Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 + 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup medjool dates, tightly packed (~14 dates)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, not pie filling
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger, or less if you don’t like pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Add oats, dates, peanut butter, pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt to the base of a food processor.
  2. Process ingredients until a sticky, nearly-smooth dough forms. The dough should be pinch-able and stick together when you press it with your hands.
  3. Transfer the dough to a large bowl. Add mini chocolate chips and mix to combine.
  4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Store pumpkin energy balls in an airtight container. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • If your dough is too dry and having a difficult time sticking together, add 1/2 to 1 tbsp water or melted coconut oil and process again. This will add more moisture and the dough should easily come together.
  • If you aren’t a fan of pumpkin spice, use less ginger or omit it completely.
