The simplest Halloween breakfast or snack is Pumpkin Toast! They’re only three ingredients, healthy for you and not to mention super duper cute.
Toast. Just a slice of lovely, crispy on the outside — fluffy on the inside — goodness. While there are an unlimited number of ways to dress up your toast in the morning, sometimes I find that the simplest approaches are the most preferred — especially by kids.
With Halloween right around the corner, I’ve been experimenting with a bunch of new pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin butter is one of my fall favorites, so one morning after making my first batch of the season, I took a heaping spoonful and dolloped it on top of a warm slice of just-out-of-the-toaster crusty deliciousness. With the back of the spoon I quickly fashioned the pumpkin butter into a pumpkin shape, which was enough to get my kids excited. Don’t judge me too harshly for then grabbing a bag of chocolate chips at 7:30am to make the Jack O’Lantern face. I couldn’t help myself. You can easily substitute raisins for the chocolate, but what’s Halloween without some sweets?
This easy to make yet heartwarming pumpkin toast morning treat should get everyone’s morning started off right. I love making recipes for easy, cute toasts. When it’s not halloween, go for these adorable Animal Face Toast Sandwiches. Or simply make Avocado Toast, Savory Toast 8 Ways, or 2 Ingredient Toast 6 Ways. When you’ve got toast as your base, you can’t go wrong. The possibilities are endless!
Pumpkin anything is my go-to this time of year too so I’m always dreaming up more recipes for the pumpkin puree in my pantry. We’re cycling through some of our favorite like Pumpkin Pie Parfaits, Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes, Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts, and Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins to name a few.
