How to make Pumpkin Energy Bites
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these bites. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Rolled oats: You can also use quick porridge oats.
- Desiccated coconut: OR shredded OR flaked coconut. If using shredded or flaked coconut, be sure to pulse it in a food processor to break it down – this will help create more tight, compact balls. No need to do this with desiccated coconut.
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground ginger
- Ground nutmeg
- Ground cloves
- Canned pumpkin puree
- Honey, maple syrup, or agave
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: Dark or semi-sweet.
To make these energy balls, simply start by grabbing a large mixing bowl, and mixing together the oats, coconut, spices, pumpkin, honey, vanilla, and chocolate chips until completely combined.
Refrigerate the mixture until firm enough to roll into balls as it may be a little too soft and crumbly – about 30 minutes to an hour.
Once chilled, roll the dough into 1oz balls. Refrigerate or freeze once again to allow them to firm up before eating.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
