Pumpkin Energy Bites – The Secret Recipe Club

Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already Halloween…where did fall go? My kids are so excited to go trick-or-treating tonight. Madeline is dressing up as Cleopatra and Cooper is going as Batman. I’ll be looking forward to them going to bed as soon as we’re done. I’m not looking forward to the sugar high…and then sugar crash.

Today’s recipe is the Secret Recipe Club‘s special themed reveal for Fall Dishes. My assigned blog was, Cooking with Traci. She has so many great recipes and is currently doing 31 Days of Slow Cooking…so many great ideas that I’ll be borrowing this winter! I decide to go with her recipe for Pumpkin No Bake Energy Balls…except make it into bars since my kids make a mess with energy balls. Bites are much easier for them and not as messy! These had the perfect pumpkin flavor and they’re the perfect treat for them for after school.

1 cup pitted and chopped dates
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
pinch of salt
1 cup quick oats
1 cup coconut flakes, toasted
1 cup pecans (Traci used pumpkin seeds)

In a food processor, puree the dates, honey, pumpkin, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the oats, coconut and nuts until combined.

Press the mixture into a parchment lined 8×8 square baking pan. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the mixture to set. Remove from the pan and cut into bite sized pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
