PUMPKIN PIE PROTEIN NO-BAKE BITES
PREP TIME
TOTAL TIME
These easy, cakey Pumpkin Pie Protein No-Bake Bites have the flavor of pumpkin pie, but are secretly packed with protein and fiber! Vegan, gluten-free, paleo
Serves: 12-15 bites
INGREDIENTS
For the protein powder version:
  • 9 Medjool dates, pitted (place in bowl of warm water if hard and dry)
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin)
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 scoop (30g) vanilla brown rice protein powder (I like Vega Vanilla Protein + Greens)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs or chocolate chips (optional)
For the non-protein powder version:
  • 12 Medjool dates, pitted (place in bowl of warm water if hard and dry)
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin)
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs or chocolate chips (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place dates, applesauce, pumpkin, almond milk, and vanilla in a large food processor. Blend until pureed, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. Add coconut flour, brown rice protein (is using first recipe), pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Blend until a ball of “dough” forms. If it’s too wet, add a bit more coconut flour. If it’s too dry, add a bit more almond milk.
  3. Stir in cacao nibs. Roll into 12-15 bites.
  4. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
