Use it as a veggie dip or sandwich spread for a snack with plenty of healthy fat, protein, and fiber. $4.99, available in grocery stores Oct. 1; cedarsfoods.com.

Jif Whips Whipped Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Pie Spice
Peanut butter—but better for you? Yes, please. Whipped is code for fluffy, kinda like a mash-up of PB and a pumpkin fluffernutter sandwich (if this doesn't exist on Pinterest, it should). And since you're eating more air, 2 tablespoons will only set you back 150 calories vs. the 200 for regular PB. Bring on the sliced apples and pears for dipping! $3.49, available in grocery stores.
