These are super easy to make and SUPER yummy. They tasted just like pumpkin pie to me. The consistency was a lot softer than I expected it to be but that didn’t bother me much. These are a great treat for when you are craving something pumpkin-y. You could have these as a snack for extra energy before or after a workout or as an after dinner treat!
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup raw pecan halves
1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (reserve small amount for garnish)
1 tsp maple syrup
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Place dates in a medium bowl and cover with warm water. Allow to soak for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Place pecans in food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add dates, pumpkin, coconut, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice. Pulse until well mixed. Place in a medium bowl and refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes.
Scoop out the mixture into 16 tablespoon-sized pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Roll the balls in the reserved coconut.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
