Raw Vegan Pumpkin Bites

Happy Sunday everyone! This past week one of my co-workers showed me a recipe for pumpkin balls which got me motivated to start my pumpkin creations a little early this year! I didn’t quite have everything I needed for that recipe, so of course I took the liberty of creating something a little different on my own. They are easy, and keep in the refrigerator for 5-7 days (they get better as they sit!). I have used them as little energy bites before a few of my runs this week, and they have sat really well in my tummy during the runs which was an extra plus for this recipe! I hope you try them and let me know what you think!

Raw Vegan Pumpkin Bites (makes 24-28 balls)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsalted PB
  • 3/4 of 1, 15oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Form small balls with your hands (about the size of a gum ball or a little smaller). Put your pumpkin bites into the refrigerator for about an hour then remove and smooth over by rolling them again in your hands (the mixture will initially be fairly sticky; once they have sat for about an hour, they are much easier to form and smooth). Keep your pumpkin bites covered in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. Enjoy!
