Hold on, hold on. I’m envisioning a perfect fall snack.

It has pumpkin, oats, maple, chia seeds, almond butter, pumpkin seeds, sea salt, and cinnamon all packed together in a densely-textured nutritional powerhouse bomb. It’s just sweet enough, and it slightly resembles cookie dough, but with more of a fall cookie flavor and more of a feel-good healthy body buzz.

It requires no baking and no chopping. It’s made in 15 minutes and easily stored in the fridge or freezer for easy grab-a-ball-and-go level snackage.

It can be a breakfast, snack, or two-bite dessert.

And also, as much as we love them, it’s made with zero dates.

Are you into this or ARE YOU INTO THIS?


Ready? Put everything in your food processor.

Blend it up. Add chocolate chips because joy is important, too.

Roll it into balls. Freeze, refrigerate, do whatever you do.

Okay, that’s all. I’m serious. Pumpkin Energy Bites + Hungry Fall You is a winning combo that was made for such a time as this.

Slightly sticky, dense, seedy, chocolate chippy, super healthy, and just the right amount of cinnamony maple sweetness. Fine, Pumpkin Energy Bites, YOU WIN.


In case you didn’t know, my love for salty sweet energy bites of happiness runs deep and wide. Check out these Cookie Dough Energy Bites (yes, COOKIE DOUGH) and Peanut Butter Pretzel Energy Bites for all your fall snack emergency needs.
