Pumpkin Granola Snack Bites

Jump to Recipe·Print Recipe

Pumpkin pie flavor in bite-sized pumpkin energy balls with an outer granola crunch and fruit-sweetened chewy center. Gluten-free, vegan, easy to make!

My brain hasn’t yet figured out how to top Pumpkin Creme Brûlée in the pumpkin dessert department (although I think pumpkin + chocolate is on the horizon), so we’ll take things in a simpler snacking direction today.

There’s nothing more snack synonymous than no-bake date balls/bites/whatevers. But I didn’t want them to just be ordinary orbs. They needed a memorable mix-in. A textured topping. A special something.

And if you follow me on Instagram you know that I just made a fresh batch of homemade granola. How convenient. Granola gave that crust-like crunch that these mini-sized pumpkin pie pretenders needed.

Use your favorite granola I used the same crunchy quinoa granola from this Balsamic Strawberry Banana Crunch Bowl.

Chewy center. Crunchy coating. Fruit sweet.

  3. Process until it forms a ball.
  4. Roll into 10-12 balls.
  5. Refrigerate for about 2 hours until firm.
  6. Roll each ball in granola and press in firmly so it sticks.
  7. Snack away! And keep the leftovers in the fridge.
