Banana and pumpkin muffins
Thanks to the global pandemic, we’ve all got our banana bread recipe down. Time for a fall-inspired upgrade. Swap out half your bananas for pumpkin puree. Add a little pumpkin spice to the batter if you want to up the fall flavor. For picky eaters, stick to a plain version.
Pumpkin French toast
Give your breakfast a fall feeling with these tasty toast fingers.
- Slice your bread into 1-inch square fingers. (Tip: a nice dense bread that is not too fresh works best!)

- Soak the bread fingers in the egg mixture.
- Place the eggy fingers in a warm pan and fry for about two minutes on each side or until golden.
