Fall Recipe: Pumpkin Energy Bites

Pumpkin Energy Bites | Recipe by Danielle Omar, RD

There is just something about trying new fall recipes this time of the year! This one is extra special because it's festive, delicious and healthy!

Here is what you will need:

  • 10 Medjool dates
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, crushed
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup raw cashews
  • 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder or extract
  • 1 Tbsp real maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp cacao nibs (or 1 Tbsp cocoa powder)
  • 1 packet Classic Calcium + Vitamin D 

For Coating

  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup Rice Krispies

Instructions

Make the coating first by pulsing the ingredients together until flour-like. Place in a small bowl and set aside.

To the food processor add the dates, cashews, peanuts, and cocoa nibs together and blend well. Once pretty smooth and not too crunchy, add vanilla, Classic Calcium + Vitamin D powder, pumpkin, peanut butter, and maple syrup.

Once well combined, remove from food processor and place in a bowl.

Stir in Rice Krispies. Roll mixture into balls and then coat the balls with the topping. Do this by just dropping each ball into the ball and coating.

Store in the fridge and enjoy!
