75+ Grain-Free, Paleo Pumpkin Recipes


75+ Grain-free, Paleo, Pumpkin Recipes

Pumpkin all the things!

Now that it’s officially fall, I feel like I’m finally allowed to let go of the notion that there is any summer left, and I can enjoy all that autumn has to offer. It feels a little wrong to me to be sipping a pumpkin spiced latte when the leaves on the tree haven’t started to change. But, now that the autumnal equinox has past, I can officially PUMPKIN ALL THE THINGS. It happens every year – last year, it was just the latte and the pie. But this year, I unearthed a LOT, and I do mean A LOT of grain-free pumpkin recipes – probably enough to turn you orange! So if you enjoy this season gourd, check these out. (If you happen upon this and it’s not pumpkin season, you can always use canned pumpkin or even other squashes in its place!)
