  • {Makes about 40 Balls}
  • 3 cups dry, uncooked oatmeal (I used gluten-free thick cut oats)
  • 15 oz. all-natural Pumpkin Puree
  • 3/4 cup all-natural Peanut butter, or Almond butter
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 Tbsps shredded, unsweetened coconut, OR ground flax seeds (if ‘dough’ seems too wet, then I add more, if it’s too dry, add less…start with a smaller quantity)
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. You could use dark chocolate/cacao pieces, or just skip the chocolate if you wish.

Step 1

Thoughroughly combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Roll into balls of about 1″ in diameter (mine were a bit larger).
I use a cookie scoop to get a nice even ball.
Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper & freeze one hour. Store in an airtight container and keep frozen for 2 weeks, or refrigerated for up to 1 week.
