Like I said in my post about pumpkin and its nutrients and health benefits? I prefer mine outside of my coffee cup. No offense to the ever-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte 


These days, people also find ways to replace the otherwise unhealthy ingredients with others that are more nutritious, less calorically dense, but similar consistency. Sometimes instead of oil, you can use applesauce! Instead of butter you can use coconut oil! 

Pumpkin does the same thing. Instead of using oil, try using pureed pumpkin! It will add a great consistency, texture, flavor and more nutrition to your recipe than it would have otherwise had if you just threw some oil in there.
