Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Bites | Meg Unprocessed

Dessert doesn't have to be decadent to be delicious! Try these out for your Thanksgiving meal, or any night this coming week.

Thanksgiving can be a lot of work with the cooking, baking, cleaning, washing dishes! These Pumpkin Pie Bites are a quick and easy recipe and they make a yummy healthy dessert or snack.

They taste like pumpkin pie without all the work that goes into making a pie! They're also a lot better for you than most pumpkin pies as they have no refined sugar but are  packed with nourishing ingredients like oats, real pumpkin and flaxseed.

Need more pumpkin in your life? Check out this recipe for a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte and homemade pumpkin spice to add to all the goodies you create at home.  

If you don't have a food processor to make the pumpkin pie bites with, this recipe for pumpkin energy balls might be a little easier to make!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor and process until a dough-like texture is formed. You may have to stop and scrape the ingredients off the side a few times.

  • Place dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour as this makes them easier to roll.

  • Using your hands, roll them into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I like to store them in the freezer but I suggest even putting them in there for an hour before serving so they have time to set.

  • Store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for a couple months.
