Healthy Fall Vegan Treat

baked pumpkin

Today I turned a pumpkin into a snack. I had my husband taste it because he’s much pickier than I am and he said it was good so here it is:

1 small pumpkin, cut in half, seeds and strings removed

maple syrup

a few dashes of cinnamon

a few dashes of powdered ginger

a handful of unsalted, chopped roasted peanuts

4 chopped mint leaves

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pour maple syrup into the pumpkin cavity so that the bottom is covered, but don’t fill too high. Add cinnamon and ginger. Mix spices and syrup in the pumpkin with a spoon. Cook for 30 minutes. Cool slightly. Add chopped peanuts and mint. Eat with a spoon.
