We have highlighted some of our favorite fall recipes that are full of flavor while helping you stay on your health kick.
No-Bake: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Bites
These flavorful snacks allow you to embrace fall flavors in a health-conscious manner.
1-2 bites per serving are recommended to keep this as a healthy recipe.
Servings: 24 bites
1 cup: pitted and dried dates
1/4 cup: honey
2tsp: vanilla extract
1/4 cup: pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
2 Tbsp: ground flax seed
1 tsp: pumpkin pie seasoning
1/8 tsp: sea salt
1.5 cups: old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup: almonds (see notes)
1/4 cup: dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup: dried cranberries (optional)
- In a food processor, add dates, honey, molasses, vanilla, and pumpkin puree. Process on low until ingredients are well blended.
- Add in remaining ingredients and pulse until the mixture forms into a ball. You can swap out the chocolate chips for the dried cranberries or add both for an extra dose of sweetness!
- Roll into small balls (approximately the size of a large grape) and store in the fridge for a couple of weeks or freezer for months.
Side Note: If using almonds. Sliced are recommended. If using whole almonds instead pulse them in the food processor for a moment prior to beginning step one. Set them aside and then re-incorporate during step two. This will prevent large chunks of almond in the finished product.
