Fall is in the air and there is no better time to whip up some cozy and delicious, seasonal treats! Oftentimes Mamas are so preoccupied with caring for their families, that serving up special treats just for themselves happens few and far between. Today we are sharing a few quick and healthy recipes however to bring Fall right on into your kitchen, with foods that are made with Mama in mind!
Incorporating pumpkin into meals and snacks is a great way to switch up your go-to recipes! While protein smoothies are always a good choice for busy Mamas, we think this specific one is also a good choice for celebrating the Fall season. This smoothie tastes like a slice of pumpkin pie…with an extra side of protein!
Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
This next recipe is easy to toss together, with no cooking time needed! Just gather the ingredients and go. The best part is that these little bites pack a whole lot of energy with them! Serve them up with your breakfast or grab them as a healthy snack option throughout the day.
Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix well until combined. The mixture will be thick! Once the ingredients are well mixed, use a tablespoon to measure out enough dough to roll into a ball. Place each ball on a large plate or into a storage container & refrigerate. You can even portion some out to store in the freezer to use at a later time.
This last recipe is a staple one to keep in your kitchen for all of Fall. While it does take just a little longer to prepare than the last two recipes, we think it is totally worth the extra effort! Whether you are attending a playdate and looking for a fun treat to bring along, or just looking for a yummy treat to have on hand, these muffins are a must-have as they are both healthy and sweet. They are great for serving up for little taste pallets, too!
