Pumpkin Pie Power Balls
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Coconut oil, ghee or grass-fed butter (for greasing the cookie sheet)
  1. Soak the dates in warm water for 5-10 minutes to soften.
  2. Place the walnuts in a food processor or high speed blender and pulse until ground.
  3. Add the remainder of the ingredients and pulse until well blended, reaching a sticky consistency (except for the coconut oil - that is just for greasing your cookie sheet).
  4. Transfer mixture into a bowl and place in the fridge to allow to firm up a bit (at least 20 minutes).
  5. Remove bowl from the fridge and scoop out mixture in spoonfuls, rolling them into 2” balls.
  6. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 degree for 15-20 minutes, or until slightly golden.
  7. Allow to cool and enjoy!
  8. Can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge up to 7 days.
