My favorite gluten free pumpkin recipes

It may still feel like summer, but it's officially fall and despite the warm temperatures I'm seeing pumpkins everywhere. What do I do when I see pumpkins? I think about all my wonderful seasonal pumpkin recipes. 


If you are in the pumpkin eating mood too, I'm sharing some of my favorite tried and true recipes. I like recipes that are health giving, easy, versatile and gluten free or grain free of course! Most of my recipes also meet Paleo standards.

Recipe #1

Kids of all ages love these pumpkin cakes. They are moist and delicious and provide a substantial amount of protein. And they are flourless, making them grain free. Pack one in a school lunchbag for a treat that is healthy and provides lots of real food nourishment.

It doesn't get easier than this pumpkin pie that is made in the blender! It's also grain free, vegan, healthy, and delicious. You can feel good when you know you are eating real food.

All my recipes meet gluten free or grain free standards and many are dairy free and Paleo as well. 

There are still many pumpkin recipes that I'm experimenting with and posting later this season: So be on the lookout for them.
  • pumpkin rice pudding, 
  • stuffed pumpkin 
  • pumpkin smoothies
  • Pumpkin cookies
  • Pumpkin Chili 
  • There is no end to the variety of pumpkin recipes that can be made for the season. I'll be posting more pumpkin recipes soon. 

Although pumpkin itself is a bland vegetable, pumpkin spices are outrageous and create a sensational taste sensation in pumpkin recipes. In addition, you can substitute cooked and mashed butternut squash or cooked and mashed sweet potato for most of the pumpkin in the recipes recipes- just don't omit the wonderful spices!

  1. Hi Judee!
    Thank you for sharing these recipes on The Hungry Linkparty! I love pumpkins, so this is really fits for me right now!:))
    -Love, Anna

    1. I think everyone is thinking pumpkin right now and there are so many wonderful recipes to make with it. Glad to join your party

  2. You better believe my apartment is going to smell like one GIANT PUMPKIN TOMORROW -aka I will be making at least 3 of these recipes! ;)

  3. Great list of pumpkin related foods for people who can't have gluten, some of these recipes look delicious.

    1. You are so right. Just because something is suitable for people with gluten sensitivities to eat, it doesn't mean that everyone won't enjoy the recipe.

  4. These all sound delicious! :)

  5. Great list :) I have never tried pumpkins I wish someone would make me something yummy :)

    Thanks for linking up #CreativeMondays

    1. I think it's difficult working with a real pumpkin because its time consuming to cook. Have you ever had canned pumpkin?

  6. Today I can say that it is fall here! It's 60 degrees! Nice pumpkin round up, Jude. I love the looks of that tart and think the ginger snap crust paired with pumpkin sounds irresistible. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Hi Judee, I think, I would be happy with any of these recipes. I have been cooking through fruits and veggies and I am up to broccoli, carrots and apple. I made a fabulous cabbage kugel and a cherry bread pudding, this morning. I hope to post them after the first days.

    Chag Sameach to you and yours.

    1. Interesting concept to cook with the alphabet .. I'm working on a soup idea with that

  8. Hum, not sure what to try first, maybe the coconut flour pumpkin loaf. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop! I hope you’ll join us again next week!
