Don't worry, it happens to everyone—you get so excited when you start to see pumpkin-flavored everything in the grocery store that you buy as much pumpkin puree as your college student budget allows. But then questions start to creep in. What to do with all that leftover pumpkin purée? A person can only eat so much pumpkin pie before it loses its novelty. Plus, pumpkin is a fruit, so shouldn't it be healthy?

Now, when you overdo it on the pumpkin I have your back. Here are some foolproof recipes for all occasions to help you get your pumpkin fix:

1. Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats
