Who says holiday treats have to be “bad” for you?  Try my Healthy No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites!

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites

Hello! Hello!

Can y’all believe how quickly we cruised through October?  I can’t!  With Halloween this weekend and Thanksgiving less than 28 days away <—YES, I just did that! I know I’m going to need some ways to keep my energy level up though all the madness.  Speaking of the end of the month, who’s in for the Best of Blogs linkup tomorrow?!

Now I love candy as much as the next girl, and in the sake of moderation I’m not suggesting you completely deprive yourself of some this Halloween. What I am suggesting is keeping some more fulfilling, nourishing treats in the fridge to have most of the time.

Like my Healthy No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites.

These babies provide the kind of fuel that keep you full for hours, not make you hungry again in 10 minutes.  Indulge in a few treats and then go back to stuff like this.

They are naturally sweet using dates and unsweetened coconut.

I added some dark chocolate chips to mine… because when in doubt I always add chocolate… but you can leave them off as well.  I also dunked them in extra coconut… because that’s how I roll… but once again feel free to adjust to your personal taste.

My Healthy No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites somehow come out tasting perfectly pumpkin-y.  It’s crazy how versatile dates are.

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites

Store the Healthy No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites in the fridge for a healthy bite to get a boost of energy or hold your rumbling belly over until meal time.  It’s so nice to have snacks like these in the fridge, especially this time of year when there seems to be food everywhere.

Eat yourself or share with friends!  Either way they will quickly become a favorite.

  • Remove the mixture from the food processor and fold in the chocolate chip.

    These look delicious! I loveeee no bake bites but I don’t think I’ve ever made them with pumpkin before!

    These sound great! I’ve been collected little bite snack recipes like this so I can make a different batch each week so I don’t go for something unhealthy.
    “because when in doubt I always add chocolate” That’s totally my mantra =)

      What a great idea! So much better than grabbing candy.

    I love anything that’s no bake….and pumpkin pie flavored….with chocolate chips 😛

    YES, I add chocolate too when in doubt, because it seems to always add that extra oomph of delicious flavor. These are so cute, and it would be a wonderful sweet treat.

    It’s always a good idea to add some
    dark chocolate ( smile ).

    I dare you to throw these at my face and see how many land in my mouth. Don’t worry about the ones that don’t make it, I’m saving them for later 😀

    We made some of these the other day too. Such a good way to use up pumpkin and get a little energy boost too.

      I totally agree! Thanks Dannii. Hope you are feeling ok.
