9 Paleo Pumpkin Spice Recipes Because It’s Finally PSL Season
Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger — is it even fall without the warm, inviting scent of pumpkin spice? Fortunately, you don’t have to skip on this crowd-pleasing spice just because you’re living a healthy lifestyle. Say hello to cooler temperatures with these better-for-you treats, including a pumpkin spice latte that won’t wreck your blood sugar and a paleo pumpkin pie that everyone will love. Remember, if you make one of these recipes, snap a pic and tag Bulletproof!
The problem with traditional pumpkin spice lattes is that they’re loaded with excess sugar, which isn’t part of a balanced diet. The Bulletproof pumpkin spice latte is different. It’s made with naturally sweetened pumpkin puree, vanilla and coconut milk, plus quality fats from Bulletproof Brain Octane oil and Bulletproof Grass-Fed Ghee. Want it sweeter? Add xylitol or stevia, two alternative sweeteners that won’t give you a sugar crash.
Who says pumpkin spice is just for desserts? Start your day on an awesome note with healthy fats, protein and fiber to keep you full and satisfied. This recipe is a great way to sneak more veggies into your diet: Cauliflower and zucchini make the smoothie creamy and thick, without tasting like a salad. Instead, it’s sweetened with Bulletproof Vanilla Collagen Protein, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, coconut milk and a low-glycemic sugar substitute like stevia.
These pancakes taste like they belong in a luxurious Sunday morning spread, but they’re ultra-easy to make on a weekday: Just throw all the ingredients into a blender and cook in a buttered skillet. Serve them with a generous helping of grass-fed butter — yum.

Looking for a wholesome treat that tastes gourmet but takes just 10 minutes to mix together? This recipe is for you. These scones are sweet, light and made for dunking on a fall morning.
