They taste like holiday indulgence but each recipe is trickily healthy for you; so basically these are all the ideal recipes to offset those Halloween candies you just can't resist.

    1. Big Man's World Applesauce Brownies

    These are Paleo, Vegan and Gluten-Free No-Bake Brownies. I recently made my own applesauce from an apple picking adventure, and this was the first recipe I made. It didn't disappoint, and the creamy protein rich frosting was the perfect compliment. Who knew chocolate and apples went together?? Not this girl, but now I'm a true fan.

    2. Plant Based-Maiah's Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

    These are Vegan, Nut-Free and Gluten-Free stacks of gold. These protein plant-based pancakes are fluffy, light and filling, so basically, what every pancake should be. The mini chocolate chips make them taste like a dessert, as does the protein "frosting". With about 315 calories for the whole recipe including the frosting, and a whopping 26 to 28g of protein, this is a winning breakfast OR dessert.

    3. Oh She Glows Mini Pumpkin Tarts

    Gluten-Free Nut-Free Vegan Adorable Tarts. These are a combination of a creamy pumpkin pie atop a delicate cookie. Yes, please! Pro tip: mini tart pans with a removable bottom make tart removal a breeze, and you'll avoid a cookie crumble mess.

    4. Chocolate Covered Katie's Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars

    These gluten-free vegan bars are described as a cross between chocolate chip cookies and homemade pumpkin pie by Katie, and she is not wrong. It's an easy recipe that's sure to be an instant favorite. She also offers tons of substitutions to vary the flavor, so if creativity is your jam, try every delicious option!

    5. Plant-Based Maiah's Pumpkin "Brookies"

    These Plant-Based Vegan Bars are SO good. It's another recipe to use up fresh or canned pumpkin puree as well. Cinnamon spice and pumpkin is the ultimate smell of fall, and the taste of these are just as good, or better than they smell.

    Happy Autumn, and Happy Baking!
