Total time
Vegan, gluten-free, packed with healthy fat, and naturally sweet, these pumpkin spice balls are like Mother Nature's Halloween candy!
Recipe type: snack, dessert
Serves: 16
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates (about 10)
  • ½ cup oats (certified gluten-free if needed)
  • ½ cup almond meal/flour
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup slivered almonds (you can also use regular, chopped almonds)
  1. Combine dates through salt in a food processor. Pulse until mixture starts forming a ball.
  2. Add slivered almonds and pulse some more, until chopped and combined to your liking. (If you want a smoother ball, add almonds at the same time as the rest of the ingredients).
  3. Tip mixture onto a clean workspace and form into about 16 balls. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze.
