138 Leftover Canned Pumpkin Recipes You’ll Love

Have some leftover canned pumpkin that you need to use up? Here are 138 recipes that use pumpkin puree including breakfasts, bread, and savory dishes.

One of my biggest pet peeves when I’m cooking or eating out is wasted food.

I hate throwing food away!

But sometimes if can be difficult to know how to use up those leftover ingredients.

This is especially true for canned pumpkin!

Maybe you only needed part of the can for your pie recipe and now you have a cup or more of pumpkin puree sitting around that you don’t want to go to waste.

Below are over 130 recipes you can use that leftover pumpkin in. And all of them require less than a 15 ounce can so you’ll be sure to find 1 (or 2!) recipes that fit the amount you have left.

You’ll find everything from pancakes to sweet breads and even some savory dishes, including several gluten-free, vegan, low-carb, and dairy-free options. There are no pumpkin pie recipes, because that’s most likely what you used the pumpkin puree in to begin with!


How long does pumpkin puree last?

Leftover canned pumpkin puree will last 5-7 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

If you’ve made your own pumpkin puree, you should use that up within 3-5 days.

Can I freeze pumpkin puree?


The best way is to spray some muffin tins with cooking spray and scoop 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup amounts into the cups. Pop the pan into the freezer and once the mounds are solid, you can transfer them to a freezer safe plastic bag.

Frozen pumpkin puree will keep indefinitely in the freezer, but is best when used within 3 months.

Make your pumpkin pie now and freeze the rest to make one of these delicious recipes in a few months!

How do you know if leftover pumpkin puree has gone bad?

With most foods, it’s best to smell and inspect the appearance.

If the pumpkin puree has a strange odor or is growing mold, it’s time to throw it out.

And if you’re ever debating on whether the food is still good or not, it’s better to be safe than risk food poisoning.
