Are you totally over pumpkin recipes yet?! I never tire of a little basic bish pumpkin spice, so I'm showing you three pumpkin-filled monstrosities of yumminess to serve up well into Thanksgiving season. Extend the goodness as long as you like. We've got some pancakes, killer dream bars, and a versatile dip that you can re-purpose in all kinds of ways.

Shall we tempt your already-pumpkin spiced taste buds a little more? I say AYE!

If you haven't joined the cookie butter bandwagon yet, this recipe may be a little different for you. But trust me, it's a killer. If you can't get a hold of cookie butter easily, any nut butter will do in a pinch.

With a low sugar option, these dream bars are seriously a dream. Eat up the layers of ginger snaps, coconut, and caramel — so good.

Cardamom is such a good spice for sweet recipes! Trust me, try it. And then eat this with cookies, with fruit, in an ice box cake, or just with a spoon. Heart eyes.

  1. My kid's teacher just asked all the parents to bring in pumpkin treats for their fall festival. After reading this mornings OBH post I was going to Google 'Pumpkin recipes." Thank you for saving me a step.

  2. Does anyone know where I can find non-sweet pumpkin recipes? I can't have sugar anymore, but I love the taste of pumpkin!

    • Try looking for UK recipes, over here pumpkin is most definitely not for dessert! Also, over here the name "pumpkin" is mostly reserved for the big ones you carve at Halloween which aren't so nice to eat so look out for squash recipes too. Try chopping it up and roasting it, making soup, putting it in curry. Pumpkin and sage is a good flavour combination. I once made a yummy salad with roasted squash and blue cheese and walnuts. The BBC food website is very good

    • I agree that soups and curries are my first thought, but carrot or sweet potato recipe can substitute pumpkin; may butternut squash recipes as well. My friend (and chef) Moose Wylde made a sweet potato okra stew that I love making for Thanksgiving and have definitely made with pumpkin when I was growing them in my garden.
