No Bake Pumpkin Treats

No Bake Pumpkin Treats Raleigh Moms Blog

Pumpkin season has definitely arrived, as evidenced by all the seasonal treats and goodies available at the local food markets and grocery stores. While I can’t vouch for the nutritional value of pumpkin flavored pretzels, I can tell you canned pumpkin is actually fairly nutritious. Pumpkin is packed full of vitamin A (beta-carotene), which supports healthy vision, cell growth in most organs and may even help prevent some cancers. I do love to bake up a fresh batch of pumpkin muffins, but sometimes a quick no-bake treat is just as good…if not better. Scroll on for a few of our favorite no-bake pumpkin treats! These easy-as-pie (actually easier!) recipes, are made with a few simple ingredients and are sure to satisfy even the pickiest pumpkin eaters.
