Fall Foods: 4 Amazing Recipes You Need This Fall
Fall is one of the best times of year thanks to the cooling temperatures and delicious flavors. Your favorite fall recipes probably include lots of comfort food, but these recipes are often loaded with empty calories.
What if we told you it was possible to get all of the flavors of fall while also meeting your body’s nutrient needs? We’ve put together a list of four amazing recipes you need this fall.
Protein Sweet Potato Hummus
Sweet potato is one of fall’s biggest flavors, but it’s not only delicious at Thanksgiving. This protein sweet potato hummus is easy to whip up in a food processor.
Combining unsweetened protein powder with roasted sweet potato, garlic, red lentils, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and seasonings, this hummus is bursting with all of the flavors of fall while also providing the smooth consistency you love for dipping.
Unlike traditional hummus, this recipe is packed with protein that will help keep you feeling full and satisfied between meals.
Protein Packed Turkey Chili
As the weather starts to turn cooler, there’s something extra satisfying about a hearty bowl of chili. This recipe for protein-packed turkey chili is a complete meal in a bowl, featuring lean ground turkey, five different types of beans, protein powder, tomatoes, and tons of seasonings.
We recommend making it with iced coffee protein powder (surprising, we know) to add extra depth and flavor, but unsweetened protein powder works well too.
Prefer to stay strictly plant-based? No problem. You can easily omit the ground turkey from this recipe and include a plant-based alternative or just stick to beans. Either way, you’ll get tons of protein and flavor in one bowl.
Pumpkin Collagen Bites
Fall just wouldn’t be the same without pumpkin, but there are lots more ways to incorporate this quintessential fall flavor beyond your latte. These pumpkin collagen bites use a simple no-bake recipe featuring your favorite nut butter, canned pumpkin, collagen peptides, chocolate chips, instant oats, and more for a delicious snack on the go.
Collagen peptides are great for boosting your protein intake while also promoting radiant-looking skin, normal joint health, and strong nails. Pack a couple of these bites next time you’re on the go for a quick and easy snack that will help you stay satisfied between meals.
Cinnamon Roll Baked Protein Oats
There’s nothing quite like a warm, gooey cinnamon roll, but unfortunately, they’re not the healthiest or most satisfying breakfast option. What if we told you that you could get all of the flavor of your favorite cinnamon roll without the empty calories? This recipe for cinnamon roll baked protein oats combines vanilla protein powder with your nut butter of choice, ground cinnamon, rolled oats, applesauce, maple syrup, and yogurt. This recipe is already dairy-free, using oat milk and dairy-free yogurt as ingredients. This creamy oatmeal might just become your go-to breakfast recipe for fall!
