Pumpkin Pie Spice

Yes, Fall is definitely here for good. You feel a delightful crispness in the air, the kind where you sense the distinct change of seasons. It’s exciting when the seasons do change, even if I’m not in school I still get that “back to school” feeling and look forward to a rejuvenation of some sort. It’s like you wipe your hands clean from the old ways, and get ready for a fresh start. It’s a relaxing feeling making lists and goals of things you are looking forward to do within the next few months. I always say it’s a new season, so yes switch up your look, but above all else it’s a time to embark on new experiences….

Now, I’ve been so fixated on loving spring weather and the attitude of summer that I’ve overlooked the fact that I do enjoy fall. I love the the trees become beautiful rich gems, especially here on the northeast, the new fashion and comforting flavors that bring loved ones together. My favorite is of course Pumpkin! After my first bite of it several years ago, I was hooked. Yes, it’s a versatile fall favorite pairing sweetly and savory with endless options, but it also is jam-packed with nutritious benefits. It’s low in calories, Antioxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Carotene, and the seeds are rich in fiber…just to name a few.Pumpkin Pie Spice
Naturally my days consist of making everything taste like this delectable fall vegetable and so I decided to whip up a large batch of my favorite pumpkin pie spice that I use come Thanksgiving. It’s become quite handy when brewing my own pumpkin spice latte and these healthy no-bake pumpkin oatmeal raisin bites.

Add this Pumpkin Pie Spice to just about anything you want, and trust me you’ll instantly feel warm and fuzzy inside! Yesterday, I mentioned a few national food holidays, well today is National Peanut Day so here are a few of my recently pinned peanut pumpkin recipes…Pumpkin PB OatsPumpkin PB French Toast, Pumpkin Peanut SoupSweet Potato Peanut Stew, Gluten Free Pumpkin PB Cookies
