- 1 1/2 cups raw almonds (or your favorite nut or seed)
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or ground cinnamon)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
- 10 pitted Medjool dates, about 1 cup
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or ground cinnamon)
- Combine the almonds, hemp seeds, coconut, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, coconut oil, pumpkin puree, and dates in the base of a food processor. Turn the processor on high for about 2 minutes or until the ingredients are well combined.
- Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and then use your hands to roll the dough into about 15 cookies, about 1-1/2-inches in diameter.
- To make the pumpkin pie spice dusting, place the coconut sugar and pumpkin pie spice onto a plate. Roll each cookie in the sugar until covered.
- For the best texture and sweetness, place the cookies in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours to chill.
- You can freeze these cookies for up to 2 months in a tightly sealed container. Just defrost them then the fridge for about 4 hours before you serve them.
- If you are refined sugar-free, then leave off the coconut sugar dusting.
- You can easily double or triple this recipe depending on how many cookies you want to make.
- If you are nut-free, you can easily substitute the almonds with pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds and leave out the coconut oil.
- You can feel free to get creative with making any other substitutions based on what you have on hand or for certain food allergies. These types of energy bites are very forgiving! You will need about 1 and 3/4 cups of any combination of nuts and seeds.
- If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use ground cinnamon instead.
