I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but in Alabama, it has been cooling down into autumn territory. The leaves in trees are changing colors, pumpkins are everywhere, and everyone is already hearing Christmas carols. Joy.
However, I am of the camp that firmly believes that you don’t jump from Halloween to Christmas without acknowledging Thanksgiving. While I am not a fan of its origins, I love the excuse to throw a feast and the opportunity to spend time with loved ones. So, grab your utensils and pass the gravy, because we are diving into healthy Thanksgiving desserts.
Spiralized Apple Crumble
One of the downsides to making an apple crumble is the constant chopping up and peeling of apples. It is time-consuming, messy, and requires the handling of a large knife. Enter this version of the recipe, which makes use of the spiralizer, a device that exists for the sole purpose of making curly fries. This recipe appeals to my lazy side already. It also takes little prep time and makes use of healthy ingredients such as oats, apples, cinnamon, and almonds. Click on the photo below to check it out.
Maple Cupcakes with Pumpkin Pie Frosting
If you don’t know what to do with your extra pumpkin or maple syrup, then there is no need to fear, because this recipe makes good use of both those things. This recipe has sugar free options and other substitutions to achieve the same results as you would with baking regular cupcakes and makes use of seasonal ingredients with the added zest of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
