12+ Healthy Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

I know it's still August... but the weather is starting to turn already and I'm way more interested in Chai tea and slippers than I have been in months.... I really don't want summer to be over because I know I wont be getting out on my Paddle board nearly as often, especially if I don't get a wetsuit or something to keep me warm in the fall months! 

We are heading out on what could be our last camping trip of the season this weekend and rain is predicted.... but we will make the best of it and try to get some Paddle Boarding in as well!   

I thought I'd share some healthy Pumpkin Recipes to get you inspired for the coming grey months and school days.  I'm looking forward to making a batch of Pumpkin Scones soon, I know how much the boys love them.  

I hope make these last few Day's of August count!  Fingers crossed for sunshine :)
