Chai pumpkin churros

Chai pumpkin churros are essential when the festive season is here. I know churros more as “dough fills” from my childhood. They are a whole other post by themselves and I’m sure going to get up all nostalgic about them, but for now churros, my friends. Not only do these totally vegan churros taste super delish, coated in sugar and dipped in chocolate, but these churros have two special ingredients. Homemade chai spice and sweet mashed pumpkin. Yes, these are super special churros for a super special time of the year!

Pumpkin s’mores cheesecake

Pumpkin s’mores cheesecake is the elegant spin on the typical pumpkin pie. It’s light and airy, yes with the graham cracker crust that gives that spicy tang that you get from the good old pumpkin pie. I remember I made my very first pumpkin pie a couple years ago and that version went straight into the dustbin. This cheesecake in fact is absolutely yumm and it’s certainly one I’ll be making again and again! 

Cinnamon sugar pumpkin fritters

Cinnamon sugar pumpkin fritters are vegan and oh so delicious! I was so surprised by these fritters that I made them two days in a row and even my better half could not tell the difference. They are crunchy on the outside and super soft and chewy. They remind me so much of my mother’s pumpkin fritters that we would have for Sunday lunch and I think even she would approve.
