Healthy Snack List for the Fall #5

We hope that in the week since we posted the last installment of this series, you’ve tried and enjoyed at least one of our listed recipes. Trying even one of our curated recipes will be super satisfying. The fall season inspires many cooks to imagine and create recipes based on pumpkins. We love pumpkins, so that’s not a problem for us.

Two of the recipes listed in this article feature pumpkins, and we could have had the whole thing have this ingredient, but we decided to show a little more variety. There’s more to fall-themed recipes than pumpkins, delicious though they may be.

Speaking of delicious, the first recipe in this list has pumpkins in addition to another fruit…

1. Whole Wheat Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Muffins are never a wrong snack choice. This recipe includes pumpkin and apple, combining two distinct tastes that complement each other well.

In addition to the vitamins and relatively low levels of sugar, this dish also includes whole wheat.

Whole wheat offers protein and fiber, which means that when you eat this snack, you’ll get a good amount of nutrients compared to, say, a chocolate chip muffin from Starbucks.

2. Cinnamon Baked Pears

If you enjoy apples, there’s a pretty strong chance that you also want pears. This recipe is more straightforward to make than the first one on this list, but we promise that it tastes every bit as good. Pears offer vitamin C and fiber, and they are low in calories.

For this recipe, you have to slice some pears in two, sprinkle cinnamon on top of them, and then bake them in an oven.

We promise that the simple addition of cinnamon will take this simple dish to the next level.

3. Pumpkin Pie Bites

In terms of preparation, this recipe takes longer to make than the baked cinnamon pears but isn’t as intensive as the pumpkin apple muffins. You mix pumpkin puree, chopped oats, peanut butter, cinnamon, and chia seeds for this dish.

You get vitamin A, protein, fiber, and antioxidants in a delicious snack.

After mixing the above ingredients in a bowl, you stir it and then create balls of the mixture. For the last step, place the balls in a fridge until they become firm.

Conclusion

Believe us when we write that there are far more pumpkin or fruit-based recipes for you to enjoy this fall. We’ll continue to explore a selection of those recipes in our following articles.
