Happy Halloween! In the past we’ve written about how careful you need to be on behalf of your little ones to make sure their trick-or-treating ends safely.
For example, double check at home to make sure everything is sealed and gluten-free. While you could argue it is safer with better gluten-free labeling in 2014, never rest on your laurels and assume what has always been gluten-free still is: check all labels for any potential changes!
But instead of talking about safe trick-or-treating, this year we wanted to celebrate Halloween with a more positive approach and talk about three awesome gluten-free pumpkin recipes that the whole family will love – on Halloween and beyond!
Pumpkin is one of our favorite parts of fall: pumpkin lattes, tasty pumpkin pie, and the sweet smell of my Yankee pumpkin spice candle wafting through the house.
But just because there is never enough pumpkin, let’s dig into three delicious gluten-free pumpkin recipes that we consider hidden gems…
This is my go-to recipe when I have extra pureed pumpkin lying around after baking. It’s super easy, healthy and so, so good. I’ve also replaced the pumpkin with butternut squash and with sweet potato and they are equally as good. Make sure you don’t forget the toasted seeds! They are the best part. This recipe makes about 3 cups of hummus.

This is a quick treat for your sweet tooth. It can be made vegan and with either fresh or canned pumpkin. I always try to use cold pumpkin because making this without ice keeps it super creamy, but you can add ice to cool it down if you’d like! Look at how simple this is:
Throw all of this into a blender and blend until smooth, and enjoy!
There really couldn’t be a combination more perfect than pumpkin, spices and chocolate. This recipe calls for raisins but i’ve always added chocolate chips as well and they are so yummy. These never stay long around here!
