5 pumpkin snacl recipes

Pumpkin season is right around the corner and pumpkin spice will be everywhere. I was not ready for pumpkin a week ago, but now I am starting to crave it. 

I love using pumpkin in snack foods because it helps change things up from the rest of the year. Not only that but it increases the nutrition of the snack. 

Pumpkins are a fantastic source of beta-carotene. Beta-Carotene is a precursor for Vitamin A and an antioxidant. It helps support the immune system and may stimulate the release of cells in the body that attack cancer cells. 

It is also a good source of Potassium. Potassium supports the nervous system and the heart. It is important for water balance which can affect blood pressure. Potassium is also important for  muscle contractions and can help with cramping.

5 Pumpkin Snack Recipes

These snacks only have 6 ingredients, use one bowl and take about 20 minutes!

I love cookies that are more cakey than crisp. These cookies use a premade mix so they are really simple. 

Apple season is just around the corner. When you have tons of apples and not enough recipes, try this. This is a simple and healthy snack.

These are definitely fudgy. If you like slightly undercooked brownies you will like these. 

Ingredients lists can be scary. This one is simple.
