Ok, it’s time! I’m going to give you the recipe for the delicious little morsels that I released a few days ago! These raw little bites of heaven started out as something I thought was going to be a big flop and turned into perfection. I was so pleased with the taste, I couldn’t wait to share them with friends and co-workers and boy were they a hit! Packed with the perfect combos of fall, these pumpkin balls are flavorful, pungent, and calling your name to come back for 1 more (or 2 or 3)!
If you choose to made these lovely little treats, don’t panic when your batter feels too wet during your rolling process. That is what it is supposed to feel like! This recipe DOES require a full 12 hour to chill in the refrigerator for best results. Once they have set, keep chilled unless serving. They will keep for ~5-7 days chilled!
Jazz up your pumpkin balls with any added flavors you feel you’d enjoy. You may also roll them in different topping before chilling such as ground or chopped nuts, coconut, coco powder, peanut butter powder, etc. Please share any interesting or delicious flavor combinations that you find! Enjoy 🙂
Raw Pumpkin Pie Balls
- 1.5 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup honey
- 3/4 regular 12oz can pumpkin puree
- 3 Tbsp PB2
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- little less than 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I broke mine down a little more in a bag before using to get smaller, finer pieces)
- 1/3-1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine all your ingredients until your oats are moistened. Yes, the batter will seem overly wet. It’s ok!!
Roll your batter into small 1/2-1 in balls (a little smaller than a ping pong ball). Place on wax paper on a flat surface such as a plate or tray and refrigerate over-night or for at least 12 hours. These delectable little treats are free of animal products as well as gluten (trace amount of oats in each ball should be fine in small quantities!). Serve at a Halloween party, as an after school snack for your kids, or just as a delicious finish to a perfect fall day. I hope you try them! Please let me know what you think!
