​12 Easy Apple and Pumpkin Recipes to Welcome in the Fall

Fall is officially here! With cooler, colorful autumn days ahead of us, your local apple orchard and pumpkin patch are great places to take your children for some weekend fun. It is always possible that you end up with more apples than you can eat and even a pumpkin or two extra that you won’t get around to carving.

That’s why we’ve put together this list of fun, fall recipe ideas that you can make throughout this fall for a variety of occasions.

All of them are pretty easy to make and we are sure you and your kids will love them.


Perfect Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin Seeds are a classic. You can even use the seeds you take out of your jack-o-lantern and turn them into this delicious and healthy snack!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

These cake like cookies are to die for! After you make them once, your kids will be begging you to make them for the rest of the fall.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes

This muffin recipe is easy to make and doesn’t call for milk, wheat flour, or eggs! If you have a child who has a wheat or dairy allergy, this delicious treat is perfect for them.

Black Bean & Pumpkin Chili

Another staple for fall is chili. Instead of making your go-to chili recipe, why not spice things up with a little bit of pumpkin. After their first helping, ask your kids to see they can identify the hint of pumpkin and make them guess what it is.

No Bake Energy Bites with Pumpkin

Not only are these bite size snacks popular with kids, but they are also healthy and full of energy-boosting ingredients. A few of these are great in a pinch as a snack, breakfast, or dessert.

Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? This specific take on it is a great sweet and savory dinner recipe for a cool autumn day. You can either serve it straight from the stovetop or bake it to crispy perfection in the oven.


Fun Caramel Apples

Have some fun making caramel apples this year by decorating them with chocolate and melted candy designs. Make sure you use room temperature apples though, as the caramel is more likely to slip off chilled apples.

Easy Apple Muffins

This apple recipe is great for your little kitchen helpers. Not only will your kids enjoy making them, but these muffins are seriously delicious to boot!

Cheesy Apple Nachos

While you might not think apple and cheese would go well together, it does! This recipe is a perfect combination of tangy and sweet. If you are looking for a new after school snack, this one is for you. It’s easy, quick and super yummy!

Easy Apple Muesli

This is a great, easy breakfast go-to. If your kids have never had muesli before they might be skeptical to try it. However, once they do, we are confident it will become one of their favorite breakfast options!

Meatballs with Apple Glaze

A fall twist on a household recipe. These delicious meatballs make an excellent appetizer and pair well with other fall foods.

Apple Beet Salad

While it might be hard to convince your child to give this salad a try, it is delicious. What’s even better is that it’s easy to make and keeps for several days if refrigerated.
