Looking for a pumpkin treat that’s not the usual pumpkin spice? From crunchy crackers to pie-flavored protein bars and decadent yogurts, there are plenty of fall-flavored snacks in the supermarket that you’ll want to stock up on this season. Instead of grabbing your go-to Starbucks PSL—which packs in a whopping 380 calories and 50 grams of sugar per Grande with 2 percent milk—save yourself from a dietary felony and reach for these better-for-you picks instead.
Here are two posts that I did a little bit ago about the best and the worst pumpkin snacks

Noosa Pumpkin Yogurt
PER 4 OZ: 145 calories, 6 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 55 mg sodium, 16 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 15 g sugar), 6 g protein
Noosa transforms pumpkin pie into the most dessert-like yogurt you’ll love to spoon into this season. The probiotic-rich snack is made with real pumpkin as well as—get this—cream cheese for added creaminess. Because this tub is higher in sugar than the picks I usually recommend, be sure to stick to the four-ounce serving size.
My sister enjoyed this. She said it was sweet but not artificially sweet. She also went on to say that it helped with her sweet tooth. Like I mentioned about sticking to the serving size and my sister did and she said the serving size was plenty.

Crunchmaster Pumpkin Harvest Crackers
PER 14 CRACKERS: 130 calories, 2.5 g fat (0 g saturated fat), 250 mg sodium, 24 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 2 g protein
Whether you’re dipping these into hummus, topping them with rich ricotta, or crushing them into a crispy coating for chicken, you’ll want to stock up on these pumpkin-infused crackers. Crunchmaster bakes its fall-friendly crackers with rice flour—making this snack gluten-free—and keeps the sugar content low.
I paired these crackers with white cheese and I think it paired fairly well. I wouldn’t repurchase these because even though the crackers are good they’re not great for me that is enough for me to pass.
Pumpkin Pie Quest Bar
PER BAR: 190 calories, 8 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 200 mg sodium, 23 g carbs (12 g fiber, 1 g sugar, 7 g erythritol), 21 g protein
This seasonal bar tastes just like your favorite Thanksgiving pie—without all the added fat, sugar, and beltline-busting calories! For just under 200 calories, you’ll get 21 grams of muscle-building protein and 12 grams of satiety-promoting fiber. Talk about a pumpkin treat with benefits! Pop this bar into your gym bag for a quick protein punch.
Even though this is gluten-free and overall not that bad for your waistline. I had eaten one bar and that was enough for me to pass. It upset my stomach. Maybe one of the ingredients didn’t settle well. If you tried this let me know what you think of this bar and would you repurchase it?
Base Culture Pumpkin Bread
PER ⅛ LOAF: 140 calories, 8 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 160 mg sodium, 14 g carbs (2 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 4 g protein
Base Culture’s certified-Paleo pumpkin bread starts with pumpkin as the first and most abundant ingredient before bakers toss in egg, gluten-free cashew flour, maple syrup, golden flax seed, and warm spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Who needs pie when you’ve got this wholesome loaf?
I love love love this bread! It’s filling and it tastes just like pumpkin bread without the guilt! When I see It stocked I stock up. It is a bit pricey at $3 but I think It’s worth it and I recommend when you see it to stock up!
Purely Elizabeth Pumpkin Cinnamon Ancient Grain Granola
PER ⅓ CUP: 140 calories, 6 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 105 mg sodium, 17 g carbs (2 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 4 g protein
Transform your morning parfaits and homemade trail mix with Purely Elizabeth’s superfood-packed granola. The organic, gluten-free mix of oats, quinoa, millet, and amaranth are baked with low-glycemic coconut sugar, brain-boosting coconut oil, and chia seeds for a snack that’s packed with healthy fats and fiber.
It Is a bit pricey and I don’t think it’s worht It! But for a pumpkin granola It Is just ok.
Flapjacked Maple Pumpkin Mighty Muffin
PER MUFFIN: 200 calories, 4 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 350 mg sodium, 24 g carbs (6 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 20 g protein
A muffin that won’t lend you a muffin top? We’re totally in! Flapjacked’s muffin in a cup is made with real pumpkin, gluten-free oat flour, and protein coming from both whey and peas for a total of 20 grams of the muscle-building protein.
