I’m going to soak up this last week and a half of pumpkin as much as possible before everything turns peppermint so I decided to make these Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites! Here’s a delicious recipe for these simple and healthy energy bites. I used raw ground pecans instead of peanut butter and rolled them in coconut to make them easier to handle.
This recipe couldn’t be more simple. Combine all ingredients except coconut and then roll into rounded tablespoons and roll in coconut. To grind the pecans and flax seed I used this food processor. I chose not to mix all of the ingredients in the food processor so there would still be texture with the oats!
