When it comes to “trick or treat?” the answer is easy: bring on the treats!
Pumpkin’s rich flavor, gorgeous color and affinity for warm, comforting spices make it a natural for sweet creations. We love an afternoon snack that’s sweet, but not cloying. A treat, but not an over-indulgence. While we adore pumpkin made into a pie as much as anybody, there are other ways to enjoy its many virtues.
You don’t have to choose between good for you and fun to eat. Foodies on the web are leading the way to healthy, delicious and fun. We happily present a tasty collection of healthy and irresistible treats made with pumpkin: Oatmeal muffins, Granola and a Smoothie.
Healthy Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins
These streusel-topped banana pumpkin muffins from Michelle Huynh are made with whole wheat flour and traditional pumpkin pie spices, then finished with a barely sweet brown sugar glaze. If you can resist these, please let us know how you do it!

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Sonnet Lamberth conceived an outrageously rich, fiber and protein packed pumpkin smoothie that is “a great grab-and-go breakfast or the perfect afternoon treat to power your kitchen dance party.” It’s beautiful, vegan, and delicious.

Simple and way superior to store-bought, Yadsia Iglesias brings her refined sensibility and artistry to humble granola, dressing it up for autumn with a touch of pumpkin and spice. Enjoy it warm from the oven for breakfast, or stash it in your office drawer for a guilt-free afternoon snack.
