Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

Servings 16 balls


  • 1 cup Medjool dates pitted
  • 1 cup salted cashews
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon


  • If your dates are hard or cold from being stored in the refrigerator, toss them in the microwave for 15 – 20 seconds.
  • Combine all ingredients in the food processor. Blend and pulse until well combined and starts to form a ball. If the dough isn’t coming together, drizzle a little more maple syrup into the mix.
  • Roll 1 Tbsp of dough into a ball. Repeat until all the dough is gone. This will make 16 – 18 energy bites. >
  • Store the bites in the refrigerator or freezer.


Other Thoughts
  • Use gluten-free oats, if needed.
  • You can use water instead of maple syrup to make them added sugar-free but I don’t think they turn out as well. A little maple syrup never hurt anyone.
  • If you like chocolate with your pumpkin spice, add some mini chocolate chips or even some white chocolate chips. Show me your creations!

Kids: My kids love to grab these out of the freezer and toss them in the microwave for 10 seconds. They like them even more when I add sprinkles. There’s a reason the Birthday Cake energy bites are a winner around here. Toss some holiday sprinkles in and call it a day!
