Pumpkin is one of those flavors that has the power to instantly erase any type of healthy diet plan I’d been apsiring to follow. It’s one of my favorite things about this time of year.

Pinterest certainly isn’t helping my obsession any. Crazy talented bakers are coming up with delicious ways to make new pumpkin treats and they all make me want to stuff face. Buh-bye pumpkin pie, these pumpkin-tastic desserts are running you out of town! I mean, how can you compete with a Pumpkin S’more Donut Muffin?! Answer, you can’t.


Must-Bake Pumpkin-tastic Desserts:

1. Pumpkin Creme Brulee {gluten free!}
2. Pumpkin Donuts topped with Buttermilk Spiced Glaze
3. Pumpkin S’more Donut-Muffin
4. Pumpkin “Dream” Cake with Cinnamon Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
5. Vegan Pumpkin and Currant Bread with Cashew Frosting

Please make one of these oh, so delicious desserts for Thanksgiving. I’m dying to live vicariously through you. I’m going to whip up a batch of the Vegan Pumpkin Bread. Not nearly as tempting as the donuts or the cake but I’m trying to steer clear of eating seven hot pumpkin donuts fresh off the frier or licking the bowl of Cinnamon Maple Cream Cheese Frosting!

I’ll be sure to let you know how the bread turns out! And just because I can’t stop, you should also check out this Pumpkin Ricotta Cheesecake with Grand Marnier Whipped Cream– holy dessert heaven, is that you?
