Pumpkin Pecan Squares

If you’re a fan of pumpkin pie, you’ll have to try these Pumpkin Pecan Squares! They have a yummy pumpkin pie-type filling with a cookie-like crust. A crumbly mixture of flour, sugar, brown sugar, and butter make up the crust, and you use part of that mixture (with chopped pecans added in) to sprinkle on top of the pumpkin filling, creating a slightly crumbly, buttery topping. So it’s a cross between a pie and a cookie bar—the best of both worlds, you could say! 🙂

Pumpkin Spice Granola

Homemade granola is the best, and it’s fun to make seasonal variations of it—like this Pumpkin Spice Granola! This autumn-themed granola is made with oats, hulled pumpkin seeds (pepitas), chopped pecans, and dried cranberries. And it’s spiced up with cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice. You can also add in other things like coconut flakes or sunflower seeds if you like. The hulled pumpkin seeds I used were already roasted and lightly salted, which worked really well in this granola. If you use raw hulled pumpkin seeds, you may want to add an extra 1/4 teaspoon salt to the recipe.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

If you’re in the mood for an autumn treat, keep this Pumpkin Coffee Cake in mind! Made with canned pumpkin puree, it has some of the favorite spices of fall—cinnamon and ginger—to add to the flavor, and it’s sweetened with brown sugar. The best part, I think, is the very generous topping of streusel—yum! You just can’t go wrong with all that streusel! 🙂
