Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Roasted pumpkin seeds make for an undeniably tasty fall snack! Boil your seeds in salted water, drain, toss in olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees. For a personalized twist, sprinkle with your favorite autumn spice before baking.

Carved Pumpkin Candy Bowl
Carve an extra-large mouth on one of your pumpkins to create a sizeable opening. Come Halloween, fill your pumpkin with candy so trick-or-treaters can reach into the pumpkin’s mouth for their treats.

Pumpkin Protein Balls
Looking for a better-for-you use for your homemade pumpkin puree? Pumpkin protein balls are the perfect no-bake, on-the-go snack for festive fall activities. Combine pumpkin puree, nut  butter, oats and coconut for a pop-able yet protein-packed treat.

Pumpkin Puree
You can puree the flesh of your pumpkin to use in hearty breakfast breads and holiday pies, or as a rich starter for autumn soups. Simply clean out the insides of the pumpkin, slice in half and place flesh side down in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Peel off the skin a toss into a food processor. Voila!
