Like most of you, since last fall, every time a pumpkin craving has hit, I’ve had to satisfy it with some non-Libby’s brand of canned pumpkin or canned butternut squash. I finally found some of my beloved Libby’s (it really is the best) at Kroger last week. Usually, I prefer the smaller cans, but I did not hesitate to throw the only large can they had on their shelf into my shopping cart.
So, what does one do with so much pumpkin? Well, there are many uses, but I came up with two new ones just this morning.
Use #1 was my breakfast:
World’s healthiest pumpkin roll…
Use #2: Pumpkin Chocolate Oaties…
I doubled my Maple Nut Oaties recipe, using Justin’s Chocolate PB as my nut butter of choice, and instead of 1 cup of maple syrup, I subbed 1/2 cup pumpkin along with 1/3 cup honey. I also added a hearty dash of pumpkin pie spice. Oh my gosh, these are so good, and I can’t wait to send them to a certain photographer.
What’s your favorite use for pumpkin?
