Ingredients

  • 3

    cups dry, uncooked oatmeal (I used gluten-free thick cut oats)

  • 1

    cup all-natural pumpkin puree

  • 1

    cup all-natural peanut butter, or almond butter

  • 2/3

    cup pure maple syrup or raw honey

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2

    teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2

    tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 4 to 6

    tablespoons ground flax seeds (if ‘dough’ seems too wet, then I add more ground flax, if it’s too dry, add less…start with a smaller quantity)

  • 1

    cup walnuts, almonds, peanuts, small chopped and coconut flakes, or any combination of mix-ins that equal 1 cup total.

  • 1/2

    cup mini dark chocolate chips. You could use dark chocolate/cacao pieces, or just skip them altogether.

Directions

Combine all ingredients together in a medium bowl until very thoroughly mixed. Roll into balls of about 1-inch in diameter (mine were a bit larger). Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper & freeze one hour. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
