Snack time this fall is looking pretty delicious.
Nearly everywhere you turn this time of year, there’s a coffee shop enticing you in with the promise of indulgence in that perennial favorite fall flavor, pumpkin spice. While all those sugar-laden lattes, scones, muffins, cupcakes and cookies might taste great, they can seriously derail your healthy eating goals. For example, Starbucks’ dipped pumpkin scone has enough calories for a meal, 9 grams of sat fat, and a shocking 43 grams of sugar.
But thanks to Amazon's practically infinite selection, you can stock up on tons of healthy pumpkin-spice treats without even leaving the house. We scoured their pages for 10 of the most delicious goodies you can get by tomorrow (or maybe even this afternoon), if you’re an Amazon Prime member.

Made with real pumpkin and whole nuts, these seasonal bars have only 5 grams of sugar, and no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols. This box on Amazon includes a dozen bars, so the whole family can enjoy them as a grab-and-go healthy snack that also has 4 grams of satiating protein.
Base Culture Mini Nutty Pumpkin Bread, $2.99
These delicious mini pumpkin bread loaves are paleo and made with simple ingredients you’d find in your own kitchen, like pumpkin, egg, honey, maple syrup and flaxseed meal. Each package technically contains two servings, so enjoy half for 140 calories, 8g of fat, 10g of sugar and 4 grams of protein.
Nuts ’N More Spiced Pumpkin Pie Peanut Spread, $11.99
This creamy spread tastes like fall on a spoon, with an added boost of 11g of protein per 2-tablespoon serving. It also has 11 grams of healthy fats (and only 2g of sat fat) from the first ingredient, peanuts. Use it sparingly like a frosting on bananas, oatmeal or rice cakes for a sweet treat.
Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder, Pumpkin Spice, $44.99
Turn your protein shake into a fall smoothie with this limited-edition pumpkin spice protein supplement.

2-Pack Cherryvale Farms Pumpkin Spice Bread Baking Mix, $16.99
Just add water, oil (or sub applesauce) and a can of pumpkin to this festive mix, which bakes up into delectable little muffins or a 9x5-inch loaf that’s a perfect pairing for mid-morning coffee.

Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Holidrizzle Pumpkin Spice Kettle Corn, $3.68
Forget the frantic search at every Target within a 10-mile radius and order Angie’s latest coveted holiday flavor on Amazon. While this isn’t exactly a health food, the gluten-free kettle corn is made with non-GMO, whole-grain popcorn and has a pretty short ingredient list. A 1.25-cup serving has 140 calories, 8g of fat (3 of sat fat) and 11 grams of sugar, so indulge as an occasional treat—and watch your portion size.
