It is officially the best time of the year because the leaves are changing, it's sweater weather and everything pumpkin! I have a lot more time on my hands due to not being in school for the first time this fall and have tried to take advantage of fall activities like trying new recipes.
There are a lot of tasty, fall-inspired treats out there. Unfortunately, they all seem to be filled with unhealthy ingredients. I am all about balance and letting yourself eat treats without feeling guilty. If you are making a batch of muffins and eat most of them yourself over a couple of days, you will most likely want beneficial ingredients. Lucky for you, I have a post about how to switch out the unhealthy ingredients with healthy ones.
Below are 10 fall recipes I have tried or will be trying this season to continue embracing the season.
Pumpkin Protein Muffins
This is a new family favorite recipe. I found this on Instagram from Madison Mealy. This recipe could not get any easier, or tastier. Perfect for breakfast on the go.
2 cups Kodiak Cake mix
1 cup almond milk (or regular)
2.5 cups pumpkin puree
½ cup maple syrup
Splash of vanilla
1 tbs cinnamon
Optional: chocolate chips
Set oven at 350
Pour all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined.
Spray muffin tin, pour the mixture in.
Bake for 20 minutes
What is more simple than three ingredients?!
I love making energy balls because they can be a filling snack to eat.
Perfect for a game day appetizer! I am making this for the next Packer Sunday.
I can not wait to make this for a yummy breakfast this fall. Perfect for a busy morning and great ingredients!
Whoever said salads are only for the summer clearly cannot be trusted for any health advice. This salad gives off all of the fall vibes.
Are you imagining all the nutrients in this recipe that I am right now?!
Using the crockpot is my favorite way to cook because all that is needed is to dump the ingredients in and wait.
I do not know how you can look at this recipe and not have your mouth water. The yellow potatoes and be switched out with sweet potatoes.
The last time I made apple crisp, I remember being sickened but the amount of sugar that was needed. I have now found a better alternative to apple crisp that will not have me feeling guilty when I devour the whole pan. :)
