Ultimate Pumpkin Recipe Round-up (with dietary needs chart)

Would you like proof I am crazy? Well, here you go. Here is a lovely “little” round-up for you for fall’s super hero food Pumpkin. Who here loves pumpkin? That’s what I thought! That is a LOT of hands raised.

This round-up includes nearly 90 pumpkin recipes, all real food, and for those who have special dietary needs (specifically GAPS or allergies) I have a handy little chart… that took me a pretty little time *cough* to figure out.

I hope you enjoy my efforts and break out the pumpkins!!

Oh, and while your fantastic pumpkin goodies are cooking, why not Make Your Own Fabric Pumpkins? I have a guest post on Homemaker’s Challenge today about it.

But first, a few notes:

  • I have notes for some of the recipes, they are below each chart.
  • A few things I have labeled as GAPS because the only change that needs to be made, if you are on GAPS, is to switch out honey for Maple Syrup. I tell you when that is the case.
  • A recipe gets the whole grain “x” if it is mostly whole grain (almost all of them are 100% whole grain).
  • Everyone defines “Real Food” differently. This is basically what I mean– you can pronounce all the ingredients and the processed foods are minimal (and could be made at home if you were willing for the most part). A few of the gluten free recipes do call for Xantham gum, but that is about as processed as it gets.
  • I recommend wherever it calls for Pumpkin Puree using fresh instead of canned to get the most flavor and health benefits. Here is a very easy way to do that. 
  • You can make your own pumpkin pie spice for any recipe that calls for it.

Now, let the fun begin!
