muffins
What little one doesn’t love mini muffins? These mini muffins bring pumpkin and banana together for a yummy snack or breakfast.
