Julie Garden-Robinson, a nutrition specialist and professor at NDSU, recommends using sugar pumpkins when baking.

These pumpkins are smaller than your typical jack-o-lantern and are sold in grocery stores.

“Try pumpkin,” Garden-Robinson said.¬† “Just incorporate it into muffins, pie, and then try some different things like savory soups. Don’t forget to use the seeds too. The seeds are a crunchy snack that is high in vitamins and minerals and try making some of those at home as well.”
