6 Ways to Eat Pumpkin for Breakfast

Start the day off right with these pumpkin-inspired recipes!

Try these pumpkin raisin muffins for breakfast on the next cool Autumn morning!

Here at Skinny Ms., we’re huge fans of the fall season. Something about that crisp, chilly air and rainbow-colored leaves make the season truly magical. Perhaps one of our all-time favorite things about fall, however, is that the season makes it socially acceptable to eat all things pumpkin, all the time.

Stop reserving the enormous orange fruit for pumpkin pies and cakes! Rather, the savory squash offers enough versatility to incorporate into basically any meal! In fact, pumpkin might even taste arguably better when eaten for breakfast.

That’s why we’ve gathered up our top picks for breakfast recipes that spotlight the powerful pumpkin. Can you imagine anything better than waking up to the mouthwatering aroma of pull-apart pumpkin muffins or dark chocolate pumpkin oatmeal? We didn’t think so- the fabulous fruit adds incredible depth of flavor and a subtle sweetness to these morning meals, and we promise it’ll make getting up a whole lot easier.

And as a bonus, pumpkin actually ranks high on our list of incredible superfoods. Low in calories and packed with filling fiber, this fruit offers a bunch of health benefits, from helping your heart to improving your skin.

Time to get pumped for pumpkin season! Because these crave-worthy breakfast dishes will give you that delicious dose of fall comfort.
