14 of My Favorite Pumpkin Recipes

14 of My Favorite Pumpkin Recipes | browneyedbaker.com

It’s October 1st, which means it’s the beginning of National Pumpkin Month!

At the start of each new season, I love sharing all of my favorite seasonal recipes with you. One of the repeated pieces of feedback that I received in my reader survey a couple of weeks ago was that the seasonal roundups are a little unwieldy and way too long to digest. Many of you said you’d prefer a breakdown of my favorites from the archives and a shorter list. Your wish is my command!

Below I’ve narrowed down my favorite recipes that include pumpkin (quite a difficult task!). I love baking with pumpkin once there’s a chill in the air, and usually don’t stop until the holiday cookie baking kicks up. Not surprisingly, all of my favorites are on the sweet side, but there are a number of breakfast options in there! I hope you enjoy browsing and find the new roundup format easier to navigate!

These bars aren’t too sweet, aren’t too spicy, and a perfect blend of creamy cheesecake and thick crumb topping.
