There are so many things to love about fall: the beautiful leaves; the chance to pull those cozy sweaters out of the back of the closet; the harvest season with all the fresh fruits and vegetables; and most of all, the fall desserts. Bring on the pumpkin, cinnamon and warm apple cider. Let’s enjoy the taste of fall!

Frosted Zucchini Brownies: You may have received bucket loads of zucchini from friends and neighbors who have grown more than they can handle. And you probably are very tired of zucchini as your vegetable night after night. These brownies are a great way to use it up, and somehow it makes the brownies super rich and decadent. (via Mommy?

Individual Whole Peach Pies: With just a touch of honeycomb (or honey) as the sweetener, these pies let the real peach flavor shine through. The individual pies also give a beautiful presentation. It's almost too beautiful to eat... almost. (via Yummy Mummy Kitchen)

Whole-Wheat Banana Bread: As the air turns chill, who doesn't like to curl up with a blanket, a warm beverage, and a slice of some warm dessert bread? It doesn’t matter what kind: zucchini, pumpkin, banana, they're all great fall flavors. Even better is that this recipe uses whole wheat flour and natural sweeteners of honey and the bananas themselves, and yet it is still so delicious that it's hard to believe it's healthy.
