It’s the Season for Pumpkin!


The fall is an amazing time for delish food and pumpkin desserts are my favorite! For a long time I was just into the classic pumpkin pie. How can you go wrong with that? But I’ve learned to diversify and spread my love of pumpkin around.

I still love pumpkin pie, but there is a huge world of pumpkin desserts out there to love!


I have two go-to pumpkin desserts to share; pumpkin cookies and pumpkin bread. Yeah kids!


Pumpkin Cookies

The pumpkin cookies I make are so easy and are actually vegan. I generally like to make vegan desserts around this time of year so all party guests can enjoy them. Seriously, I love vegan desserts! The pumpkin cookies are so soft and delish; yum.



1 cup whole wheat flour

2/3 cup raw sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar

¼ cup olive oil

6 tablespoons almond milk (or any non dairy milk)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup pumpkin puree



All you have to do is mix the flour, sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder together in a bowl. Then mix in the olive oil, pumpkin, and almond milk.

Bake at 325 F for at least 15 minutes. Check on these bad boys, because I find all ovens cook them slightly different.

These cookies are so yummy! If you bring them to a party, people are going to love them. Feel free to add nuts or chocolate to the batter before cooking and they’re just as good!




The cookies only take one cup of pumpkin puree, so what do you do with the rest? Make another pumpkin dessert of course! Time for some pumpkin bread!


Pumpkin Bread

I’ve made a ton of different pumpkin breads over the years, but my man and I prefer the vegan ones! This pumpkin bread recipe is by far our favorite.



1 ¾ cup whole wheat flour

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1 cup pumpkin puree

½ cup oil (vegetable or coconut)

3 tablespoons maple syrup

3 tablespoons water



Mix your dry ingredients in one bowl and mix your wet ingredients in another.

Add both sets of ingredients into a greased loaf pan and bake that bad boy at 350 F for 40 minutes. Make sure to pre-heat your oven.

If you’d like to add nuts or chocolate to your bread, put them in after you’ve mixed the dry and wet together in the loaf pan. Then enjoy!>



Look at that kids! You buy one can of pumpkin and you can make two delish desserts. Trust me, these two bad boys are so simple and yummy and delish. Everyone will love them.

If you want to add even more flair to your cookies or bread, you can make a simple powdered sugar icing. All you need is one cup powdered sugar and 4 to 5 tablespoons of almond milk (or any milk of your choice).

Drizzle the delicious icing all over your bread or your cookies once cooled!

Pumpkin desserts are everywhere and its making me hungry for baking. I can’t wait to go make these desserts this week. Even if you don’t think you’re the best baker, you can totally make either of these recipes!

Just have fun and enjoy these amazing fall pumpkin desserts!
