This week I’m sharing a pumpkin recipe with you! Let’s be honest here; it’s the one time of year where I feel you can get away with it.
Give pumpkin some credit
Pumpkin this… pumpkin flavoured that… you either love it—or, kind of hate it. I’m sort of in the middle, often searching for ways to prepare it because it is packed with vitamin A and other powerful nutrients.
Eating pumpkin can improve your vision and immune health with all of its plant-based benefits. So maybe trying a recipe that might convert you to sort of like pumpkin is worth it, right?
Raw Pumpkin Macaroons
This Quick 8-Ingredient Raw Pumpkin Macaroons recipe was developed to be easy, no fuss, no baking required. Simply mix the ingredients, roll into mini balls, and freeze.
A combination of shredded coconut, puréed pumpkin, organic hemp hearts, and pumpkin spice turns this recipe into the perfect healthy low-sugar snack or dessert.
Remove the macaroons from the freezer just before serving as they are best-enjoyed semi-frozen.
A pumpkin recipe for the holidays
With Thanksgiving and even the winter holidays approaching, it’s always great to add easy pumpkin recipes to our repertoire.
Impress your family with these healthy Raw Pumpkin Macaroons.
Do you like pumpkin pie?
My Apple Pumpkin Pie recipe will hopefully be posted in the next few weeks. I don’t like pumpkin pie; I try to, but— it’s just not my thing. So I worked at creating a recipe to include both apples and pumpkin, and it turned out perfect.
With a drizzle of my dad’s maple syrup, I enjoyed my healthy Apple Pumpkin Pie. I ate a slice for four (4) days in a row—I liked it a lot!
The recipe got two thumbs up from both my husband and my youngest son. It’s one recipe that I will make for the holidays for sure.
