Pumpkin Invasion: Healthy Pumpkin Pie, Cookies, Bread, Muffins, and Oatmeal Recipes

With fall time comes the need to bake with pumpkin...or is that just me? I LOVE the way it smells, the flavor, and I think it is just so fitting for the season. But hearing healthy and pumpkin in the same sentence when baking doesn't usually happen. Until now that is. These awesome pumpkin recipes are sure to woo your audiences! 

Healthy Pumpkin Pie 
(From Hungry Girl)

Ingredients:


For Crust

2 cups Fiber One Cereal (Original) 

1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread
3 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener
1 tsp. cinnamon
For Filling

One 15-oz. can pureed pumpkin
One 12-oz. can evaporated fat-free milk
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
3/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener
1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
Optional Topping: Fat Free Cool Whip

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine butter with 2 tbsp. water. Microwave until just melted, and set aside. In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter mixture and crumbs with remaining ingredients for crust. Stir until mixed well. Spray an oven-safe 9-inch pie dish lightly with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute crust mixture, using your hands or a flat utensil to firmly press and form the crust. Press it into the edges and up along the sides of the dish. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the filling. Mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust. The filling may be taller than the crust. Bake pie in the oven for 45 minutes. Allow pie to cool slightly. Refrigerate for several hours, overnight if possible. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Cut into 8 slices and, if you like, top with Reddi-wip or Cool Whip before serving! 
* I made this for my family last Thanksgiving and they LOVED it. It is really delicious!

  • 2/3 cup rolled oats 
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line muffin tins with paper liners. Combine flours, bran, oats, baking powder, spices, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Using whisk or spoon, stir until well mixed. Combine remaining ingredients (except nuts) in a large mixing bowl; beat until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Beat just until combined. Spoon into prepared pans or tins (fill cups until just about full). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean.

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg together in a medium bowl. Combine egg, oil, milk and pumpkin in a small bowl. Stir pumpkin mixture into dry ingredients. Leave to stand for five minutes. For each pancake, scoop 1/4 cup of batter on to a hot griddle or nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray. Turn pancakes when bubbles appear and edges are cooked, after about 2 minutes. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes on second side. Makes 8-10 pancakes. Add in chopped apples, craisins, or mini chocolate chips for a touch of sweetness. Serve with maple syrup. 

Pumpkin Oatmeal

  • 1 cup water 
  • 1/8 cup pumpkin 
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar  
  • 1 (1 g) packet Splenda or Stevia 
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Add some chopped nuts, if desired. Microwave oatmeal for 2-3 minutes depending on your microwave. Be careful of the oatmeal boiling over. This could also be done on a stove top, campfire, or in a slow cooker. Stir your oatmeal and enjoy!
