Can there really be healthy pumpkin spice dessert recipes?

Oh yes there is! Imagine, not having to miss out on one of the most delicious and enticing flavors of the season! Being able to enjoy healthy pumpkin recipes and feel like you completely indulged, but without the guilt.

I adore fall, and pumpkin spice is one of the most delicious flavors that is everywhere right now. I want to have pumpkin spice every day.

But a lot of your typical baked goods, desserts, and other pumpkiny recipes are terrible for you!

High in calories, fat, and sugar. It is typical for people to put on at least 10 pounds this season from indulging in their favorite holiday desserts.

Pumpkin is actually extremely low in carbs and very easy to fit into a healthy recipe. When you add in that all of these recipes substitute sugar for healthier options, you are set to stay within your dietary limits and calories, while still taking part of all the flavors of the season!

But have no fear:

You can have your pumpkin spice desserts and eat them too!

I’ve found some absolutely mouthwatering healthy pumpkin recipes that fit into various popular diets right now. Keto, Paleo, low carb, Vegan, and more!

Take your pick of these delectable sugar-free and completely healthy fall desserts and never feel like you are missing out because of your diet again!
