You will not believe these are actually good for you once you taste them! Hokey Pete, these are delicious! These cookies are full of great ingredients like oats, honey, almond butter, and almonds. Of course with it being the season for all things pumpkin, the main ingredient is PUMPKIN! Pumpkin is so great for you, and that is a blessing since it is SO yummy!
Look at all those great benefits! I LOVE when there is a food that tastes so good for you, is versatile, and is actually good for you!
Anyway, these pumpkin bites will not disappoint! If you are in the mood for no bake cookies, but don’t want to put a bunch of junk in your body, then look no further than these precious little bites!
NO BAKE PUMPKIN BITES
- 3 cups gluten free oats
- 3/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips or cacao nibs
- 1 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- pinch of stevia
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup almond butter
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup raw honey
- 1/2 Tbsp. alcohol free vanilla
- 3-7 Tbsp. almond meal
1.) In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients except the almond meal and mix well. Add the wet ingredients and stir until completely mixed together.
2.) Add the almond meal 1 Tbsp. at a time until the mixture is at your desired consistency (you want to be able to roll it into balls – so not to sticky and wet, but not too dry either)
3.) Roll into balls that are about 1 inch in diameter, and place the balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
4.) Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 1-2 hours, then take out and place the balls in an air tight container and store in the refrigerator, or you can store them in the freezer, depending on how “frozen” you like them when you eat them.
Oh my gosh, these are so good!
Seriously, I could eat the whole batch!
Good thing they are good for me! Enjoy! 🙂
