A round up of our own family favourite fall inspired recipes, including ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and more!
Happy Friday! Big plans for the weekend? I’m excited to finally have nothing scheduled. This past month has been so hectic for us, and it’s nice to be able to putter around the house, catch up on a few projects and, perhaps, do some canning.
Although it’s still hot in some parts of the country, we’re experiencing cooler temperatures around here lately. I don’t mind, since it’s a good excuse to drink pumpkin spice lattes! And, it also means getting back in the kitchen and whipping up some fall inspired recipes. It’s definitely worthwhile with all of the fresh produce that’s readily available.
Fall Inspired Recipes
To get you inspired for your own meal planning, I’m sharing some simple and delicious fall recipes that will fill you up and keep you warm. To me, fall is all about comfort food. Enjoy!
Fall Breakfast and Snack Ideas

Although I enjoy my morning smoothies, on colder days I prefer to eat this Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Pudding. It’s convenient to whip up a batch, keep in the fridge, then simply heat in the morning. Filling and delicious!
Pumpkin Oat Muffins
My go-to fall muffin recipe! These Pumpkin Oat Muffins are super moist, delicious and packed full of protein and fibre. Perfect for a quick breakfast or to enjoy with your afternoon coffee or tea.

These Mini Chai Scones are a bit sweet, a bit spicy, and a whole lot tasty! A good compromise to cutting back on carbs while still getting your fix.
