No Bake Pumpkin Balls That Are Totally Guilt Free!

Yesterday I whipped up a batch of these no bake pumpkin balls and I have been eating them morning, noon and night ever since.  Yes, even for breakfast.   You know why?  Because if you are looking for healthy pumpkin recipes, look no further than these bite-sized morsels!  And you know what’s even better?  They are incredibly easy to make.  Just mix a few ingredients, roll into balls, cover with cinnamon and sugar and you are done!  Easy and delicious with absolutely zero guilt when I inhale a few at 6 AM! After you finish eating them all, whip up a batch of pumpkin donuts, too.  You can not have enough pumpkin, right?

Okay, so how do you make these pumpkin balls with so little effort?  I started with whole oats and put them through my Cuisinart Food Processor.  I don’t know how people live without one of these things, honestly.  However, if you don’t want to start with whole oats and grind them yourself, consider picking up some oat flour.  I recently joined Thrive Market which delivers healthy and organic food right to your door.  Membership is incredibly inexpensive and you get wholesale prices for a ton of awesome products.  Check them out and order oat flour online and save yourself some time and money. Oat flour is probably finer than what I ground in my food processor but these no bake pumpkin balls still came out delicious!

There are a few variations you can use for this no bake recipe.  I chose to use maple syrup for my liquid sweetener since I have a ton after our recent trip up to Vermont.  You could use honey, brown rice syrup, agave nectar or whatever other sticky liquid sweeteners you have on hand.  The nut butter I chose was almond butter but peanut butter or cashew butter would also work. If your final dough comes out too sticky, add a bit more coconut flour.   If it is too dry, add more sticky sweetener.  You basically want a dough that holds together well when you roll it but that isn’t ‘wet’.  Other than mixing and rolling, that is about it!  Just whip up a batch and enjoy!

Comments

  1. These sound yummy! I think I'll give them a try! Do you think I could sub almond meal for the coconut flour? I already have that around.
  2. Made these today to take as a nice treat at the baseball game tonight. I subbed a few dates for the brown sugar and coconut sugar to roll them in with the cinnamon. Very tasty. Do you store yours in the refrigerator?
  3. Hi! I have just finished rolling these and about to roll in sugar/cinnamon, and noticed that coconut flour is in the ingredients list, but not listed in the instructions. Is it a key ingredient that will be missed?
    • Just updated the recipe. As long as you adjust the amount of oat flour and/or almond butter to get the right rolling consistency, you should be fine.
  4. Where does the coconut flour come to play in the directions?
