Flourless Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

These flour-less pumpkin oatmeal cookies are soft baked and healthy enough to be called a “breakfast food!”  They are quick to whip up and you might want to make a double batch because they stay fresh for up to 2 weeks in the fridge and 3 months in the freezer!

Recipe Notes

Make your own oat flour by blending 3/4 cup old fashioned oats in a blender or food processor until smooth flour forms. Or you could try swapping the oat flour out with protein powder.

Pumpkin No Bake Energy Bites

Recipes like this can double as breakfast, a snack or even a quick dessert! These “bites” are super easy to make, are packed with protein and lots of ingredients you can feel great about putting into your body!

The recipe not only calls for pumpkin spices and some pumpkin puree, but also toasted pumpkin seeds!  If you don’t have any on hand, you’re welcome to substitute in any other nuts or seeds.  But the “pepitas” really add an extra crunch and flavor to these bites.  They are the perfect mixture of sweet and slightly salty.

Instructions
  1. Combine the dates, honey, pumpkin puree, chia (or flax) seeds, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in a food processor, and pulse until smooth and combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the oats, coconut flakes and pepitas until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Once the mixture is cool (and easier to work with), use a spoon or cookie scoop to shape it into your desired size of energy balls (about 1-inch in diameter). Alternatively, you can line a small baking pan with parchment paper, and press the mixture evenly into the pan, let it cool, and then cut into bars.
Recipe Notes

Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (Storing them in the refrigerator especially helps the energy bites hold their shape.)

If you feel like adding a little extra sweetness, these would also be great with some Lily's, stevia-sweetened chocolate chips tossed in.  See the CHALLENGED APPROVED FOODS PAGE for purchase recommendations.
