To celebrate the first days of fall, we’ve rounded up our favorite healthy pumpkin food items that are available at many grocery stores! If we’re being honest, we’ve been looking forward to this day since the temperatures dropped dramatically in early September. While we’re not as wild about the cold weather, it’s never too early to stock the pantry with pumpkin spice snacks.
Every year we secretly celebrate the return of pumpkin infused products. As much as we love the summer, we love pumpkin spice. Our team also loves to scour health food stores to find easy, healthy snacks that fit our gluten-free, dairy-free, and low sugar lifestyle. Illustration by Chloe Hearts Art
Here's our 2020 healthy pumpkin snack lineup. What did we miss?
Our team goes crazy for all things Califa Farms, and this pumpkin creamer is no exception. It's thick, like half and half, but it's dairy-free! The pumpkin flavor is strong without being overpowering.
We keep Purely Elizabeth Granola on hand at photoshoots because it's our favorite thing to snack on. Most our team is gluten-free, so we're excited to find an option that suits our needs and incorporates pumpkin spice! Bonus: it's vegan!
Not only did Larabars get us through our respective experimentations with Whole30, but they taste amazing at all times. Pro tip: keep in the fridge and try all the seasonal flavors - they bring an extra dessert element beyond the year-round options.
We are 100% guilty of stocking up on this baking mix and making it all year long. While we prefer the muffin version, you can't go wrong with a good loaf! Add Stevia sweetened dark chocolate chips.
This recommendation comes from founder Kelsey, who is a total sucker for tasty, gluten-free freezer waffles (at all hours of the day... and night). Her stamp of approval is all we need!
We just discovered this brand in the refrigerated version and our whole team has been enjoying this every morning! Is there such thing as too many seasonal creamers? We think not :)
Anyone interested in healthy alternatives for nightly ice cream sessions knows that Halo Top is one of the best. We love the dairy-free line made with coconut milk and the pumpkin pie flavor is Thanksgiving level good.
Sweet potato everything, please and thank you. These chips have a sweet and salty flavor from cinnamon and nutmeg that is so addicting and perfect for fall. We recommend getting 2 bags, you won't want to share.
This seasonal variety from RX Bar is perfect for the health conscious, pumpkin spice lover on-the-go. While some find RX bars a bit too chewy for their liking, we enjoy the twist the fall spice brings to the OG basic ingredient bar.
Chai Tea is a warm weather essential made better with pumpkin spice. Make a tea latte with this for a healthy version of the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Because our Paleo friends deserve delicious granola to snack on, this grain-free option is flavorful and adds nice texture on top of our favorite yogurt.
If you eat dairy yogurt, Siggi's is the way to go. This high-quality Icelandic yogurt is high-protein and low sugar. The pumpkin spice flavor tastes amazing with the granola we recommended!
Let's be honest, we have enough variables spiking our cortisol in 2020 and sometimes our systems deserve a break from coffee. This is our go-to when we're trying to avoid cortisol rushes and caffeine crashes, but want to maintain our beloved warm beverage morning ritual. Crio Bru is a coffee alternative that tastes and brews just like it.
