5 Diabetes-Friendly Pumpkin Spice Recipes for This Fall

It is the season of the pumpkin spice, meaning that everywhere you look, you will find pumpkin spiced fillintheblankhere.

Well, why not work up some of that pumpkin spice magic in your own home? In fact, it’s not a bad idea as cinnamon can help regulate blood glucose. So it seems that this is a trend that you can fully stand behind.

For your own glucose lowering deliciousness, give these five recipes a try.


1. Pumpkin Spice Coconut Latte

The name basically speaks for itself as all the ingredients are right in it. But what you don’t know is that this latte also has pumpkin puree. Yup. And it is whisked right into the frothy coconut milk, only to be sprinkled with delicious pumpkin spice. Add steaming hot espresso, and you’ve got yourself a sexy latte.

2. Pumpkin Spiced Paleo Granola

This is a granola that you should basically try to incorporate into your kitchen year round. It is jam-packed with healthy stuff, making it just as much as a healthy snack as a sneaky one. Sprinkle it over Greek yogurt or pair it with ripe berries. You will love how healthy tastes.


3. Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

Just like the granola above, these muffins are filled with wholesome ingredients. Old-fashioned oats for fiber, coconut oil for healthy fats, and raw honey for all the enzymes. Add to that the fact that it tastes freakin’ awesome, thanks to all that pumpkin-themed spice. Finally, a muffin recipe that is safe for people with diabetes.

4. Mini Pumpkin Pies

These are the cutest little pies, and the best part is that THEY ARE SUPER HEALTHY. Cashew butter and dates give it the sweet, creamy texture that we know and love in pumpkin pie. Shredded bits of coconut give it another layer of flavor and crunch. They are perfectly proportioned, high in protein, and loaded with healthy fats. Dessert wins again.

5. Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Chili

Now, this recipe is my all-time favorite, and I really can’t think of a better way to combine sweet and savory. It is plant-based, making it good for your entire body. But don’t let that lead you to think that it’s not filling. All the beans and the pumpkin make it an incredibly satisfying meal. A little bit of cinnamon and a little bit of chili powder bring it all together.
