Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Yields: 20 -22 bites


  • 1 packed cup chopped Medjool dates pits removed, duh.
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or agave optional
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground all spice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats not quick cooking!
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup raw or toasted pepitas you can chop them if you like
  • 1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate or more if you’re really into chocolate


  • Place the chopped dates, pumpkin puree, honey/agave (if using), chia seeds vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, all spice and salt in a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients become a thick paste.
  • Transfer the pumpkin paste to a mixing bowl and add the oats, pecans, pepitas and dark chocolate. Mix until well combined. Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes until it’s cold and easy to handle.
  • Using damp hands, form the mixture into roughly 1-inch balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. (Or freeze them for infinity weeks!)
